The Paper Players DT call

Hi bloggies!

My blog buddy, Sandra mentioned to me that The Paper Players were looking for some new guest DTs for a 3 mth spot on their challenge blog! A lot of my friends are on Design Teams … and I have thought ‘how cool’! I was a DT for  INKspirations 4U! for over a year … and really enjoyed my time with the girls there  — but it wasn’t a challenge blog – it was a papercraft gifts type of forum — so it was a little different. Anyway … I thought I would apply and keep my fingers crossed! 😀 I am not one to ‘blow my own trumpet’ … but I kinda have to … to supply the details for the girls over at the Paper Players. Here are 3 of my favourite creations …

Stamping 411 #200It was so hard to narrow it down to just 3 … because I have such a varied style of card making. I tried to pick 3 different styles! 😉 But … I just have to add one more … to show that I have just delved into the world of Prismacolour Pencils … and wanted to share a sample … (remember … novice sample!)

So … a little about me … I am a SAHM with 5 kids (4 still at home … 3 at uni & 1 at school). I work 2 days a week from home for my hubby! My favourite place in the world is the swing seat on our front verandah! I do love spending time with my family & friends … and enjoy the time I spend with my church friends too!

I guess I would like to join a Design Team to meet some new cardmakers … and make some new friends! I am also keen to share ideas with some amazing bloggers out there in blog land. I My bloggies (blog buddies) can vouch for the fact that I have left a reply to EVERY comment I have received on my blog … so I am sure that I can be committed to giving encouragement to all those who participate … it is just who I am! 😀 Oh … and you can check out my creative awards at the bottom of my sidebar! 🙂

Thanks for the opportunity to share something of me with you! I hope you enjoyed this little peek into my cardmaking world. Hugs xxx
