More Introductions

We are so excited, today are the final introductions to the team.
We start our new challenge next Thursday the 1st October.

 I have challenged the team  to produce their first DT card, challenging them all  with the same title.

 'My Favourite Things'  
This can be a technique, a colour, a stamp, a die anything to produce a card.  



Let me introduce you to Sharon and Julie


SHARON 


Favourite Things are CAS and Promakers


and 

JULIE

My faves are CAS, Colouring with Copics and challenges.


For the record, I'm a retired primary school teacher from Yorkshire, currently living the good life with my hubby in the Welsh Marches area of England. We have two grown up kids and one adorable Grandson.
I love being creative and as well as card making I have been known to make my own clothes, do machine patchwork, paint in water colours and soft pastels, do the odd scrapbook, research my family history (traced one line back to 1611!) and read crime fiction. I'm on a few design teams and have also been a guest on a few more.
I love the CAS style, never been a girly girl, and embellishments are few and far between on my cards. As I said earlier I love to colour in Copics and w/c as well as use die cuts in my designs.
I'm also very competitive and since I can no longer play tennis and badminton I like to enter challenges, it's mainly why I started blogging.
I hope you will support this new enterprise and I'm looking forward to working with the rest of the DT. 


Thanks to all of the team for their contributions to the 
Pre-Launch introductions.
We'll be starting next week, so we hope you will all
enjoy the blog and our future challenges. 

Thanks Caz

HELEN


Favourite things:  pink and kraft colour combination, 
Promarkers, cute images, lots of layers, Christmas cards


My name is Helen and I live in the north west of England on the Wirral peninsula.  I work for a charity called the Abbeyfield Society as an Activities Coordinator looking after older people and helping them to stay active.  I also teach weekend stamping and card making classes for Little Claire.  Card making is my main crafty interest and I'm lucky enough to design for several companies as well as being part of the Design Team for a range of challenge blogs.  My card making style is what I call 'clean and simple with layers' and I love stamping, using digi stamps and my Promarkers.  I'm really looking forward to being part of the team at Cardz 4 Galz!

Introducing 

KIM


Favourite thing is TEXTURE


My name is Kim and after living in Southampton for the first 50 years of my life, I was lucky enough to be able to retire to the country in a pretty little village on the edge of the New Forest . It was such a change having lived in a large town and working in London for 26 years. I live with my husband who is also retired and our cat Buddy. I’ve always done little bits of craft but once I started card making it completely took over and I’m lucky enough to have my own craft room which has expanded into the spare room too 

*******************
Thanks for visiting, it is getting so close, next week
I will introduce the remainder of the team.
Then we will be opening the blog for Challenges  on
1st October 2015.

Jan


Hi, my name is Jan (and some of you might know me as Jaybe). I live in South Yorkshire and am married with two grown-up daughters and my two gorgeous fur babies who are never very far away from my feet.

I have always enjoyed making things and have been paper crafting for over ten years now, after receiving a handmade card from a friend. I went out and bought a card making kit for myself and the rest is history – you know the story! After very quickly filling the dining room table and all the space around it, I now have my very own craft space in my conservatory.

Crafting has now become an addiction and I would love to craft full-time (maybe one day!)  My first love is making cards and would describe my style as mainly cute, with lots of embellishments – I often have to tell myself to ‘step away from the card’! I also love making home d├ęcor projects as gifts and for my home.  I have dabbled in all kinds of crafts, including art journaling, scrapbooking, altered art, ATCs, zentangle and am willing to give ‘anything a go’. I also sell some of my cards and gifts.

I  am the owner of the Fantasy Stampers challenge blog and the Alphabet challenge blog and also work on several Design Teams. I am looking forward to being part of the team here at ‘Cardz 4 Galz' and wish Caz every success with her new venture.

When I’m not crafting you can usually find me with my nose in a book - my second passion! Anyone who knows me will tell you that I can’t walk past a book shop without buying some new books.  I love fantasy fiction and am addicted to all things vampire related.  

Well that’s me folks
Hugz, Jan xx
