We are happy to introduce you to our last but certainly not least Guest Designer Dawn

We were thrilled to have her this month!  Here is a little about her in her own words:
I’m 55… a wife(37yrs), mother (of 5), grandmother (of 9) living in rural Ohio amongst corn, soybean and wheat fields. I have 3 dogs, a couple barn cats and 14 llamas. I have a llama 4H club and we show in competition, go to nursing homes (yes, we take the llamas in!) and generally have fun!

I was first introduced to paper crafting (as probably so many are) at an SU workshop. I only went because my daughter had booked a party “to be nice” from a friend. HA! What would I do with stamps? But, it was MY daughter, so I HAD to go! What can I say….. I WAS HOOKED!

I’ve always enjoyed crafting in various mediums (since I have the llamas, I spin their fiber into yarn for knitting/crocheting just for one example!), but stamping was different…not only do I really enjoy creating cards and altered items, but the joy of sending a card with just the right sentiment…sometimes “just because”, to a person at the RIGHT time and giving them encouragement or just making them smile and feel “special” is so rewarding!

I do freelance work, have served on many design teams, and have quite a few magazine publications under my belt. So far the highlight was being asked to help illustrate a coloring techniques book by Annie’s Attic! I do love to color. Thanks to Terry and Creative Cuts and More for asking me to be a Guest Designer this month!

 This pop-up card is so pretty!  To get the details and see the inside check it out HERE.
I can't get over her cute this Box With Handle and Layer is!  To see more about it visit her blog HERE.

Dawn, thank you so much for joining us this month!  It was a pleasure to have you and we can't wait for you to come back!
