Guest Designer - NanaConnie

Hello everyone, today our wonderful Guest Designer is NanaConnie








I'm retired and loving it.  I live close to my youngest daughter and her family (including 3 grandchildren) but have kids, grandkids, and great-grands who live out of state.  That means I don't get to see them nearly as often as I'd like.  I've been crafting in one form or another since I was old enough to hold scissors but have slowly moved into paper crafts almost exclusively.  I began blogging early in 2011 and I post nearly every day.  I've served on several Design Teams and am always thrilled when I get to be a Guest Designer.  I'm excited that Zowie and the team invited me to be a Guest Designer at Arty Divas for this challenge.  :-D  NanaConnie 




I used LeAnn's image "Katy," all done in greens appropriate for either spring or St. Patrick's Day.  
Colored with ProMarkers and gel pen; cut with a Spellbinders framing die.  Paper strip is a scrap from a Recollections pad and the ribbon came from my local scrap booking shop, no brand known.  Bow was hand tied from another scrap.



Thank you so much to NanaConnie for sharing her beautiful creation. Please do check out NanaConnie's Blog

Guest Designer - Linda Mc Enery

Hello everyone, today our wonderful Guest Designer is Linda Mc Enery







I am 47 years old, married to my soulmate, with 3 grown, married children.  I’ve always loved crafting of all kinds, but started carding in 2009, because finding ‘just the right card' for loved ones was really important to me, and I wasn’t happy with what I found on the shelves.  I am currently on 7 Design Teams and spend a LOT of my time crafting!  I love to add a personalised touch to my cards, so I enjoy knowing as much as I can about the recipient. 

If you’d like to pop in for a visit, you can find me here: Linda's Creations





I took some time to consider what I enjoy most about this art we love, called card-making.  I whittled it down to 3 main aspects: A light 'shabby-chic' look; colouring, and flowers as embellishments.  

For this card I used an image from Sweet Escape Digis, called Winter Girl, and coloured her with markers, then cut her out with a blade.  I decided to oversize her on the card, to be able to do some detailed colouring.  She's been mounted onto the background with puffy pads.

My papers are from the Stamperia House of Roses paper pack.  I've distressed the edges.  I've added 3 plastic swirls by Anna Belle, and KaiserCraft pearls.  My flowers are all Prima.











Thank you so much to Linda for sharing her beautiful creation. Please do check out Linda's Blog
