Challenge 34 - Vintage/Shabby Chic

Yay... it's Friday and nearly the weekend :-) Before I tell you about this weeks challenge I would like to say a HUGE thank you to Crystal, Emma and Louise for all the beautiful creations they shared with us during their guest term. We really loved having you :-)

So that means it's now time to introduce you to three more talented crafty ladies :-)

Hi, my name is Mariska, with my husband and two sons (6 and 8 years old) I live on a dairy farm in the Netherlands. Besides being mother and wife I work as an executive secretary three days a week. I am addicted to stamps, paper, ribbons, buttons and of course to my Copic markers! I am very excited to be a guest designer for Wags n Whiskers and until the end of this year I hope to inspire you with my creations.

This is Barbara with a big “Howdy” from Texas! I've been into arts and crafts since I could run with scissors and have been making cards for over eight years. I'm a night owl and make most of my cards after everyone goes to bed. As for the rest of the day, like most of us, I'm a headless chicken! I live by the motto “A stamp a day keeps the stress away” and I look forward to creating along side this amazing team! Take a gander at my personal blog at and "Ya’ll come back now!"

Hi, My name is Carolina. I am 30 years old and I live in Denmark with my husband and our 3 children. Laura (9), Mikkel (7) and Astrid (4). I have always loved crafting and for about 7 years ago i started cardmaking with 3d decoupage sheets. 2 years ago i started with stamped images and I love it. I work at night in an institution for children with autism, and i always bring my copics and some stamped images, then I can do a little colouring in the quiet hours. I am looking forward to be guest in Wags´n whiskers great team.
