Winner+top3 sketch28 and reminder sketch 29

Hello sketchers!  Well we have a massive post today!  Firstly it is time to announce our new DT members!!

So please welcome Angela, Kelly, Marie, and Mariska.

"My name is Angela and I live in North East Scotland with my wonderful husband Roddie and our 2 (mostly) great boys Grant and Phillip.

My main hobbies include digital scrapbooking, cardmaking, papercraft and geocaching.
I have been crafting in some form or another for most of my life starting with cross stitch when I was younger and I moved onto papercrafts and digital crafts as an adult. Scrapbooking came into play mainly when my boys were born and cardmaking became a way of using up the smaller papers. I love to stamp or use digital images and colour with my copics and I also love Zentangle.
I collect Elephants and my favourite colour is purple."


"Let me introduce my self to you.
I am Mariska one of the newest DT girls on this challenge blog.
I am 28 years old and I live in the Netherlands.
10 years ago my mother attempt to make sure I got a new hobby: 3d Cards. But that wasnt' something I liked.
But I know I was a creative girl, so I looked further on the internet and there I found out that there are so many ways to be creative, and so I started to make cards with stamps. The more I did it, the more I liked it and now I am really addict.

What I try to do for you on this blog is one thing, I try to give you inspiration and a fun time.

Hugs Mariska"


"My name is Kelly and I live in Somerset, England with my husband and two children. I first started making cards when I made my wedding invites 11 years ago. My obsession with craft has grown as each year passes. Although stamping is my first love, I do enjoy the other aspects of crafting like making my own mini albums and altering canvas' boxes and tubs. I have made some great friends through craft and am looking forward to being part of this team.

Hugs Kelly x"


Hi, I'm Marie and I live in London, England with my son, Sam and 'fur-baby' Tippy. I started cardmaking about 5 years' ago now after ill health meant I had to give up work and I needed to find something to take up some of the time I had on my hands - little did I know it would take over my life, flat and nearly every waking hour ;-) I love how cardmaking introduced me to blogging and through that I've made so many amazing friends from all over the world. I'm really excited to be a part of this team and look forward to getting to know everyone - both on the team and the people who join in with the challenges!! Hugs, Marie x

Hope you will all give our new DT a warm welcome!  We are really excited to have them with us!
