Tuesday Spotlight on..

I am so happy to announce that our Tuesday Spotlight this week is

She is a former designer at Sugar Nellie and I have been following her blog a long time.
So I was so happy when she said yes to making us a card, and answering our Q&A.

On this gorgeous card she has used Party Frills

 About Me:
I live in Houston, Texas with my hubby and best friend Tom. 
I have two wonderful children Alyssa (21) and Wade (18).

I started card making several years ago after going to a Close To My Heart demonstration and was blown away with what you can do with a stamp and an ink pad! It was so much fun I decided to become a demonstrator. I enjoyed teaching cardmaking and scrapbooking for 7 years. I had to give it all up for a while though due to the age of my kids, but now that they are older I have time to play again.

I switch off on my favorite coloring medium between copics and distress inks. I love both of them and it just depends on the card as to which one I chose to use.

My favorite Simply Sassy stamp is “Party Frills”!!! …….What personality this stamp has with the little tutu and the pouty look on her face! She is adorable! I became addicted to this cute line of stamps while I was working on the Sugar Nellie Design Team.

I don’t think I have a favorite style of card making. Since I tend to get bored easily, I am always wanting to try new things tee hee! I will admit that I have a love of special fold cards and cards with motion even though I don’t always have time to make them.

The Simply Sassy blog is fantastic! There are so many great ideas on here! This is such a great place for inspiration! I love that there is a wonderful mixture of projects and cards!!! I am honored to be a guest in the spotlight. Thank you to the design team for having me!

It was such a treat digging into Dena's blog finding cards to show you, 
and I wish I could put them all on here but to see all of her Sassy creation you must pay her a visit :)


Okay that was a few more sample's than I was planning but who can blame me?
