Guest Designers
Viv from Viv's Visuals
Hi, I’m Viv and I live on the top of a (windy) moor in the North West of England and have been card making for over 10 years. The walls of my craft room are adorned with mixed media canvases, fabric postcards and altered art made over the years.  I love all kinds of crafting and nothing suits me better than getting messy with inks, paper, paint and glue! I have no particular favourite style in my cards – I love CAS and vintage and frilly equally!  I divide my spare time between crafting, tracing my family history and my much loved sport of lawn bowling.  I am real chuffed to have been asked to be the Guest DT here at Crafting by Designs and hope that you like my card!
Bonnie from This Creative Day
Hello!  My name is Bonnie, and I live in sunny Arizona.  I am the wife of an incredible man, and a mom to 3 amazing kids, and 3 fur babies. Our home is very busy and interesting!  I work from home part time and in my spare time I love to cook, bake and make crafty things.  And I'm also a HUGE football fan!  The Philadelphia Eagles are my team, but I'm a huge fan of the sport (both real and fantasy).  I've been a scrapbooker for many years, and started making cards about 2 years ago.  Coloring and card making has quickly become a huge passion of mine. I love being part of an online community where we are able to share our creations.

How's that for inspiration?  We had so much fun
making these projects and can't wait to see yours!
Please link your projects below by March 25 for a chance
to win some lovely images from these wonderful sponsors.
Don't forget, our rules have changed and there
is a limit of 3 entries per person for this challenge.

Thinking of You


Hi everyone, Doris here with a new challenge:
Thinking of You.
If you're like me, you like to keep a few cards like
this in your stash for those times you'd like to
give someone a little pick-me-up and let them
know that they're in your thoughts.
This week we wanted to think outside the box
and used a cute little Valentine image from our sponsor
Lia Stampz  


Look thru your images and stamps and let's see
if you can use one that doesn't necessarily say
"thinking of you", but can work for that theme.

Here are a few samples from the Design Team and
our fabulous Guest Designers.

Doris using Valentine Girl


Julia using using Valentine Girl

Tammy used Little Ana 



Guest Designer
Hello from Central Oregon! My name is Neva and I live in Bend with my husband and two active boys plus the assorted animals that share our home and property.  We recently added 8 German Shepherd puppies to the mix, and chicks will be coming soon. I’ve been stamping and making cards for about 20 years, and scrapbooking for 17 years. Recently crafting has been good therapy as a very dear friend lost her battle with cancer and this card is for her wonderful adult son. Please come check out my blog at snippetscrafter.blogspot.com.
 
Lyn from My Purple House
I am a Georgia girl. I’m not married and have no children except my 8 year old Black lab Cash (As in Johnny Cash– I am from the South after all.) Market Research – Focus Groups and such -  is my daytime job. But, as I am a night owl, at night I like to do something more creative. I am a person that loves to learn new crafts so I have done a lot of them from knitting , to jewelry making, to scrap booking/card making, etc… I am so excited to have been asked to once again Guest Design for Crafting by Designs! Have fun with the challenge!
 

Link your projects below and please remember to follow the rules:
you can link up three projects, they must be linked to your blog, and
they must be posted during the week this challenge is open.
Thanks for playing along with us!
