# 57 : Congratulations - Wedding / Anniversary etc. / New DT Members

Hi all, welcome to Crafting with Dragonflies. 
A big thank you for your wonderful entries in our last challenge. I loved looking at all those wonderful Shabby Chic/Vintage card. So beautiful.
It's CG's turn to pic the top three. I do not envy her that task. So check out next Saturdays post to find out who they are.

I have some great news to share. We have two new Design Team Members. I know one of these lovely ladies is fairly new to us and the other one is very well known to all of us. We are honored to have them both. Wonderful

Please make them feel welcome and check out their blogs

 Jarka EF

Congratulation goes to Jarka. You will love Jarka's style. Here is her very short and sweet bio, she is fairly new at it all and is doing just wonderfully.

I live with my family in a small village in Slovakia ( in Europe). I am a very happy person, because I like to smile, laugh and have fun, nature, books and music, and giving gifts.I have been making cards from my childhood, but the last 2 years I make have made them almost every day. It is great to relax and you can make them like you feel. I usually don't make complicated cards, but from time to time I need a challenge.  :-D


Congratulations also to Granmargaret

I am 71 and live in Sydney, Australia with my husband Tony.  I have two daughters and four granddaughters.  My granddaughters and all their friends call me Granmargaret.  I was made redundant at work at the end of January 2013 so after working for 53 years I am now retired.  
I started stamping and making cards in 1995 and started scrapbooking about 1999 and making ATCs in 2005.  I am still a cute stamper and make simple cards.  My favourite colours are purples and pinks. I started my blog in April 2012 with the help of cyber friends and started joining challenges to give me ideas for my cards and then was happy to be invited to join some design teams.  I have lots of rubber and clear stamps but use mostly digital stamps now as they are easier on my sore hands.
I am group Mum on some yahoo stamping groups
I suffer from fibromyalgia and arthritis and have eye problems so spend my days making cards, a little scrapbooking and talking to my cyber friends on the internet.  This helps take my mind off the pain. 
I have made many more cyber friends since starting my blog.
My eldest daughter Lynda and I are cancer survivors and we thank God for every day and for all our friends who pray for us.
I was happy to be invited to be on the design team for Crafting with Dragonflies and look forward to making cards for the challenges.
Best wishes

Welcome to the team girls

And now onto the rest of the Dragonfly team with their inspiration:
