    Hugs, Hazel xx

  8. Gorgeous cards from the DT and I really like the new look! I would love to be a GDT-member for this blog because I totally love the Marianne Design goodies, I think I use some Marianne Design goodies on almost every card I make. Every month when the new collection is for sale I have to buy something, just because the dies/stamps etc. are so nice to work with! My entry is nr. 20.
    Have a lovely day!

  9. Such beautiful DT creations! I would love to be a Guest Designer because Marianne Design products inspire me. I have admired this line for a long time, but only recently became an owner of a few treasures... and the moment they were in my hand, creativity was sparked. :o) I adore the whimsical elegance and it would be an honor (and a thrill!) to be a GDT here. :o) Thank you for the consideration and opportunity!

    Hugs and blessings!

  12. Hello Dear Ladies! First of all, I want to say how gorgeous the DT Creations are, this month again! It's a real Winter Dream to look at theses cards, really! I would be very happy to become a guest designer near your great team, because there is a very long time that I follow this challenge blog and I always find here a lot of inspiration with all the Marianne Design goodies that I buy. I think that I do not create any card without MD dies! and I very often answer questions on my blog about the MD goodies and show how to use them. The last reason why I 'd like to be a GDT here with you is that "I've make a dream".... to see one day, for example WINTER/CHRISTMAS written here in French!!! (HIVER/NOEL) Many French ladies use the MD goodies and I'd like to represent them! At least, I want to say that I'm able to write in english on my blog if necessary and to comment too. Have a nice day! For my part, I cross my fingers! HUGS Majorelle

  13. Love to see what others made! A great source of inspiration!

  14. As always, I am blown away by your creations, DT! The details are just amazing!

  15. Hallo dames, weer een leuke uitdaging van deze maand. Jullie kaarten zien er super uit, groetjes Frosien

  16. I would love to be a GDT as I love using Marianne Designs dies. I make all my cards solely to sell to raise funds for different charities and therefore funds are very limited and lots of dies are out of my price range. That was until I found Marianne Designs. They are perfect for what I want and a price we can all afford. It took me ages to find a snowflake. Lots are lovely but I wanted one where I could put a foam pad underneath. I was so pleased to see the Winter Collection 2013 was the one I'd been looking for and I have used it so much. Thank you Marianne Designs. Best wishes, Kym xxx

  17. Love Marianne's products and I love using them !the DTs creations are fab!I would love to work with all of them!

  18. I would like to join to MDD DT team because I'm keen on card making, paper crafting and scrap booking. I really like Marianne Design products and I enjoy creating cards, tags, etc. with them. The team is fab!


Thank you for taking the time to leave us a message :D
