Before I tell you about our next challenge. I would like you to please welcome the three new members to the Design Team. Firstly let me tell you a little about Babs, who has been with a few weeks.


Hi my name is Barbara but I liked to be called Babs, I have been married to my wonderful husband
for 46 years this May. I have three grown up children and 8 grandchildren and two great grandchildren who are my world. I got into card making quite a few years ago now when I was given a card making kit for my birthday now I am well and truly addicted and love to make cards every chance I get.. I am thrilled to be joining the Design Team.



I'm Aly Smedes, 34 and I live in the north of the Netherlands. My hometown Kootstertille is located in a province with its own language called Fries. Most Dutch people can not understand this. I am happily married for 13 years and mother of two daughters aged 11 and 7 years. I've been creative since I could hold scissors and glue. The real blogging and participating in challenges began in 2010. I love sweet colours and making my own backgrounds, beside making cards I practice the survival sport. We train in running and passing the course with nets, rope climbing, water passages and other heavy tasks. a fun activity in the fresh air.

I hope my DT examples will inspire you ant that I should go review many beautiful creations.

(Feb 29th moving to Alaska USA)

My name is Janis. I am a 49 year old avid crafter, blogger, reader, and love to travel. I started out as a traditional scrapbooker in the 1990's and switched over to the Project Life system in 2015. My favorite craft making projects are card making, tags, Project Life scrapbooking, 3D projects, and sometimes I even do a little crochet. My favorite craft tools are my We R Memory Keepers Punch Boards, Sizzix Big Shot, and my Silhouette Cameo. 



Ohio - USA

My name is Jennifer and I have this little 'thing' with coffee.... and ribbons....and papers.... you see I LOVE them all SO VERY MUCH! I have been married to my college sweetheart for almost 30 years and we have 3 wonderful sons, but all that guyness in the house leads me to need a room of my very own devoted just to crafting! I enjoy using all kinds of vintage trinkets and treasures on my projects, as well as little things you find around the house, so you never know what is going to appear on something I make! but there will always be a shabby touch, that is for sure! :)

I am so very happy to be part of the Cardz 4 Galz Challenge Blog Team! we are going to have a fabulous time here. come along and join the fun! :)

Wow, welcome to all of the new Design Team members.


Onto our next challenge. (At last I hear you say)
