Guest Designer
This week we have the very talented Tante Kathe joining us as our Guest Designer, thanks for the beautiful card Tante!

Tante Kathe: My name is Majo (a shortcut for Marion). Around the net I am known as "Tante Kathe".
My husband and I live near Frankfurt/Germany with our two lovely cats, also pretty much know around the crop community, as Emma and Cookie are my favorite objects on my Layouts.
I started paper crafting in the winter 2007/2008 when a friend introduced me to the fun of scrapbooking, card making and stamping! I found it was the perfect way to play with all the ideas that kept running through my mind.
I am very lucky to have a supportive husband who knows that I love crafting. I started blogging 4 months ago, just because I wanted to participate in challenges, and since then I have met a bunch of wonderful crafters and had a lot of fun. You are very welcome to visit my blog (www.majos-art.blogspot.com)
