Challenge #167

Hello again everyone and Happy Monday to you all from Pauline.

I have spent most of my life living in the country and love everything to do with nature, so 'Inspired by Nature' was the obvious choice for my challenge theme.  As you will see from the fabulous DT inspiration the options for this challenge are endless.  You could choose from animals, birds, flowers, country scenes, gardens - anything you like really as long as it has something to do with nature.  I can't wait to see what you create.

Julie of Julie's Crafty Creations

I am 47 with a hubby and three children. I got into cardmaking about 10 years ago and love seeing so much inspiration on peoples blogs and learning so many new techniques.

Susan from Crafting Suzie

Hi I'm Sue, married with two grown up lads and four grandsons and a granddaughter New to blogging so will need some help now an again please. I am now on the DT for Crafty Catz ... Beecrafty ... a cardmaker for CUP and on DT for Hayley West for Serif

Wynn of Sunshine Cards and Crafts

I have lived in Cyprus for many years and thoroughly enjoy the relaxed way of life. I have had an interest in all things crafty but didn't start card making until I arrived here in Cyprus where I found I had more time to be creative.

I currently, along with another ex pat, run a Card and Papercraft Group here in Paphos. So if you're ever out here holidaying don't forget us. You'll be able to get your 'crafty fix' at our very friendly group. We do find it difficult to get crafty goodies here but it's great fun trying!!  

I am also involved with a charity. Paphos Ex Pats Kidney Association. We raise money for the Dialysis unit at the General Hospital. We are currently trying to raise money for another Dialysis Machine. The cost will be €25,000  so a lot of fund raising going on. So anyone with new ideas please contact me.

 My life here is very full but I miss my family. I keep in touch with them via texts and the internet of course. I have two children and four delightful grandchildren.

Our Guest Designer for October is Nana Connie from Grammy's Attic
Central California, United States
I'm a proud Nana of 6 plus Great-Nana to two. I'm a child of God, lover of people, and hoping to actually retire soon. I craft because I love working with my hands, and creating things both frivolous and practical.

October Guest Designer - Nana Connie

Have fun!
