Well guys! Here we are! I am here today to introduce the final Design Team Members. Here they all are telling you a little bit about themselves. We are now all very excited ... pop back tomorrow and I will show you a sneaky peek of the first challenge prize ... and I may even give you a teensy weensy clue about the first challenge. But for now ... without further ado ... please show some love for ...
Hello! I'm Lori Hassler, a self-described mixed media artist! I dabble in all sorts of mediums and substrates, but my favorite substrates are grungeboard, grungepaper, chipboard, and metal and my favorite mediums are inks and acrylic paints! And boy, do I love stamps! My style has been and is heavily influenced by the work of Tim Holtz and Wendy Vecchi. I love flowers, so it isn't unusual to find a flower in my work in some form. I also like to recycle whenever possible, and try to incorporate “found objects” when I feel it fits the piece. I've been involved in some sort of craft or hobby since I was a young girl. I first discovered the paper arts through scrapbooking in 1997; from there I have become involved in rubber stamping, and anything else described as “mixed media”. I reside in rural north central Illinois, USA, and am so happy and proud to be a part of this design team!

My name is Nancy Wethington and I live in St. Louis MO (USA). I can't ever remember not doing something crafty. Now into paper arts and rubber stamping of any kind, I am retired and therefore living my dream. Bill and I have been married for 38 years and have one 26 year old son. Currently, I teach classes at my local scrapbook store as well as meet with friends periodically to play with paper and ink. Looking forward to this very exciting opportunity and to creating with everyone, sharing ideas.

And finally ... a little bit about me ...
My name is Linda Elbourne. I have been crafting since forever in one form or another. My passion for stamping took over about 6 years ago. I am a Ranger girl at heart and love nothing more than trying new things and getting inky and messy ... My style is eclectic ... if that is a style :0) and I will give anything a go at least once! I am a massive fan of Lord Tim of Holtz and THE Wendy Vecchi, so this challenge blog is a perfect fit! I am extremely proud to have been asked to lead the design team here at Simon Says Stamp and Show and I am really looking forward to seeing all the contributions each week and working with Heidi and her wonderful team. Please feel free to pop by my blog and say Hi too!
