Welcome Lori and Sherry!

Click HERE for our current challenge!

Hi everyone! Happy first weekend in December... hopefully you're getting your craft on! Please join me in welcoming two new designers to the Love To Craft Challenge Blog DT! Lori and Sherry will both begin creating with us on January 1st. They are both the newest designers on the Love To Scrap Challenge Blog DT, so needless to say, I was thrilled they wanted to 'cross over' to this DT too, lol! Click on their names above their photos and you'll go directly to their blogs which I know you'll love!

So without further ado, here are our new teammies, Lori and Sherry...

Hello! My name is Lori, and I am so excited to be a part of the Love to Craft Challenge Blog DT! I live in a small town in SW Missouri with my husband, Scott, and we have 3 kids and one granddaughter, whom I get the pleasure of watching during the week while her Mommy teaches! I started scrapbooking in 1998 and card making soon followed. There is nothing that relaxes me more than spending time in my craft room making pretty things! I have a pretty clean and simple style, although once in a while I do like to add a lot of layers to my projects. You can find more of my work at My Happy Life.



I'm Sherry, I was born in Kentucky and moved to Washington. I am married, I have three children and four grandchildren. I have enjoyed all types of arts and crafts ever since I can remember. Painting, needlework, scrapbooking, crocheting, cross-stitch, drawing and coloring - paper and pixels. When my children where little I enjoyed creating cards with a computer program, now I really enjoy making cards by hand. I am so very excited to be a part of the Love To Craft Challenge Blog Design Team!


Welcome, ladies! We're thrilled you're here!

Big hugs,
Leslie & the DT

Welcome, Penny!

Hello everyone! I'm absolutely delighted to introduce to you the newest Love To Craft Challenge Blog designer, Penny! She will begin creating with us in our next challenge on December 1st! We are so excited she's joining our team - we believe she's going to be a perfect fit because of her passion for crafting! Be sure to visit her blog - Sunshinepens Rambles - we know you're going to love what you see!

So, without further ado, here's our new teammie...


I am Penny Hewitt, known as Pen (Sunshinepens Rambles), and live in a beautiful log cabin in North Devon with my partner Dennis. I am a Partner, Mum and Grandma with 5 grandchildren whose ages are from 4 years to 19 years, where does the time go?

I have always been a crafty sort of person, dabbling in watercolor paints for many years, sewing since I was a child but photography being my passion. Although that has taken a bit of a back seat since starting my blog :)

Being a keen photographer and wishing to share my photos with others I started making Photo Cards and they became a great success. Then around this time a couple of years ago, I thought I am sure I could expand my art work and so Handmade cards developed and have expanded.selling them at our local Village Coffee Mornings and craft fairs.

Maybe I would say I am a perfectionist in my work, if it’s not right with me then it’s not right. But I have learnt over the years that sometimes a mistake is a blessing - if you put your work away for another day and look at it with "different eyes".

I love to try something new, whether it be card making, sewing, painting, or mixed media.

So I am looking forward to sharing my work with you.

Crafty hugs,
Pen


Welcome aboard, Pen! We're proud to call you our teammate and look forward to lots of crafting together! :)

Big hugs,
Leslie & the DT
