Some Exciting News!

Wow, Challenge #21 this week for Merry Monday, which hopefully means you have at least 20 cards made for next Christmas! Over the past 5 months, I have enjoyed viewing your beautiful Christmas cards! I knew I wanted to add a couple more designers to the team. Bonnie Klass and Narelle Farrugia are both good stamping friends and I am so thrilled they have agreed to join me for the next three months. They will be with me for June, July and August. I asked them to share a bit about themselves, here is what they had to say!

Hey everyone, my name's Narelle and I live in Melbourne, Australia.  I'm married with 2 boys and I love to create every chance I can run away to my craft cave - this is in between working full time and running kids to football training. I fell in to attending a Stampin' Up! workshop over 3 years ago and it didn't take long before I was caught by the stamping bug, joined up as a demonstrator and haven't looked back! I was thrilled when Lesley asked me to join the Merry Monday Design Team for the next three months and can't wait to see what you all create.

Hi. I'm Bonnie Klass, an avid stamper living in the triangle area of North Carolina.  My husband and I retired a few years ago and spend our days taking care of two grandsons age 4 and not quite 1.  They keep us busy.  Whenever I have a few minutes, I escape to my stamp room.  I have several groups of ladies that I stamp with on a regular basis as well as some wonderful online stamping friends.  Stampers are the best people!  I am so excited to be on the design team for Merry Monday.  It's one of my favorite challenges and to be included with these talented ladies on the team is a real honor and treat.

Thank you ladies and welcome to the team! They are actually joining in our challenge on Monday, which will be our last week with the lovely Colleen Dietrich!! Where has the month of May gone?!!

    Can't believe my month is almost up! I had fun participating as a guest designer...thank you SO much for having me.

  2. What wonderful team additions! One day I'll find the time to join in on this challenge. It is always so great (and I LOVE Christmas cards). I know these ladies will make some inspiring projects!

Thank you for stopping by! I appreciate the time you took to leave me a little stamping love!!
Lesley :)
