Trees Challenge Winners and New Team Mate

Hello everyone!  I have an post to proclaim our winners from the Trees, Trees, Trees challenge and to introduce you to one of our new team mates, Dora.

I used to find our winner who is non other than #36 Sue from Sue's Craft Card.  Reach out to me Sue with your address and we will send you the Sr. Stampalot stamp.

The top Three are always difficult to choose and this month is no exception. We looked closely at the trees and only considered those that met the challenge rules.

So, here are our top 3 picks for The Trees, Trees, Trees challenge (in no particular order):

#41 - Helen - Helen Quilts

#33 - Shaz in Oz

#13 - Sally H - Crafty Salutations

Even though the DT Call is still running (closes Friday, Oct 5th), I thought I would introduce you to one of our new team mates, Dora.

My name is: Dora Buist- de Vries.  I have been married for 17 years and we have four childeren (a daughter at age of 16  then our second child , a son, is deceased during birth, then a daughter at age of 13 and a  son at age of 10).
We have a farm and  grow  grain, peas, onions and sugar beets. We have a three cats, two rabbits (a blue Flemisch giant, a guinea pig), and a Friesian horse.  So there is lots of life around the farm.  I work in the weekends and evenings at homecare as a nurse. 
I have been making cards for a long time, starting with 3D cards and few years ago I learned about stamps and colouring with derwent colour pencils. I have always liked to draw along with the children, or helping with decorating the school windows or decors.  A few years ago I also started to combine stamps with my own drawings and it is so much fun to do.  It is amazing that I am now joining the team of Craft a Scene. I loved making scenes for this challenge blog.  It is always a challenge to make a card that fits into the challenge and then to try and  colour it in.....its so much fun! I love to see what scenes others make with their own stamps and colouring materials.

I will be back next Sunday to announce the new team and the theme for October along with some incredible creations from the design team.
