*** New DT member ***
We are delighted to introduce another new DT member this month - she's a fabulous, super-creative lady .... it's Sari Aavamaki from Finland, also know in the crafting world as Granne. 
You can find Granne's blog here and here is a little bit about her: 

I'm a Finnish mother of 2 adult girls. I've been stamping since 2011. I got started when my neighbour introduced me to the world of stamping and paper crafting in real life and in blog land; that's how my blog also got it's name: Granne (=neighbour in Swedish). Usually I make cards, but do love making ATCs, Art Journals, altered items, and, and, and ... what ever seems to be fun and inspires me. Sometimes things work out nicely, sometimes not, but I have fun creating.

Welcome to the Crafts Galore Encore team, Sari - we are so happy you joined the team. We can't wait to see what you make!

Would you like to join our DT?
We still have a couple of spaces left to fill on the DT, so if you would like to join us, please add DT next to your entry name in the challenge or email Carole at cardsgaloreencore@yahoo.co.uk
