I'm Chrissy and I'm a former officer in the U.S. Air Force. My husband was also in the Air Force and often teases that I'm CINC (Commander In Chief) of the household because I keep things running and everyone takes their orders from me. He has no idea how right he is! I have three boys who attend the new Iowa Virtual Academy which means they do public school at home. Needless to say, they keep me busy. My solace in the day is my craft space and card making is how I unwind. Little did I know when my mother introduced me to making cards in high school just how big a part of my life it would become. I remember teasing her about her obsession with stamps and paper and now I'm 100x worse than she ever was. I'm a tech geek so I often times find ways to use my computer in my crafting. I'm super excited to be a part of this team and since it's my first ever design team, I'm ready to learn a TON! Can't wait to craft with you all.

Hi, I'm Nathalie from the island of Mauritius. I am a stay at home mom to a three year old little princess and one year old twin boys. I've always been attracted to arts and crafts, but paper is by far my favourite medium. I am so excited and grateful to be a part of this new adventure, let's have fun ; )

Hi! I’m Jen Mitchell from Bridgewater, Massachusetts.  By day I’m a banker busy crunching numbers and staring at my computer so it’s a big stress reliever for me to come home from work and escape into my craft room to create a card or two.  I’ve been stamping for at least ten years, but who’s counting?  And I never knew when I started this crazy card-making journey that my style would tend towards clean and simple but that’s how I evolved and here I am!  I’m thrilled to become a part of the CAS(E) This Sketch design team and I’m looking forward to creating alongside all of you each week!

Though pretty new to blogland,  I’ve been crafty in some sense  since childhood.   I must say that designing cards, and writing sentiments, has become my all-time favorite craft.  All of the friends I’ve made while blogging and visiting other blogs seem like family to me now.  I can’t imagine a day without you all!  I love to create in the kitchen, as well.  I quit my day job to attend culinary school at age 50, graduated with honors, and own a catering company called “Your Place or Mine?”  I only do small events now, as I pretty much fly solo.  Being a full-time, SAH wife to my very best friend allows me to  “play cards” most every day.  I’m thrilled to be the newbie here at CAS(E) this Sketch... hoping the creative genius that abounds here will rub off!

Hi! I'm Donna Mikasa and I was born and raised in Hawaii on the island of Oahu. I've been married for 33 years to my high school sweetheart who has supported my love of stamping for the past 15 years. We are the parents of two grown daughters, and hope to be grandparents sometime this year. When I'm not crafting, I love to visit food blogs and try out healthy recipes, or travel as time permits. I'm so excited to be a part of CAS(E) this Sketch, and I thank Jackie for this amazing opportunity to be on the team!

I'm Leigh and I work as a substitute teacher in Morden, Manitoba, Canada. My husband, Cameron, and I have been married for 17 years and together we have three children: Austin (14), Jonah (11) and Sage (almost 9). I started scrapbooking 10 years ago and ventured into stamping/card making 2.5 years ago. I love both equally-- they are truly my passion! When I'm not busy in my craft area (my happy place!), I enjoy doing taekwondo with my kids (they all have their junior black belts and I have my second degree black belt), going for bike rides or reading. I've always loved sketches (both for scrapbooking and for card making) and am super excited to be a part of the CTS design team!

Hi my name is Sam, I live with my fantastic partner Jono and my mad cat, Patch, who thinks he’s a dog. We live in the quaint, quirky and amazing ye olde City of York - UK. I guess it should come as no surprise to you that I love card making. I started crafting about six years ago when I fell in love with paper and stamps and I’m not afraid to say that it is a bit of an obsession really. I am also a bit of a photography geek and will mostly been seen with camera in hand if I'm not making cards. I am super excited to be a part of the CAS(E) this Sketch DT. I can't wait to work with such a fab group of women!

Hello, my name is Betty J. and I live in a village in Germany (Bayern). I started with the crafts in February 2012 and I became increasingly addicted to it, that’s my biggest hobby. Furthermore, I still love to read books and meet with friends. My crafting style is mainly CAS, but I can also create playful and ornate cards. I‘m thrilled to be a part of this design team and I’m looking forward to working together.

Mom to three, wife to one, and momma to one furbaby kitty “Bella”.  Loving life in the Finger Lakes region of NY-beautiful summers on the lake, amazing fall foliage, and lots of snow!   I am so looking forward to my very first DT experience and am thrilled and honored to be part of the CAS(E) this Sketch team!

Hi, my name is Hannelie Bester and I was born in South-Africa.  I lived there my whole life until 6 years ago when we moved to the United Arab Emirates (Abu Dhabi) because of a job opportunity that was offered to my husband. I started blogging soon after we moved here... hence the title of my blog!  Living so far away from my loved ones made me realized how much I love them. Card making helps me cope with being far away from home, and challenges my right brain, since I am a left brained, logical, and analytical pharmacist at heart!  My card making style is CAS graphic most of the time!

Hi! I'm Michelle from Brisbane, Australia! I share my life with my husband, my two girls (11 and 6), a dog, a budgie, a fish, and four cheeky chickens. When I'm not at work or being a taxi for my kids, I love making cards, and I love sharing them. Card making is how I take some time out from the world, giving me much needed mental relaxation while I consider colour, texture, and design.

My name is Alice Wertz and I am a happy card maker living in Northern California with my wonderful husband and two "cat children." I started making cards about seven years ago and still enjoy every minute of it! I am thrilled to be on the CTS team, as I am a fan of the simple sketches and the inspiring works from Chrissy's team. I really look forward to playing with all the sketches to come! =)
