 I am a happily married mum of 2 living in Australia who is obsessed with cardmaking! I started out scrapbooking but in 2012 I fell in love with cardmaking and have never looked back. I love using cute digi images mostly and I colour them with Copic markers. I also own an embellishments company called Flourish with a Bling, we design all our own products and I use them often on my cards.  I hope you’ll drop in and take a peek at the store and/or my blog at  XOX Lucy

Well aren't they brilliant? So its now up to you to get out 
all your beautiful Flowers and Lace and  get crafting.

This challenge is open until 19th July

 Please remember to make a new project, link it to your post, not your blog, and  also no back linking. You can enter up to 3 projects

Darlene from Dar's Crafty Creations
 Hi!  I’m Darlene Pavlick from Akron, Ohio, USA.  My husband & I are originally from Pittsburgh, PA and that is where our families reside.  I’ve been paper crafting for about 12 years and since I’m now retired, I get to play in my crafting cave nearly every day!  Thanks to Crafting by Design for having me as a guest designer … I’m honored!

I have had a passion for crafting for as long as I can remember. Now that I have retired I can fully indulge my passion and can experiment with new techniques and different types of craft. I love card making and 3D crafting and at the minute I am branching into mixed media projects.
I'm a stay-at-home mom to a very special young lady in Northern Illinois. I've been crafting since I was a young child, and when I became a "SAHM" I turned to crafting to stay busy. Creating cards, altering items, and just having fun with paper and Copic Markers is an amazing hobby that I truly love.

Wonderful creations from our Design Team and Guest Designers, I'm sure you'll agree! A few things to remember: no back dating, only enter 3 times and your project must have been made by you. The challenge is open until July 13th We're really looking forward to seeing your crafty makes so come and join in with the Challenge!!
