Introducing the team..

Good morning everyone, it's part three of meet the team, we only have a week to go and then we launch our first challenge, but before we do lets meet more of my design team..

 Hi! My name is Mari Kyt√∂harju. 
I live in a little town called Kauhajoki in Western Finland with my husband and two adult children. I've been crocheting and knitting since I was a little girl, and I found stamping and card making about six years ago. I think coloring images is very relaxing. I mainly use Derwent Inktenses for coloring. My cards are quite simple, I don't normally use a lot of decorations, as I want the image to be the center of attention. It's wonderful to be part of the Crafty Addicts Design Team!

Hi, I am Terri Snode. I live in Northeastern Ohio with my husband, Larry and 2 dogs, Avalance (german shepherd/golden lab mix) and Maxim (maltese). We have 2 beautiful daughters, one handsome son-in-law and four adorable grandchildren. I began stamping in 2004 and it has become my passion. I love to create greeting cards and 3D paper projects for friends and family. I also love to read, colored pencil art work, zentangle and crochet.

My name is Gale Knight and I am from Texas. I have always been crafty. I started out sewing, then embroidery, cross-stitch, and jewelry making. My sister got me into scrapbooking and then I started stamping and making cards a few years ago. I enjoy using digital stamps and love to bring them alive with my Copic markers.

Wow ladies thank you so much, I am so glad that you are on my design team..
Please join me next Monday when I will introduce the last of my design to you all before we start.

Meet the designers...

Hi everyone, welcome to The Crafty Addicts over the next few weeks I will be introducing the team to you and their fabulous work.  So lets get started and first up is..

I am called Jackie and I live just outside Southampton with my very patient husband Keith. Our one daughter is all grown up and has left home to live nearer to her job. 

I have crafted one way or another for as long as I can remember. About eight years ago I noticed that some people were making handmade cards, especially at Christmas, and I decided to have a try at this myself. Since then I haven’t looked back and the house is now full of my crafty stash. Stamping and die-cutting are a passion of mine and I have many stamps and dies. I have applied my card making skills to scrap booking some of our memorable family moments it is a wonderful way to treasure a memory. Just recently I have started using digital images and I am honing my colouring skills. I started blogging about a year and half ago and this has opened up many opportunities for me. I am thrilled to be designing for the Crafty Addicts Challenge Blog.

Next up we have Helen

Hi I'm Helen Haines. I live in the UK with my golf fanatic husband and soppy dog. 
I've been crafting for more years than I care to remember and like many started with cross-stitch. I am now an avid paper-crafter and love to colour using alcohol markers, pencils and distress inks. If it doesn't move I'll colour it! I like to create my own backgrounds but can't resist all those beautiful papers and dies out there.
I also like to knit and have recently learnt to crochet and do rag rugging. I even made a rag rug Christmas tree and wreath last year. I love to learn new techniques for crafting of any description and love mixed media. I had a go at Fimo once, needless to say slight disaster making a little Alice in Wonderland who looks more like a bumper car. I keep her for reference, must practice!!

Wow ladies thank you so much, I am so glad you are part of my team.  Please pop back next week, when I will introduce two more designers to you
