New Design Team Members

Good morning! 

 Today we are pleased to welcome the NEW Ladies in

The new Ladies are:
Rosmarie, Tracy, Netta, Goga and Branka.
Let the Ladies introduce themselves:

I was born in 1960 and grew up in the beautiful Bavaria (Germany). I have been happy with my husband since 1980 and have been living in France since 1982. We have two sons and two grandchildren - a boy and a girl.
I started making my own cards in 2005. First I embroidered the cards and then I made 3D cards for a long time - the stamping virus infected me only in 2011 and since then I am definitely addicted! :-)
My blog was born in 2012 to share my creations with all those who love this hobby too!
Before making cards, I painted watercolors that I also framed.
I like spending time in my garden, reading or playing tennis. I am also a passionate cook and I like to surprise my guests with delicious dishes.

Hello everyone, my name is Tracy from Australia. And now that I have stopped my happy dance over being selected for the design team I can tell you about myself. I am a Christian Wife and Stay at home Mum to two children – our daughter who is going to University next year to do her Masters of Teaching and our Son who will be graduating Year 11 of High School at the end of November. 
I have been a crafter in one way or another most of my life. I have loved craft since my Mum introduced me to a sewing machine when I was 10 years old.  I don’t sew as much as I would like to but I do still sew. I have also card crafted in one way or another since then as well. Mainly to give to family and friends and the most common kind of card made has been Christmas cards. But now I craft all occasions – even those hard male themed cards. With most of my Christmas cards you will not see a lot of snow themed images because in Australia we don’t have Snow/Cold we have Sand/Heat. So I try to find images that relate more to what we know.
I look forward to working with the other members of the design team and too seeing everyone’s entries into the challenges.

I live in FL USA with my husband.  I am blessed as my husband is very supportive of my hobby and he even turned a master bedroom into my craft room.  I work in an office during the day but at night & weekends I live in my craft room along with my 2 Yorkies who love to hang out with me.   I have been scrapbooking now since very early 1990's and card making since 2006. Since I discovered card making, it has become my favorite past time.  Always looking for something new. Exploring new techniques.  Many of these techniques I explore and discover can be used in both my scrapbooking and card making.  I love to create and then give away!  Christmas is my favorite holiday so I am looking forward to being on a team making Christmas cards all year long!

Hi, I am Goga and I come from a small town in the middle of Slovenia. 
I  began crafting at the very young age, started with  knitting, crocheting and making Idrija lace. Later on I picked up crafts with paper, where I found my new passion. I started with greeting and holiday cards, but now I'm regularly making cards an other paper crafts for all occasions.

Hello, I'm Branka and I live in Slovenia  with my husband and three children. First son is a student of biology, daughter and the youngest son are attending grammar school. Crafting is my hobby.
I've been crafting since I was a child: knitting,making polymer clay jewellery, embroidering, making cards and other paper creations. In the past few years, I've focused  on paper craft cards, scrapbook albums, mixed media frames and pictures. 
I like cooking and bakingI am very happy to have the opportunity to join the DT of the 52CCT.

We are so pleased to welcome them all to the Design Team.
