Ends at midnight [CDT US] 17July


Happy 4th of July, blog world! Here in the United States it's our country's Independence Day celebration--to everyone else it's 'Happy Because It's Almost The Weekend' celebration--Yipeeeeee!!! Please be safe if you go out driving around. Enjoy and enter our challenge, all crafters.

We're showcasing another of our newest Design Team members, Elisabeth:

Elisabeth lives in Germany near Cologne with her husband and they have two grown children. She is a pediatric nurse working at home and in a doctor's office. She started stamping about 20 years ago, but she says her hobby felt 'asleep like when the children were little'. About two years ago Elisabeth said,"I rummaged about and found my old stamps and then discovered Stampin' Up and their incredible, amazing products. Stamping, working with paper and scrapbooking is not a typical German hobby, so it´s very difficult for us to get all their products, but crafting is growing! And, my hobby is being creative and I love it!" Elisabeth also says, "Greetings from Germany!"

And, this is Elisabeth's beautiful card for our "Christmas in July" Challenge:

MID-POST - CHALLENGE #64 - "YOUR SENTIMENT IS THE HIGHLIGHT" & DT Favorite Winner Ch#63

We're glad you stopped by for the Mid-Post for our Challenge #64 - "Your Sentiment is the Highlight" & to see who won the Simply Create Too Design Team Favorite Winner for our last challenge.

But, first we'd like to introduce one of our newest Design Team members, Rosi:


Rosi says, "Originally from Germany (Bavaria), I have lived in France for over 30 years. My first love was painting and framing watercolors. Then in 2004, I started card making. First I embroidered, then I made a lot of 3D cards. The virus of stamping infected me only 3 years ago and now I'm definitely incurable! :-) I particularly love the Clean And Simple style, but I also appreciate decorated cards. When I do them, they are always for very cherished people. I also enjoy gardening, love to read, play tennis, and am a passionate cook. I like to surprise my guests with delicious dishes. And now, I'm happy to create with you ...."

This is Rosi's beautiful creation for Challenge #64:



AND, EVEN . . .
