Our thanks to everyone who participated in the challenge. 

It being a new month we are delighted to introduce our Guest Designers for March,.
Becca and Pat K , welcome ladies.


Although I've been crafting ever since I discovered how to attach glitter to paper, I just recently started my own blog, The Damsel of Distressed Cards. The amazing, supportive crafty community I've found on the web has been beyond inspiring!  My cards are very eclectic - I love all things vintage and distressed, but also find immense happiness when I come across a great punny stamp set. My favorite way to create cards is by layering and incorporating mixed media. No matter what aesthetic I feel like working in, almost all of my designs will be saturated in color or filled with texture.

Pat K

Hi, my name is Pat K.  Thank you so much for having me as your GD. I love making masculine cards so this is a real treat for me.   I live in a small town on Lake Ontario, Canada, am happily married with a Son & Daughter who have made me the proudest grandmother of 5.   My first venture into paper crafting was scrapbooking but I soon moved on to card making.    My love for colouring started with watercolours but when I discovered Copics I never looked back.   My style is rather eclectic….one day I love CAS and the next I want to dump everything onto a card…depending on the image or the recipient.   I’m constantly inspired by the talented artists I meet every day. Hugs, Pat K.
