Farewell to Veana and Welcome to Lisa!

Hi friends! We have some sad news and some good news to share with you this morning. Sad news first - our teammate Veana is stepping down from the team at end of this month, and we would like to wish her a very fond farewell. We've thoroughly enjoyed having you on the team, Veana, and hope to continue seeing you around blogland! Thank you very much for all your wonderful projects, and we're all sending out big hugs to you!

Now for the good news - please join us in welcoming Lisa to our design team! Her blog is
 This Sweet Madness and we know you're going to love what you see! Lisa will begin creating with us on November 1st!

Without further ado, here's Lisa...

Hi, I’m Lisa and I’ve lived outside of Detroit, Michigan all my life.  I’m an 80s music lover, a 90s tv addict and a proud Twihard.  I’ve actually been making cards over thirty years, I got started when my mom brought home some Hero Arts stamps and inks from a party. My love for crafting has only grown over the years, and I try to do something crafty every day.  I like to say that making cards is my job, but in actuality I babysit my niece most days and it’s the most rewarding, exhausting and amazing job I’ve had.  When she’s napping, I work on my cards, many of which I donate to our deployed service members.  I'm so excited to be joining the team!


Welcome aboard, Lisa! We're looking forward to mixing it up with you!

Hugs,
Leslie & the DT
