Katrina from Katrina's Crafting Blog
Hello! My name is Katrina and I live in Somerset with my lovely hubby Will and my loony cat Millie.
After recovering from arm injuries in 2006 I was introduced to card-making and quickly got hooked. I love stamping as there are so many different techniques you can try. My favourite (when I can manage it) is colouring in - it's very relaxing :)  I run a local card-making club which meets once a month and I am lucky enough to be part of the Lili of The Valley Design Collective
.

Kerys from Scrappin' N' Happy
 Hi! My name is Kerys Sharrock. I moved to Utah, USA from England in June 2010 and I LOVE IT!! I discovered papercrafting and became obsessed with scrapbooking for a while. I am now obsessed with card making. I just loving coloring digital images with my prismacolor pencils and using all these different sketches and themes for inspiration :)

Ok, now it's your turn - let's see those RED projects!  You can enter
up to 3 projects in this challenge by using the link below.  
This challenge will run until January 19 - have fun!
