New Design Team Member!

The Retro Rubber Challenge is excited to announce the addition of Jan Clothier to our design team!

Jan Chttp://scrapbookingstuff28.blogspot.com/

 

Hello!

I live in the North Island of New Zealand with my husband of 30+ years.  My three fabulous children have left home.

By day, I'm a teacher-librarian at a local secondary school but nights and weekends, I'm a card-maker and scrapbooker.  I discovered card-making and the world of online challenges a couple of years ago when I was off work with a leg injury and I've been addicted ever since!

I became a Stampin' Up! demonstrator just over a year ago and I've really enjoyed the extra challenge of running classes and sharing my work with others.

I'm very pleased to be joining the team at Retro Rubber and look forward to seeing everyone's creations.

 

Welcome aboard Jan!

Be sure to join us January 17, 2017 when our new year of challenges start!
