We also have 3 Guest Designers joining us this week. Aren't their cards just amazing? Please stop by their blogs and show them a little love.

Kitty from KT Fit Kitty
Hi, I’m Kitty and it's my pleasure to be a Guest Designer at Crafting by Designs! I live in Nova Scotia, Canada, and I just turned 50 this year. I began making cards about 9 years ago, and my card-making style would be considered “cute.” My favourite card-making subject is cats, and I find my inspiration in my three beautiful kitties, Honeydew, Kiwi, and Snow-bug. It would make me so happy if you would stop by my blog for a visit: http://ktdesigns2013.blogspot.ca/. And I hope you join in the challenge here at Crafting by Designs! Wishing you a joyful day!


Aurora from The Miller's Daughter
My name is Aurora and I'm from Spain.  I started Copic colouring in the summer of 2013, and at the same time discovered the world of digital stamps. Since then I haven't stopped colouring, and making cards and other paper crafts has become my favourite way to finish the day, venting from daily routine and worries.
It's an honour for me to be guest designer today for Crafting by Design, and share this post with their great DT.
Thank you very much ;)

Marilyn from Marilyn's Cards and More
Hi, I'm Marilyn from Montreal, Quebec Canada and I've been an avid card maker for over 25 years. I also enjoy sewing, knitting, crocheting and reading, but cards have always been my passion! I am so thrilled to be a guest designer this week and to be able to share my card with you today!

Hi Everyone! Sharon here. Thanksgiving is just a couple of weeks

 This week so thrilled to welcome three
Guest Designers

Julie from Julie's Crafty Spot
I absolutely love paper crafts!! I am a scrapbooker but my favorite craft is card making. It is so much fun to pick out paper, ribbon, embellishments and sentiments to send to someone special. Both of my kids are now in college so I have much more time to craft but lots less money. I hope you like my Thanksgiving card.

Delphine from Delphine's Place
Hi! I'm Delphine, aged 39, and I'm French. I have been making cards for about 5 years and I am totally addicted to colouring. I love spending hours colouring at night, with pencils, watercolours or with my beloved Copics! I'm really honoured to be GDT today - thank you very much to the team for having me and I hope you will join us!

Lynn from My Purple House
I am a Georgia girl. I’m not married and have no children except my 7 year old Black lab Cash (As in Johnny Cash– I am from the South after all.) Market Research – Focus Groups and such - is my daytime job. But, as I am a night owl, at night I like to do something more creative. I am a person that loves to learn new crafts so I have done a lot of them from knitting , to jewelry making, to scrap booking/card making, etc… I am so excited to be a Guest Designer for Crafting by Designs!

Wow - how's that for some great inspiration!!
Remember to have fun, follow the rules. Current projects only, no back dating.
