Here is what Christa had written about her crafting journey:

Before I start to introduce myself I want to say a big THANK YOU to the designteam for choosing me for your spotlight-winner. I feel really honoured and it means a lot to me. 

I live in Holland , I’m 48 years young and I started scrapbooking in 2005. Only a couple of years ago I discovered the card-making with stamps.  First I used Magnolia’s , but now I am trying different brands. At the moment I love to colour with my distress-ink-refill’s. I don’t know how to describe my style of cardmaking ….

I like vintage a lot , my colours are never too bright and my cards always seem to be too small for everything I want to put on it. Since I have started my blog I have met so many lovely scrapfriends. It is such a great hobby ! I wouldn't know what to do without it ….

Love from Holland , Christa.

Lena Katrine
A stunning creation with gorgeous flowers and dies, fabulous colours and 
matches the theme perfectly.

And from Lena Katrine:

I've always been doing all sorts of crafting, and I still love knitting and crotetching once in a while, but started paper crafting in the year of 2006 and got hooked! When I started blogging in 2008, my love for paper crafting really hit the roof!

There's so many talented crafters/artists out there, and they're all giving me lots of inspiration, along with so many other things around me. I love the smell of rubber stamps and papers, the beauty in pretty embellishments like flowers, pearls, lace and ribbon, and the relaxing and fun feeling of creating something new and unique.

I love colouring images with promarkers, prismacolors and distress ink, and so bringing the caracters in to life. I love trying out new foldings, technics and items, and I'm always trying to develope myself as a crafter.

Thank you so much for the space in your spot light!

Congratulations to both, please go pick up your 'In the spotlight' sidebar button and display on your blog with pride, it's well-deserved.
