Delicious Doodles Challenge DT call

Hi everyone..

I've seen that Delicious Doodles are doing a DT call..
Im a big fan of her designs so have decided to try my luck.

Here is a bit about myself..

My name is Marleen. Ive been crafting ever since my eldest baby was born, 9 years ago. I took up card making as some "me-time" and it has just grown from there.

 Im a stay-at-home mum to my 3 babies. Emma 9, Michael 7 & Abbie 2. Im married to my best friend and biggest fan, Kevin. I come from Denmark, but we live in the Rural Donegal in Ireland.

I do cardmaking as well as scrapbooking. Im also lucky to have been offered to do card demonstrations in my local craft shop. I do 4-5 demo's in the year working with all the new products in the shop.

I am lucky to have places on several design team. For former DT's please see badges at the side of my blog.

Current DT's.

I love what i do. Crafting for me is not only a hobby, it is slowly turning into a new career. In the future, when my babies are a bit older, I want to set of my own classes and a group for local craftes. 
Im applying for this DT, simply as I love the designs. The style is very different from my other DT's and it will help push me to into another direction, hopefully making me a better crafter.

Here is the 3 projects Ive chosen to show. I have chosen recent projets to best reflect my style.

My most recent scrappage. (paper scrap, i dont do digi scrap)
On this page Ive used a digi stamp from the Stamping Shack, as well as a free vintage stamp of a horse.

My latest creation for Tsunami Rose. 
I love the vintage style.

And then this one. Its an actual stamp from Visible image. I love the simple design, hence why i chose this one. The image is sanded to create the shading on the girl.

And then just a few older samples to show my colouring.. These samples are all from last year.

And that is it from me.
Look forward to hear more, but I wish everyone, all the best of luck with the DT.
