Intro to my Dream Team: Linda and Jennie and an Announcement

Before the introductions, I just want to let you know about the new NinaB Designs Dream Team hop! It's this weekend, so mark your calendars! There will be prizes, a challenge (something new!) and lots of inspiration from the best team I know :). I hope you can join us!
I am pleased to introduce to you two more designers who were kind enough to agree to be part of my very first Dream Team. These two are among my closest friends in the paper crafting industry. We have shared so much more than our love for papercrafting. We share our love for Christ and a devotion to family. They are my counselors, prayer warriors and altogether true friends. So, when I decided to put together a team, I knew I would have to ask, even beg, them to be in it. I'm so glad I didn't have to do the latter :). We designed together for other companies (most notably, Layers of Color!) and I just love them both to death! And their styles are a great complement to the rest of the team.

Linda Lucas - If I ever feel sad or disappointed, I just check out what Linda's up to on FB. She always brings a smile to my face. She has such a gift of encouragement and her joy is so contagious. She is also one of the most prolific paper crafters I know!

New Zealand is my homeland but Australia is my home and I love them both. I am blessed to be a stay at home Mum who loves her 3 teenagers and husband ‘to the moon and back’ and enjoy creating an environment where we can all feel loved and live to our full potential. I have many creative interests, but have been ‘overtaken’ with my passion for paper. For four years now I have taken this hobby from an addiction to an obsession and am not looking for a cure anytime soon. I love to combine my passion for paper with my faith, which is an integral part of who I am. I feel that my handmade cards are something not be discarded but to be re-read when reflecting or when I feel the need. I hope that you are inspired in some way by what I create and share from the heart.

I am currently a Spellblogger for the Spellbinders Paper Arts Blog, Stampin’ Sisters in Christ Challenge and now part of NinaB Designs Dream Team and love working with this amazing Team – thank you Nina for the opportunity – fasten your seat belts and the fun has begun…{{{hugs}}}

Linda's style is easy to spot with its vintage feel and her attention to detail. Here's a sample of her work. Check out her post for more info on this gorgeous card using The Craft's Meow stamps.

Jennie Harper - Jennie and I way go back and am thankful that God caused our paths to cross. She and I are both involved in full time ministry, so she understands the challenges I face. Because I know she loves Christ and His Word, I can go to her for advice about anything.We were able to room together last year at CHA and she's even sweeter in person.

Hi, my name is Jennie Harper and I live in North Carolina with my husband Mike and our three precious children, Virginia 15, Dean 12, and Jeb 4.I was first introduced to stamping 12 years ago and since 2005 have applied myself to learning new techniques, styles and found a love for creating cards to encourage others. I am currently on the CPS Design Team and am blessed to have had some of my work published in CardMaker, Papercrafts, Just Cards and Scrap & Stamp Arts magazines. Besides paper crafting, I also enjoy reading, cooking/baking, hiking and spending time with my family.

I would like to thank Nina for inviting me to join this very creative and talented team. I am truly blessed to be working with NinaB Designs.

Jennie's style is somewhat like mine: a little bit of shabby and a tad of CAS. Here's one card that showcases her style and the post where it's from. It is sew lovely indeed!
