Thank you for inviting me to be the guest designer this week and to share a Fall card.  I started stamping in April of 1994 and haven't looked back!  So many fun stamping styles and techniques later and I'm still learning and trying new things…so much inspiration everywhere!  I started blogging in January of 2009, Expressions with Heart is the name of my blog. Happy Fall!

Remember, there's still time to play along with our challenge this week, the linky collection will remain open until Sunday 12 noon EST.  To enter your card in our challenge please see the post below.  Have a great day!

Meet Our Guest Designer ~ Clare

Hi everyone!  I hope you are enjoying your week so far!  Our guest designer for this week is Clare.  You can view her winning card found here.  Clare made this gorgeous card for our 'Coloring With Markers' challenge!  Just look at that amazingly colored flower image and the pretty borders and butterfly with the pearls!!   Such a pretty card!  Thanks so much, Clare!  Be sure to stop by and visit Clare's blog:  Designs by Distressed Miss


 
I am a self confessed stampaholic, well actually I am pretty obsessed with anything to do with papercrafting. In 2004 I decided to turn my obsession into more than just a hobby and opened my craft shop in Horncastle, Lincolnshire 'Cloudnine Crafts'. I never grow tired of papercrafting and like many others my stash just keeps growing! I have been very lucky and honoured to be part of many fantastic design teams past and present and I have met some amazing fellow crafters who have taught me so much for which I am very grateful.

Happy crafting!
 
Remember, there's still time to play along with our challenge this week, the linky collection will remain open until Sunday 12 noon EST.  To enter your card in our challenge please see the post below.  Have a great day!

ABC43 'Coloring With Markers'

Jackie has been off for a few weeks and we are so glad she's back now. Welcome back, Jackie!  Some of our DT needed some time off, but I think for the most part, we are all back, except for Rosie, she'll be with us again later in the month.  We have such a wonderful DT and I love them all :)
