Glenda's 100th Challenge

I was thrilled to be asked to play alongside Glenda Wyatt and a group of talented stampers for Glenda's 100th Challenge!!  Glenda and I became friends after I attended one of her local stamping classes.  We meet every so often when we are visiting each other's "city"!  She is an amazing friend, stamper and teacher and I am very honoured to be sharing a card with you today.  As you know I have been occupied with my grandmother's care (alongside my mum) and as a result have not been paper crafting in the past few months.  My focus has been around health and wellness as we are helping grandma through this very rough time.  So thank you for your patience!

So in honour of Glenda's 100th Challenge she is sharing some SPECTACULAR blog candy as well as offering you a blog hop. 

The deets:

full color brochure printing said...

The booklets are good ways to present ideas to clients. It can do wonders in any campaign, because they allow you to share lots of information about a package that anyone can easily take anywhere.

Jill Grace said...

This is so lovely - so simple and elegant!

Sarah said...

This card is adorable! So adorable that I started to follow your blog! Keep up the great work - you're quite the inspiration!

custom poster printing said...

Each card design I've seen the cheapest to most expensive looks absolutely terrible. Also considered tacky. If anyone has one in their house.
