Caroline
My names Caroline. I have been crafting since I was about 10, and am now 51. Married to hubby for 31 years, have two grown up sons and 2 lovely grandchildren aged 5 and 4. I don't work now due to health problems with my back but I used to teach adult education classes in sugarcraft and crafts in general. I have made cards for about 25 years starting off with decoupage but only over the last 2 years have started using digi images and marker pens, which I am totally addicted too. I still use a lot of my crafts cd's but mainly for the backing papers now. I used to make and decorate wedding cakes and make all my own flowers for them but due to my bad back I have had to give up so cardmaking is my everyday life now. I can lock myself away in my craft room and totally loose myself in my cards for hours.

Bugaboo Stamps
Everything That You Ever Wanted to Know About Bugaboo Stamps: A Short Essay As if raising five children in the  frozen land of the North was not enough of a challenge, Jodie Mackrell decided to dip her cold little Canadian toes into the world of papercrafting by opening an online store full of her illustrations. That was two years ago. Today Bugaboo Stamps is one of the leading companies in digital images, and we're still growing! From seriously snarky to sugary sweet to sublimely soulful all the way over to the other side of the super sexy spectrum, you're bound to find all that you need and more to create your paper projects. Jodie works very hard to provide New Releases and Freebies every week! If your taste runs to rubber (and  you know who you are), you can find Bugaboo Stamps stamps at Totally Stampalicious. And finally, join the Bugaboo Stamps DT for weekly challenges at Catch the Bug.

This week's PRIZE from Bugaboo Stamps is ...
Seven (7) Digital Stamps of WINNER's Choice!

Please join us in Welcoming our Guest Designer this week!!

Mags
My name is Margaret but everyone calls me Mags. I am married and have two lovely grown up daughters. I have always been creative but got into card making about five years ago and just love it. I am lucky enough to have my own crafty room and spend hours in there. Hubby likes to tell everyone that I spend all my time cutting and sticking. In reality I enjoy trying new techniques and will have a go at anything. I love blogging and have made lots of blogging friends. It is so nice to be part of such a lovely crafty community.

Dee
Hi! I’m Dee and I’m a North Dakota native and I love living here. I love the long summer days, the wide open spaces and I really enjoy that my entire family lives within 20 miles of us.
I am married to most wonderful man for 30+ years. Together we have two children that are married and between the two families they have blessed us with six grandchildren. Sunday is my favorite day of the week as that is the day we try to get together as a family. I get to try out all of those recipes I Pinned throughout the week and I also get in some gramma time too!
I started out in my teen years doing a variety of craft projects. About 10 years ago, I started scrapbooking. As many of you, I couldn't bear to throw away those leftover scraps of paper – I knew they had to be good for something. That was the beginning of my love for card-making. I’m still learning new techniques and styles for card-making – someday I hope to master copic markers but until then I will keep on practicing. The biggest compliment for me is when the recipient of a card is thrilled with their card.
I love all of the different card challenges, some of my favorite cards are those that start out with one idea in mind and by the time it is completed it has taken on a totally different appearance usually caused by a dot of misplaced ink, a small paper tear – I see you smiling, you’ve all been there!
