Our Besties Design Team Members

My name is Maritza Rios. I live in the city of Maracaibo in Venezuela. I am married for 28 years, and I have a daughter.
I am a doctor, but from very young I have loved making crafts , it's something that I enjoy a lot. I started doing ceramics, then I did some oil paintings and wooden projects. Right now I make some cross stitch embroidery , traditional embroidery and ribbon embroidery . Several years ago I met the Scrap and I really fall in love with this art , it is fascinating because it allows you to create beautiful projects and combine several techniques , I love painting digis, especially digis My Besties Sherri Ann Baldy, because they have a lovely sweetness that make to want to paint all of them.
I do not have a unique style Scrap worker, I love Shabby, Vintage, Steampunk. I like them all, I love coloring.  It is my honor to belong to this wonderful team with such talented people


I am a wife to a very understanding man and mother to a delightful young man. I live in Milton Keynes in the U.K.  I love to craft and like many have dabbled in most things. I have been card making for about 18 years now and can while away the hours in my craft room quite easily only surfacing for a coffee or two. I enjoy scrapbooking and attend a crop regularly. I have enjoyed using My Bestie images for sometime after being introduced to them by my friend in the U.S. I like to play along with challenges and love nothing better than a good sketch challenge.

I am so delighted to be part of this team and look forward to the challenges to come. I hope you will come along with me to on my                                                         new journey.


Hi, my name is Sandy Palmer.
I am married to the most wonderful husband of 35 years, who is very supportive of my crafting addiction, lol. We have 4 children,10 grandchildren, two dogs, a bird, and a miniature horse.
I was born and raised in California, but have lived in Texas going on 21 years.
I think I was born with a crayon in my hand, lol. I absolutely love to color. It's so peaceful and relaxing. I think I have been paper crafting for over 4 years now. It started with my eldest son buying me a Cricut and it went from there.
Being able to work with My Besties images is such an honor. It happens to be my most favorite images and inspires me to create the most. Being on My Bestes DT, and making such wonderful friends through crafting, life doesn't get any better than this.
Hugs, and hope to see you ladies/gentlemen through the challenges!


I'm Larelyn Sartini.  I live in the small town of Galt in North Central California.  I began crafting in 2008 after retiring from teaching.  I started with scrapbooks that I made to trace the journeys my daughters' collegiate athletic careers.  Then I discovered some online card making groups and I was hooked - so many techniques, so many tools, such fun things to use!  I slowly began purchasing Copic markers when I discovered the wonders of digital stamps.  I've designed for several digital artists and love the uniqueness of each one. I taught Copic coloring for over five years at a local store.  I'm always trying to improve my craft and learn new styles and techniques.  My next challenge is to master colored pencils and try my hand at watercolors.  I am thrilled to be a designer for the Bestie's Team.  Sherri's images are a new style for me and I hope to do them justice.


Hi, I'm Thera Rolleman, 48 years old. Just under half of my life I have been married to my lovely husband Edgar. Together we received three beautiful children: our 18 year ols son Timon, out basketball player Koen who is 16 and the youngest princess is Inge who just turned 9 last week.

Ever since I can remember, my hands are filled with glue, paper, pieces of fabric, paint or ink. My grandmother introduced me to the world of knitting, my aunt taught me embroidery and crochet. My mother passed on the passion for crafts with paper to me.

After my education as a nurse, I went to the Czech Republic as a missionary with Operation Mobilisation. In addition to my work there, I gave many workshops to the local people. Such a great  experience to pass on my passion in a language that has little similarities with your own.

Slowly but surely I've been focusing more on making cards. With my curious nature, I always try to discover new techniques that I can use on my projects again. More and more I begin to discover my own style. I started off by making  CAS cards, but now use so many different  techniques and use almost everything I can lay my hands on.  It won’t be easy to find one of my cards without the use of  flowers, butterflies and bows or embellishments. Also, almost all my cards have a colored stamp or digi. I truely love the My Besties stamps of Sherri Ann Baldy. Therefore I use them a lot in all of my projects.

On a regular base I try to challenge myself. I try to experiment with backgrounds in different ways and with different materials. Last month, I was asked as a guest designer at My Besties International. I was asked to make an card for June's challenge with a theme "Steam punk".  This definately dos not fit into my comfort zone yet I saw it as a challenge and tried to make the best out of it. In the end, I truely enjoyed making the card and was pleased with the result.

In the past month I tried to set up my own blog. I still try to discover all the possibilities, but I’m getting there. Please feel free to come and visit my blog http://therascrafts.blogspot.nl You will find me on Facebook under the name Thera Rolleman-Boere https://www.facebook.com/trolleman

Making cards is a true “me-time” moment in which I can totally give myself . Besides making cards, I can sometimes lose myself in a good book, I like to sing and enjoy relaxing with a couple of friends. I also like to organize events and cook for large groups of people. Next tot his all I like to all sort of things back in our church.

A long story just to say how thrilled I a mto become part of the My Besties International Design team. I hope to be able to inspire people with my projects and look forward to a wonderful cooperation with the rest of the team.


My name is Noilone,  I live in Southern part of Sweden. I have 3 grown up boys and 3 grandkids and one crazy cat. 😊 I have always been a creative spirit.
When I was 8 I got this crazy idea to paint our house pink. I love pink. So I started to paint. But when my mom got home from work I realized that not everyone loved pink as I did. 😊 My mom wasn't too happy about it.
I like to make cards and mixed media and boxes and layouts. My latest passion is to make my own minalbum. Oh that was so funny😊
I Always loved My Besties digi stamps so I am so very proud to be a part of this design team.
