Today we have the lovely and talented


Gina Fruebel

Here is a little bit about Gina

 I live in Belgium with my darling husband and a cute little dog, a West Highland White Terrier.
I was always already ‘creative’, drawing, colouring, crocheting. Actual card making started about three years ago (early 2014). At that time I was actually looking for a creative way to showcase my pictures. Photography is probably the oldest hobby I have and keep on practicing. As a result I have tons of pictures waiting for a destination. Mostly from the holidays and off course, my eye catching dog. I’ve been doing a little bit of scrapbooking, but quickly turned on to card making. I started my own blog in November 2014, and have been blogging since.  To check out my creations you can visit my blog at http://freubel69.blogspot.be

Sue Crease

Hi i'm Sue and I live here in Milton Keynes in United Kingdom.
I have been married to a wonderful understanding man for this last 30 years and we have a son who is 23.
I have been crafting in one form or another most of my life but Paper crafting for the last 20 years.
I love to scrapbook as our son is autistic and he loves to look back at photos of his family and it's so much nicer to add keepsakes to a page too. 
Card making is my passion and I am lucky to be able to sell to friends and neighbours, which in turn allows me to buy more!
I have recently taken up colouring images and I'm so happy to be part of the My Besties family of design team girls and boys.
You can find some of my designs on my blog at Paper Pleasure.

Designer of the Day Andrea Beacroft

Our Designer being featured today is
our lovely and talented 
Andrea Beacroft



Hello I am Andrea from New Zealand

 I live in a small country town on the West Coast of the South Island of New Zealand - called Hokitika, we are a small town of 4,000 people.
I have lived here in Hokitika for 50 years. I was born in Melbourne Australia where I grew up and went to school, coming to New Zealand in 1964 on a working holiday where I met my husband married in Melbourne and came to live in New Zealand.

I have 2 adult children and 4 grandchildren.
I retired from work 3 years ago from the health sector where I worked for our local Health Board for 32 years. I was in the administration area mainly reception.

Over my adult years I have done lots of different crafts, but hand embroidery just stood out for me, and over the last 10 years silk ribbon embroidery come to the fore and also in that time I purchased a computerised embroidery sewing machine and just love using my machine to decorate just about anything.


At the time of my retirement 2013 from work I started to make greeting cards and I haven't looked back. I took a class on how to colour with alcohol markers where I learnt to shade and blend colours.  I just love trying different mediums such as markers, pencils, crayon and chalks I play with them all from time to time.
I love to push my boundaries with my crafting and love to be challenged into making something new all the time..

 I love finding different projects like folded and box cards to make, and from time to  time I will adding some ribbon embroidery and machine embroidery to my cards. It's rather neat to combined the 3 most special crafts I love together.


You can check out my work on my blog here at Andrea's Work

. 
A little bit about Carolyn

I'm a Professional Woman from Illinois, married to my high school sweetheart for 46 years.  We have 2 grown children and 3 Grandchildren, who all live too far away to enjoy on a routine basis-Gosh I just hate that!  It was their births, starting 14+ years ago, that started me scrapbooking memories. My daughter would say that I am a "collector" in that I never met a scrap item that I didn't like and through the years have gathered quite an array of various " treasures" so that I'd ALWAYS have just the right thing to put on my creations
ago, that started me scrapbooking memories.  My daughter would say  And, sadly that is the reason I think my craft room sometimes looks like I could open my OWN Local SB store!
eventually found my "niche" in making cards-I see it as making little creations of Art and I'm giving you a present that's part of myself. I use this "Hobby" as a stress-reliever in the evenings after work as well as playing in my flower gardens, working in the yard, going to
craft Festivals-can you tell I work in an office?  I'm so happy to be joining this great Design Team!  Looks like a happy group of gals using wonderful Images, and a super website-Let the Fun Begin! You can visit me at Luv my Cards

Designer of the day - Sandy Palmer

In Celebrating the Birthday of Color it Create it Show it off,  We are also celebrating our fabulous Designers. So periodically throughout the month a designer will be featured on the blog so come and check out their work.

Our designer being featured today
is the lovely and talented
 Sandy Palmer.



I am married to the most wonderful husband of 35 years, who is very supportive of my crafting addiction, lol. We have 4 children,10 grandchildren, two dogs, a bird, and a miniature horse.
I was born and raised in California, but have lived in Texas going on 21 years.
I think I was born with a crayon in my hand, lol. I absolutely love to color. It's so peaceful and relaxing. I think I have been paper crafting for over 4 years now. It started with my eldest son buying me a Cricut and it went from there.
Being able to work with My Besties images is such an honor. It happens to be my most favorite images and inspires me to create the most. Being on My Bestes DT, and making such wonderful friends through crafting, life doesn't get any better than this.  You can visit my blog here: A Little Piece Of Heaven
