Alethea and Aunty Sue won a prize of  GDT spots  and are  joining us for 2 months - Please give them a lovely welcome as they share there awesome talent with us

My name is Alethea and I am from Sunbury, in Victoria Australia. I am a mum to two beautiful boys who share my love of crafting (and not because I forced them..LOL) I have been card making for nearly 7 years after receiving handmade cards from a friend for years. I started out with a handful of stamps, a set of textas and heaps of stickers and  now have one side of my loungeroom taken over by my crafty goodies!!! I don't know that I have a specific style when I make my cards but I think it has changed over the years! And I do have a love of buttons and rhinestones so they are generally on my cards!!! I do wish I had more time to create but night time is when I have time to myself and do what I love!!

Hello my name is Susan but everyone knows me as Aunty Sue, from the postman to the teachers of the local school and the neighbours. This came about from my nephews who visit me after school. I am in my mid 50's (ouch that hurt to say head says 20's). I am mother to 1 grown up son and 1 Shetland Sheepdog who are my world. I retired on ill health and took up Cardmaking as a hobby starting with Decoupage but soon found Stamps and later Digital Stamps. This hobby has now taken over my life and has put me in touch with many friends from all over the world. I have always liked to dabble in Crafts and have done Knitting, Cross Stitch and Dress making although many moons ago. I was so delighted to have been asked to be GDT for Crafty Sentiments as the Stamps and Digital images are just so cute and a pleasure to work with.

Here's our DT samples to help inspire you for our BLING IT ON Challenge.  As always, the girls have done some stunning work and if you have time, I'm sure they'd love a visit to their personal blogs:)
