Guest Designers
Doreen from Doreen's Dream
Hello...I am Doreen,a very enthusiastic crafter living in Sheffield UK. I am married and have three grown up children and three Grandchildren. I have always crafted in one way or another . But now prefer to get mucky with inks and paint.

Barbara from Glitterarti

I have been crafting all of my life....well, since I was 4 years old. I love days when I can get out of bed, not bother with make-up, or housework and go straight into my craft room. I live in a beautiful part of England, just outside of the 'World Heritage' city of Bath, with my OH, Alan and our German Shepherd, Finn. I have 2 wonderful grown-up sons, Nick and Adam, 1 gorgeous daughter-in-law Emma and two amazing grandchildren aged 2 and 6 weeks... The rest of my family still live 'Up North', and although I miss them, we see each other as often as possible. I still consider myself very, very lucky indeed.

Pinky from Pinky's World
I am a Mum of 4 and Grandmother of two lovely boys. I have been crafting for as long as I can remember but took to cardmaking when my youngest child was born (22 years ago) and have been at it ever since. I sell a lot of my cards and they are all commissions so make to suit the individual. I love the variety of stamps and digi stamps available to us now and use a variety of pens (promarkers, chameleon pens and copics) to colour them. I hope you enjoy looking at my card today, it was made for a young man to give to his girlfriend. They gave me a photo and wanted me to use images that looked like them lol. Think they were pleased with the outcome!

Teresa from The Fat Cactus
I have been crafting all my life and started card making over 10 years ago. I am lucky enough to work in a wonderful Craft Store where I get to enjoy my hobby as part of my job. I live in Staffordshire, England with my partner, my daughter and her partner, and our two cats. When I'm not crafting or blogging, I enjoy walking in the countryside and photography.

Ann from Ann's Cardmaking Garden
Hello everyone! 
My name is Ann Chuang and I live in Taiwan. I am a junior high school math teacher and a mom. I started crafting about 2012. At that time, I started making very simple cards that would take me hours to make, but the look of pure joy that people give you after receiving a handmade card is worth every second! I have always liked creating, inspiration comes from random places.  I love card making in different styles and have no set style. I love sharing my love of stamping/cardmaking/mixed media with everyone & I'm really looking forward to sharing my creations with all of you!
