Please welcome our newest Design Team Member, Marion!

Hello everyone,

Since I am new to the team, I would like to introduce myself.
Some of you may know me already, but for those who do not know who I am, just a quick something about me.
I am 48 years old and live in the Netherlands,
I am still happily married to Ruud and our two lovely black cats make our family complete.
Our cats are two sisters called Moppie and Droppie.
I am into card crafting a lot of  years now, started with 3D pics and in the end colouring stamps.
I love to colour, it is so relaxing.
I always (hand)sew the paper edges of my cards and projects and usually there is always a cat somewhere present in my creation, these are my trademarks.
I love soft pastel colours and often use soft pastels.
Besides the card/project making I love to do ceramic painting and crochet.
I love to try different colouring mediums when my purse allows me too :).

And here is my introduction card:

Lots of hugs,

Welcome our newest Design Team Member, Debs

The My Besties Design Team would like to welcome, Debs to our team!

Here is a bit about Debs:

I have been crafting for more than 15 years.  It is my passion and rarely does an opportunity come up that makes us smile every day.  A simple joy. That for me was being accepted on the My Bestie DT.  I am thrilled. 

Here is a beautiful card made by Debs as her intro into our Design Team:

The colours are bright, and I wanted to use flowers and bees to showcase Sherri's beautiful image and to reflect my happiness.  I have drawn a wall for her to sit on.  I have used various dies but look forward to using more of those created specifically by Sherri to accent her beautiful range.

I look forward to seeing more of your beautiful cards.

Thank you Debs.
