Welcome to  our  Guest Designers for October

It now being a new month, we are happy to welcome two Guest Designers, who will both be spending the month of October with us. We are greatly looking forward to their contributions. 
Hi, I'm Joan from www.latenightstamping.blogspot.co.uk  I've been retired for seventeen years now and spend most of my spare time crafting or gardening. I have always crafted in one form or another, sewing, painting, calligraphy etc but in the 1980's I came across my first rubber stamps, someone  was demonstrating embossing at a little country craft show and I was hooked ! Now I have a room full of stamps and all the other necessities that go with them. I still get that "Wow" when stamping a new stamp for the first time and I hope I never lose that feeling. I started my blog in 2009 and discovered the wonderful online community of crafters out there and made some lovely online friends through it.  Thanks to cardz4guyz for having me as a guest designer, hope you like my card.

Julie Ann
makes a return visit

Hello my name is Julie-Ann mum of 4 and nanny to Charlie.I will be 49 in a few weeks, not quite sure how that happened ! Lucky to be married to my best friend Bob.  I have been crafting since my great aunty taught me to knit when i was 5 years old, since then i have tried all types of crafting and found paper crafting about 10 years ago. I am honored to be invited to join Cardz 4 Guyz Challenge as a guest designer, as i am one of the weird folk who love making cards for the men in my life. Crafty hugs Julie Ann

So let's get on with it
