February Rudolph Days Challenge and Design Team B Introductions

Finally it is February and time for me to introduce the next four  members of the Rudolph Days Challenge Design Team. Last month you met the four members of Team A and this month I am pleased to share  the four ladies who comprise Team B.

Liz Cavill at Crafty Sunflower Blog

"Hi, I'm Liz and I live in the west of England with my hubby.  I've been crafting for as long as I can remember and I've been making cards for probably over 15 year now.  I love using dies and embossing folders and my favourite style is CAS.  I occasionally go out of my comfort zone and get really inking! 

I started my blog in 2012 but it wasn't until a couple of years later that I discovered that there is a crafty blogging community out there and lots of cardmaking challenges to enter. I'm thrilled to be part of the Rudolph Days DT this year and look forward to seeing all your beautiful creations." 



Eemeli at Eemeli's Home Blog

Hello! My name is Eemeli and I am a telecommunications engineer from Finland. For years I have spent my days mainly with just guys and my mind works 100% like an engineer. As you can imagine, my design style is therefore more or less CAS. Straight lines and mathematically balanced overall, with no girly decorations or a lot of fluffy embellishments is what I like. 

I have been crafting my whole life. I started making Christmas cards as a young girl (back in the 80's), and have now been blogging around 5 years. Crafting with a student budget has been definitely a challenge but with a little bit of imagination, anything is possible. I am also very keen on sports and so in wintertime you'd probably find me on my alpine skis during weekends and summer is all about playing golf.










Valerija at Moje Veselge Blog

My name is Valerija. I am 36 years old. I live in Slovenia, is a small European country. I am a mother of two wonderful daughters (Leja is 8 and Nives is 7 years old.
I started blogging in January 2014, but I have been making cards much longer than that.

If you are interested, you can find more on my blog at http://moje-veselje.blogspot.si/



Kathleen at Handmade By Kath Blog

I've always enjoyed crafting and started knitting and sewing clothes for my dolls when I was young. Since then, I've also done crewel and cross stitch embroidery, woodwork, flower arranging, cake decorating and sugarcraft, as well as tried a few other things along the way!

A few years ago, my husband gave me a gift voucher for my birthday so I could attend a local cardmaking class. He always jokes that it's been the most expensive birthday present he has ever given me! I started my blog Handmade by Kath to get feedback on projects for my Certificate in Papercrafts and now use it for entering blog challenges. My favourite style is CAS, although I enjoy trying different styles and techniques to get out of my control zone!



I hope you will welcome these four new design team members. They have made such lovely cards for our shared inspiration!

Our prize this month is this Memory Box Holly Leaf Border Die.

The Rudolph Days Challenge rules are posted in my header above. You can enter your Christmas Card or Christmas project at Mr Linky below and good luck in the prize draw.
