This month we are sad to say goodbye to three of our DT members: Claudia Martins, Tracey Mowbray and Susan Moffatt. 
Thank you ladies for all your hard work and the most beautiful DT projects. We shall miss you all as you embark on new and exciting adventures.
We wish you the very best for the future.
We do have new DT to introduce.
Firstly, we have
Koyel Saha Chattergee
I am Koyel Saha Chatterjee, a teacher (by profession) from Kolkata, India. I was attracted to the creative world from my childhood, but due to lack of opportunities I was unable to fulfil my dream to dive into the colourful art world. My life was going as usual, but then in 2017 I found out about mixed media art from social media. I got highly inspired by the art pages of Marta Lapkowska and Di Gargling. After that I decided to take a few online classes to enrich myself. This is how my art journey started and it's still going. As people say there is no limit of learning new things ... I am still in the process of learning. I participate in many blog challenges. Sometimes I win, sometimes I fail. Failure gives me new energy and enthusiasm to work hard for my upcoming projects.

Next we have  
Helen Nile
I have been a card maker for many years and love using stamps, digi stamps and dies. My favourite products are my Promarkers and patterned papers - I have way more than I will ever be able to use! I work full time as an Activities Coordinator in a care home and crafting is my relaxation as well as a great opportunity to meet lots of people.

And thirdly, we have 
Jerlann Sitton
Crazy Goat Lady and Craft Junkie? That's me in a nut shell! You can either find me in the barn with my Pygora goats or in my studio (rarely, will you find me in the kitchen). I love all things creative. First, I found fabric, then yarn, then thread, then paper and now I have them ALL and I want to share with you. I hope my pieces bring you joy and a smile. 
Till next time, 

We also have the wonderful Robin Francini joining us next month.

Thank you ladies for joining the Crafts Galore Encore Design Team. We hope you enjoy your stay.


So, back to this month's challenge.
Digi Doodle Studios is offering 3 digi stamps to our lucky random winner.
