The Team


Hi there, my name is Doris and I'm known as Kleido in the blogger world. I live in Germany with my husband and our cat and have been very creative since I was a child. After various handicrafts I decided to work with paper and mainly make cards - especially unusual folding - and packaging and I mostly work with digistamps, which I color in with watercolor pencils. I've had my own blog since 2014 and I've also been in various DT teams until I founded my own challenge blog in 2017. I'm also active in other teams and look forward to taking on this new challenge 2CCC from 1 October 2021! You're welcome to take a look at my blogs and follow me / us so that you don't miss anything. I would be very happy to receive comments and play along!
Love and creative greetings

Hello everyone, my name is Anne and I live in a small town in Yorkshire in the UK with my husband. I work full time for a lovely company looking after all their Quality Assurance and Health and Safety and when work is done I love to relax with some papercrafting, stitching or gardening.
I also run a sketch challenge blog and you can find my own blog at Paper and Ink

Hello from Hamilton, New Zealand. I am a lifelong crafter who has tried all sorts of crafts (especially those with fabric and paper) and am lucky enough to have a craft-tolerant husband. We have four children and eight grandchildren all living in NZ. I blog about my crafts, so check it out - CarolG ... creates (creationsnz). I don’t think I have a particular cardmaking style tending towards the unfussy, although I have been known to go WiLd from time to time and I do like to get inky. I love challenges and trying new things, so I’m looking forward to being part of such a creative team.   Cheers, Carol Gunn.       

Hello everyone, my name is Faith, known as Faith A in blogland. I am from Wales UK, The national flower of Wales is the daffodil, hence the name of my blog Daffodil Cards . We also have a dragon on our flag, because of this I adore dragons, it’s a critter! I was brought up with cats and a rabbit. After marriage I have had a few dogs too. We haven’t any animals at the moment. I have been a crafter all my life, in fact, name a craft and I’ve probably attempted it, I love taking photographs, I am known to take photos of cows and sheep in fields and horses in the wilds of the mountains here. A Master at all I do? Nope, I just like doing crafty stuff. And enjoying it. 
 My style? I don’t think I have one, whatever takes my fancy on the day. I’m so happy to have joined this talented Team, I just hope I don’t let them down!      

My name is Gale and I live in Texas, USA. I have been making cards for about 12 years.  I especially like working with digital stamps.  Coloring the stamps is relaxing.  I have done a lot of different crafts over the years, but cardmaking is my favorite.  I do still make some jewelry from time to time.  I am a retired accountant.  I am married and have two children and five grandchildren.  We also have two Miniature Schnauzers.  I am on several design teams and you can visit my blog at Gale's Stamping Corner.

I've always been into crafty things. I started out with cross-stitch and making jewelry. About 17 years ago around the time my first daughter was born, I was introduced to card making with Stamping Up! I thought I might get into making scrapbooks, but quickly decided that I preferred the small size of cards. I really got into making cards in 2008 when my twins were born and I discoveredthe online world of card making blogs and challenges. I don't think I have bought a commercial greeting card since; I love making my own cards and being able to personalize them to the recipients! I'm so honored to have been asked to be a part of the Critter Crazy design team.

My name is Helen and I live in the little town of West Kirby in the Wirral which is in north west England.  I work full time as an Activities Coordinator in a care home and crafting is my escape in the evenings and at weekend.  I've been cardmaking for many years and love stamps, digi stamps, patterned paper and Promarkers.  I am lucky enough to belong to various Design Teams and I also run four challenge blogs. 

Hi, my name is Janet Hines, but my blog name is Sweetpea. Not so much after the flower, although I do love them, but I used to have chinchillas and I named one Sweetpea. I'm live in the UK and have now retired from my admin job in the NHS. I love crafting and have tried most things but my favorites are card making and knitting. You can visit my blog here Jan's Crafty Spot. I've been married to Ted for 38 years and we love our holidays together visiting the sea. 

Hi everyone,
I´m  the new member in the team of Critter Crazy. My name is Uschi and you can find my blog at Uschis Kartenkrams ( I´m 66 years old and live in a small town in Germany, in Lower Saxony near Hanover. I am married and I´m now grandmother to two grandchildren - a girl and a boy.

I've been addicted to crafting for as long as I can remember. Knitting, crocheting, pictures made of construction paper, figures and jewelry made of polymer clay, window paint, crafts with natural materials, ... I've tried everything except of sewing. Into stamping I got in 2011 through making greeting cards out of wrapping paper (the motives are getting cut out and backed with styrofoam). And since that time I´ve really been obsessed of crafting cards and gift boxes. I love sitting together with my crafting friends and trying out new card shapes or design options. And sometimes I sit alone for hours in order to try out new stamps or to surf the internet for new folding techniques.

In addition, I don't forget my family, and I still have a little time left for photography. Even though the photos on my blog may not always look as professional as I would like them to be.
I am a great fan of the East Frisian island of Borkum. Going there once a year for a two-week vacation is an absolute must.

I´m already pensionary and I'm happy that I have time to stamp, color, fold and design. And I'm happy if you like it. From January 2024 I can support the Critter Crazy team. I'm looking forward to this new role and feel very honored to have been asked.

Hugs Uschi
