Sherri Baldy's My Besties International welcomes our newest designer, Irene!

Hello, My name is Irene Mendes. My Christmas Card called “Happy Christmas”…

This card present colors that are usually not used much at Christmas, but they are colors that I identify a lot, and so I used the paint of my image which is named: 
“Winter scan0004” . 

The paper I used was the Maja Design : "From the Vintage Autumn Basics" because I wanted the theme focuses on the Vintage ".

As you can see I love to use in my cards enough flowers to give it style, texture and embellishment . . I Hope you enjoy this card that I made thinking of all of you !!!!

 





















Thank you so much!!!!
Hugs Irene DT

Please visit Irene's blog for more details on this card here.

Challenge #22 Embossing Wet or Dry - October 27- November 7

Do you remember when you did paper rubbings as a child?  Dry embossing reminds me of those rubbings, however, now we have these awesome folders and so many techniques using the embossing folders.  What about wet embossing, oh my so many fun embossing powders, sparkly, chunky and basic.  I really hope you all show us some fun techniques using our challenge theme of Wet or Dry Embossing

Please welcome our newest Design Team Member, Sandra!

It is always so exciting to introduce a new Design Team member... please welcome Sandra.  Here is just a taste of her wonderful work using image 180 and a bit about her:



Hi!
My name is Sandra and I live in Sweden with my husband and our four children (ages 9 months, 2, 3 and 9 years)
I work as a nurse at our local hospital since 2001.

I LOVE scrapbooking since 2005. Now a days I mostly make cards and alter things.
My favorite part is to color and I´m a true ProMarker addict.
I love embellishments like lace, pearls and flowers - and I prefer a LOT of them :)
Making a CAS card is a big challenge for me *lol*
And I almost forgot - I love pink :) and like to use different pink combinations.
Besides crafting, I love music and reading books (crimes!).
I feel so excited and honored to be included in the team and I´m really looking forward to work with all these talented people :)
Hugs, Sandra
