Challenge # 49 Graduation

Our aim is to challenge, maybe educated, but most definitely we will encourage you to create cards for all the galz in your life, for your family, your friends and for those who just need a "hello" card.

Please welcome our new DT  members. 
Thanks to everyone who applied, and we hope to see you in the next DT Call.
You may need to have a relaxing drink by your side, 
as I introduce them.


Hello! I have always enjoying creating and playing with paper. I scrapbooked for many years, but began focusing on primarily cards several years ago. Cards are the perfect tableau for a small, precise piece of art that I can create and share! I love that I can make a card and send it or give it to somebody and brighten their day. Fun, bright, colorful projects make me happy. I work full-time at a college, recently finished my second master’s degree, and enjoy traveling and hanging out with my biggest fan (husband, Guy) and our two dogs, I can be found in my craft room delving elbow-deep into bright colors, paper, glue, anything sparkly or shiny, and ink. I have also done demos and taught classes at our local paper crafting store, showcasing new products and sharing techniques. I also enjoy attending scrapbooking Expos and Conventions when I can, and participate in an annual crafting girls’ weekend at a beach cottage. I am also a member of Sparkle N Sprinkle’s Design Team. I am humbled and excited to be part of the Cardz4Galz Design Team. I hope you enjoy my creations.   I am excited to see all of yours and continue learning from all of you! Have a magical day!



My name is Ina and I live in Sunny Queensland Australia.
I have been married for well over 40 years and lucky
my hubby supports my hobby as I do his - Guitars.
 I have been crafting for a several years now starting of
Scrapbooking and then got hooked on card making.
My card making has a variety of styles depending on the occasion
and who they are for. Being retired gives me plenty of time to
indulge in my craft.
I love inking up my stamps, embossing and using my dies.
  and have recently gotten hooked on mixed media (which needs practice)
and getting inky fingers.
I enjoy the friendships you develop with fellow Designers
and learn so much from their styles and likes.
I am excited to start another New Adventure at
Cardz 4 Galz.


Hi, My name is Tammy. I live in Colorado with my wonderful husband and our two fur-babies! I've always had some kind of crafty thing going on in my life. But, when I started to make cards I knew it was the perfect craft for me because I love to color and create with paper. I think the best way to describe my style would be... bold coloring with mostly "cute" images and I love my die cuts! :) I also enjoy cooking, hiking, camping and spending time with my family and friends. I'm very excited to be joining the team!
