Amazing step card by Guest Designer Liz

 This weeks Guest Designer is.....

Liz from Lizland

Here's a little about Liz

Hi, I’m Liz and turned 29 for the first time this year. I am Norwegian, and after three years in London I am now back in Norway. I went back to University last year and in a couple of weeks I am starting on my Master’s Degree in political science. I also work part time in health care. Hopefully I will still have time to craft!
Last year, in August, I had a random impulse to try to create cards and bought my first copics and first few tools. Since then the collection of pens, tools and paper has grown massively and I am having such great fun making cards! Prior to said impulse, my only crafting experience was colouring as a child. This blog was primarily made as a way for me to track my progress and easily have access to photos of what I have made.
Before I made any cards I did a little cross-stitching, only a few patterns, and some knitting (primarily hats!). Apart from crafting I love photography and web design.

Liz created a 2nd wonderful card for us!

Our new Design Team line up

Hi guys,
It's that time of year when I get to announce our new Design Team! It was such as hard decision as we had sooooooooooo many entries. I am super excited to introduce you to our newest members............

Bev - Designer
I am Beverly Cole, but everyone calls me Bev. I am a transplant from Connecticut to Florida, via upstate New York. That is where I met my husband, George. We have been married for a whole 5 years now. I have 3 daughters and four grandchildren up north...and one on the way! I miss them all terribly! George makes sure I visit when I can.
I am self-employed as a gardener. I only work outside when it's early...and cooler, so I have afternoons to do what I love most...paper crafting! George is very supportive and loves to peek at each project as I create it. He is my biggest fan!
I have been artistic all of my life. I did drawing, silkscreening, woodcut printing and oil painting early on, and then took several private classes in PA, NJ and TN, learning about watercolors and plein aire painting. It all translates into paper crafting very well.
I was a CTMH consultant for a few years, and also designed stamps for H&M Stamp Co. I love to teach, and I love to LEARN.
I hope you are inspired by my work, as you use our images to make your own magic!

Carol - Designer
Hi, my name is Carol (AKA Caz) and I live in the UK, but spend a lot of time working abroad with my job. I have a very understanding partner who knows how much crafting means to me as it helps me de-stress after working long hours with my job. I miss him very much when I am away, so its always nice when I am at home and I really enjoy the weekends, even if it means shopping for craft items, clothes, shoes, bags and anything else that takes my fancy. I am so excited to be joining the design team at Digital Delights.
I started crafting in 2010 and really enjoy it. I love anything to do with art and originally studied it at collage before I embarked on my degree in business studies. I am always at my PC, or iPad either blogging, sketching in graphic programs or just searching the net looking at different creations.
I love all things pink and I have to try and stop myself from making pink cards all the time. I have a room which has been converted into a craft room which is jam packed full and always needs tidying. I sell all of my cards to raise money for charity and have a number of outlets that sell them for me. I hope you will find inspiration from my projects.

Greetings from the Great White North! My name is Tammy and although originally from Ontario Canada, I have made my home in Calgary Alberta Canada for several years. I am a married WAHM to a lovely three year old boy named Riley and we also have two pound puppies, a pug named Pickles and a bijon named Tonka. I have been a scrapbooker and cardmaker for a few years now and I find that it is my mommy relaxing time. I just love to create. I don't have a particular style and a lot of times that I am inspired by blogs that I visit magazines/books, or just a particular embellishment or paper that I come across. I am very excited to be on the Digital Delights DT using Wendy's fabulous images and I look forward to sharing my projects with you. Feel free to stop by my blog  Creatively Me and leave me a comment so I can come and visit you as well!

Ciska - Designer
Hello everyone, my name is Ciska Reilly. I am 34 years old; I live in the
south of the Netherlands, together with my husband and several fish. I
started paper crafting in 2010 because I just wanted something to do after
work that was both creative and productive. I was literally hooked from
the start. In no time at all, I had a whole room full of crafty goodies,
I'm sure you know how that goes! I have a special weakness for pretty
designer paper (especially glittered or double-sided), the one thing I can
never resist buying. I am very exited to be a member of the Delightful
Challenges DT,it will be a lot of fun I reckon! I can't wait to see what
kind of challenges there are in store :)

Judith - Designer
Hi my name is Judith, I’m married to my childhood sweetheart Dean and on the coast in the north east of England.  I have 3 children Alison (28)  ,Matthew (24)  and Thomas (20), I’m also Grandma to Alison’s gorgeous baby boy Jacob born in December 2011.  I am owned  by a loopy yellow Labrador called Glenn who walks me every day and now have only one cat my beloved Barney, a British shorthair who was the very first kitten  that I bred when I used to breed cats several years ago -he is now 17 years old . I work part time as a government employee and have a busy home life.  My youngest son Tom is physically disabled by cerebral palsy and I support him through his university work acting as scribe and reader for his course work.  I have been making cards for around 6 years now and spend all my spare time colouring, cutting and sticking – at least that’s the way my husband sees it!  My other passion is spending as much time as I can in our holiday home in Florida (near to Disney naturally!), we have had it for 7 years and it is adapted for our son which makes holidays so much easier, I run a website and rent the house to other disabled people for holidays - so there’s something else that keeps me busy……!  I’m just thrilled to bits to be part of such a talented design team.
