"Hostess Monday" with Sassy Raggedy

Hi everyone, it's "Sassy Raggedy" here and what a honor it is to be your
Hostess today....

I am sharing a card with you that I saw another very creative person make
and decided I would give it a try.  It is made using some one inch scrapes
and the little squares make up my background papers. 

I decided to use the image "Springtime Lara" which is one of my very 
favorites. The sentiment is from the "Get Well Sentiments Set". 

Such an easy card to make, I just cut the small squares with a one inch punch
and glued onto my card. The image was colored with Copics and as you can
tell there was not any embellishments except the bow.

Larelyn - Senior Design team coordinator Team 2
Happy Crafting, everyone. I'm Larelyn, the senior citizen of this wonderful design team. I began papercrafting after I retired. I was a teacher, curriculum and instruction coach, and literacy consultant for 37 years. I loved every minute of it, but now I'm loving this new direction my interests have taken me. I purchased a Cricut in 2008 so that I could make albums to commemorate my daughters' collegiate sport and academic careers. I loved doing those albums, but after spending time on the messageboards, I discovered the amazing world of cardmaking. The guest bedroom quickly became a craft room and the true journey began. When I began blogging last year, I was introduced to so many wonderful designers and began exploring new techniques to add to my repertoire. I'm the type of person who wants all the tools, all the supplies, all the papers! I really just want it all. My poor, yet supportive husband thinks I'm having an affair with the UPS driver! In wanting it all, I found Copic markers and, then, digital images. I guess it all goes back to being a kindergarten teacher, I love to color.
When I first began papercrafting I joined the Cricut Card Fairies. We've sent cards to hundreds of people over the last 2 years, trying to bring joy, comfort, and encouragement into the lives of others. It's a wonderful group of crafters and I'm still very involved. I believe it gives added purpose to the joy I feel as a papercrafter.
I am so excited to be a part of Delightful Challenges. I truly believe that entering challenges and striving to become a design team member pushes you to become a more skilled crafter and helps you find your personal style. My style, although I experiment with different ideas and techniques, is quite straightforward. I love clean llines and finding the perfect papers to accentuate my design. I love adding dimension - more through layering papers than adding embellishments - but I do love ribbon and a little bling here and there.

Susan - Senior Designer
Hi my name is Susan Flynn I have recently retired and live in Blackpool England with my husband.  I have two children and one gorgeous grandson.  Now that I have retired I am able to indulge my love of crafts and start to use some of the stash that I have collected whilst I was working.  Actually that was my intention but it is really difficult to use stash, much easier to buy more stash!!  I love card making and particular stamping and have just discovered the freedom that digital stamps can give plus you don’t have to wait for the postman to deliver them!!

Joann - Senior Designer 
I have been married for 32 years and have two wonderful sons ages 28 and 26. I have loved crafting all my life and while living in Denver I owned my own boutique store called "Ragg-A-Muffins", where I hand painted furniture and various tin metal items. I also sewed and made all kinds of "Raggedy Ann's and Andy's". My new love now is card making which I found a year ago and fell in love with. joann aka sassy raggedy.

 Nick -  Senior Designer
My name is Helene Siermans. I am 37 years old. I live in a little village called Askeby in Sweden with my husband and my two children. They are the main reason I scrap. I love to scrap the fun and everyday moments as my children grow and change. I also love to scrap about travel, nature, animals and everyday things (like dishwashers, yes they are the best!). I do a lot of different type of paper crafting as cards, mini albums and alter items. I got a really bad paper fetish and can´t help to buy some as soon as I see something that I like. I also got a pretty bad coffee addiction, lol. Love to sit by the computer looking through my blog list with a coffee beside me…
I have been paper crafting for about 7 years but has always enjoyed to create since I was a child. Tried a lot of different things like cross stitches, knitting, painting, doll making, sewing but paper crafting is something that got me real hooked!!! Now I can´t vision a life without it. I have made some new great friends through different design teams and challenge blogs. I am now looking forward to make some new friends here at Digital Delight.

At the moment I teach a year 2 in the Swedish Primary school. I love it!  I also like to be outside in my garden, run in the forest and read books.

Shell - Designer
Hi, my name is Shell (shellshearer in blogland) I am a happily married mom of two beautiful teenage daughters, a 10 year old greyhound, a 4 year old leopard gecko & a 1 year old skunk!

I started crafting 20 + years ago, I started with cross stitch. I then progressed to card making through it. Just doing decoupage to begin with. But when the phenomenon that is digi images started I was hooked & invested so much time into learning to colour. I wouldn't say I'm an expert by a long shot but I do love it, its so relaxing! I have lots of different colouring mediums & love them all. I prefer cute & cuddly images to work with, but will always give anything a try.

I want to say a huge thank you to Wendy for having me back on Digital Delights DT, I just love her images & had really missed working with. I have seen so many new ones that I just can't wait to colour.

Hugs Shell xx

Naz - Designer
Hello, my name is Naz. 

I live in Melbourne, Australia with my husband and 4 year old son. My husband is awesome, my son makes my heart melt and I adore crafting and making cards.
I’m told I’m loud, that I am addicted to coffee, selfies and Facebook and that eBay packages get me way more excited than is healthy. 
I go belly dancing for fun and manage an office during the day.
I have made some wonderful friends since I started crafting and love meeting new people with mutual interests so I’m really excited to be part of Digital Delight.
Luv Naz

Judith - Designer

Hi, My name is Judith Hall – and I love to craft!  I have crafted all my life anything and everything – knitting, sewing, crochet, papercraft anything - and I love to design.  Since jumping at the chance of an early retirement last year I have more time to spend on me things and I’m loving it.  My other loves are my lovely family, my dog, taking long walks and travelling as much as I possibly can. I also spend far too much time online where I can spend hours doing absolutely nothing! I’m so happy to have the opportunity to work with the lovely Digital Delights Design team again, after a break of a couple of years I’m back to do it all again.
