Are you ready to meet the ladies that will help us give life to Yumi & Fumi?  Hehe, you might recognize all of them as they are in their own right AWEmazingly talented!

Bringing our images to life is a tough job.  We could not have done all of this on our own so we chose a few familiar faces to help us bring our characters to life.  Meet our hard working team.  They have made this adventure so easy for us.  We are so very excited and humbled that they are sharing this journey with us.  Make sure to visit and follow them if you don't already.  You will definitely be blown away by their creativity.  We certainly are.

Once you finish reading through check out the DT Survey page.  For fun we asked the girls to fill out a fun survey of 20 random questions.  Some of the answers were pretty funny.  You might have a lot in common with someone on our team.  Leave us a comment on this post to let us know who.  :)

Rosemary Shaner Bridges (DT Challenge Coordinator):


I'm a military brat who now resides in Goldsby, Oklahoma with my wonderful husband and sweet 5-year-old boy. I was introduced to scrapbooking by a friend in 1996, but a few years ago, I switched gears to card-making and 3-D projects. I love creating, whether it be in my craft room or in the kitchen...I love to cook! I'm so honored and blessed to be a part of this amazing team!

UPDATE:  Rosemary and her family are in the process of moving from Oklahoma to Texas.  You will see more from her in a few weeks.


 Sandie Dunne (DT, New Image Coordinator):


Hi!! My name is Sandie and I live in Southern Ireland with my husband. I left my job as a web designer in 2004 and became a SAHM to our 4 kidlets who now range in age between 6 and 19. I was a doodler in school and I loved to make silly little things with paper – especially my school books :/ I was first introduced to scrapbooking in 2006 when my daughter was born. From there it progressed to mini albums and eventually I bought my first image stamp in 2008 – the rest, as they say, is history!
My preferred colouring mediums are copic markers and distress inks but I also dabble with pencils, chalks & watercolours. I am very much a flowers and pearls girl and love to use loads of bling on my crafts. I am also a patterned paper fanatic (read hoarder!)

Eva Uyeunten (DT, Birthday Coordinator):


"Hello, I'm Eva! I've been crafting since I was a kid. I loved to make all sorts of things from paper and was always interested in learning how to make crafty things. A few years ago, I found my way into scrapbooking and then into stamping and card making which I really love!
I live in paradise, also known as Hawaii, with my hubby of many years and our 3 children. Please don't ask me to calculate how many years we've been married because I will probably get it wrong. It takes all of my brain cells to remember my kids' ages and birth dates, and to pick up someone from some place at some time.
I am super excited to be on this awesome DT with these talented ladies! I can't believe it! I can't wait to get started and create and hopefully inspire as well. Thank you so much to Renate' and Leanne for their generosity and this amazing opportunity!!"

Rachel Parys (DT):


My name is Rachel Parys, and I have been stamping/card making
for about a year and a half now, I love it!  I have been lucky to be a
SAHM for my two daughters, who are 7 & 14.  I have a great husband
who smiles and nods at my work and current purchases.
(thanks babe!)

I am addicted to paper pads and Copics. (there, I said it.)
I love seeing people's reactions when I give them something
that I made myself, it means so much more to them, and me.

I have been a long time fan of Leanne's, and couldn't be happier
to be working with her on Yumi & Fumi!  I am excited to share
and learn about fun techniques we can all use for cards, or
any other projects we can think of!

Kim Yu (DT/Sketch Illustrator):


"Hello!  My name is Kim. I am married with three kiddies.  Crafting has been part of me for as long as I remember.  I love to scrapbook, make jewelry, crochet, etc.  Not too long after my daughter was born, I discovered the wonderful world of stamping and since then, I am hooked!  I love to incorporate stamping into various projects (cards, altered items, 3D items).  My favorite coloring medium is Copics.  I occasionally mix Copics with Prismacolor pencils.  I am honored and delighted to be part of this amazing team!"

♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥

Well, what do you think?  We did good yea?  We think so.  As our company grows we will be adding new members to the team.  For now, we're going with a small group, but who knows there might be a future DT call.  :) 

♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥

Don't forget to come back tomorrow for our Mini blog hop and yes the reason we are here, the release showcase.  The team will amaze you with their creativity and if you aren't a fan, you will be...  You will be...

Take care and Mahalo for stopping by! 

Hugs,
Leanne
