Introducing new members of the Design Team

First of all, we would all like to wish you

A Happy Christmas

If you are here to join in the December challenge please either scroll down or click here.

I am so pleased to introduce six new members of the team who will be sharing their crafting with us for at least the first six months of 2015. I am very happy as well that five of our present team have agreed to stay on for another six months - Heather, Helen, Renate, Rocky and Suze. We are very sad that we are saying a temporary farewell to Rose - we hope she will be able to come and join us again in the future. Thank you, Rose, for your friendship, loyalty and beautiful crafting - you will be missed.

So here are our new members:

My name is Brenda and I live in Novi, Michigan, although I'm originally from Durham in England. I've lived in the USA for just over 20 years now. I'm happily married to Andrew, we had our Silver Anniversary in May of 2014. I'm employed in the Engineering IT section of the worlds second largest car manufacturer at their Research & Development headquarters in Ann Arbor, Michigan. It's very busy and often very stressful so I craft as a way of creating beautiful things but also as stress relief after work! I love to make cards, especially Christmas cards and I love to knit too, I'm completely addicted to knitting socks for some reason!! Outside of crafting I love genealogy, music, camping, kayaking, mountain biking, car racing, driving about in our two old British cars and traveling. We tend to get long, snowy Winter's here but we embraced that too and now love to downhill and cross county ski. I'm very happy to be part of Hazel's team and look forward to working with you all.

I work part-time in a well known chemist, which I've done for 22 years (I'm 42 now so it's been my only real job). I'm married to Rich, and we have two great kids, one of each, aged 8 and 14. We have one cat, aged 16, and one pup , aged 7 months. I make cards for pure enjoyment for family and friends. I've been making them for about eight years now. I don't really stick to one theme as I like trying all sorts, but if I had to pick a favourite, it would be colouring Mo Manning stamps, and making easel cards. I'm lucky enough to have my own little craft room so I can go and tuck myself away whenever time allows.

I'm Lisbeth, born on May 24, 1970 and have been married to Dirk 19j together we have 2 children.Hanne of 15j and 14j of Koen. We live in the beautiful province of Antwerp (Belgium) in the heart of the Kempen (Malle). With my daughter, I am very busy with crafts ex. card making, but also crafts.

We have one dog family together .If we also like hiking. I started with 3D maps, but the last time I actually scrap only. Christmas cards especially cherish most.

I was hit by the crafting bug about 10 years ago when I became ill, when I was eventually retired early from work, craft became a lifeline for me. I started off my craft life with Decoupage but soon found a deep love for rubber stamping which expanded to include digi images, I have amassed a great number of both. I love to colour and design cards for family, friends and to share with other crafters by way of Blogging, Facebook and Twitter. I have had great honour and pleasure of serving on many challenge blogs over the years as a DT, I have found the experience has added to my life in crafting.

I have been into craft the whole of my life knitting sewing, embroidery and cutting pictures out of magazines to stick in my"Scrape" Book as I called it when I started school. My one regret was
that however hard I tried I could not draw, but this frustration was eventually solved when I found the world of stamps. I am also very lucky to have a very good friend who has a very large craft shop here
in Tasmania. I do make the odd srapbooking page but mainly now a days I prefer to make cards.

Hi, my name is Pauline and I live in Hampshire with my wonderful husband and two gorgeous sons. One year my husband gave me a card making book for Christmas and my obsession was born. I started my blog in 2011 to share my cards and enter challenges, I have made lots of wonderful friends all over the world and joined numerous design teams. I am really excited to be joining Hazel's Christmas Challenge Extra team.

I feel so blessed to be joined by so many talented and creative ladies.
