City Crafter Challenge Blog Week #57 ~ Stripes and Polka Dots

Hello, It's me Linda and I am back with a brand new challenge for you this week. 
Stripes and Poka Dots. That it. Just that simple.... all you need to do is add them to your project this week. But it must be BOTH of them.... So I am really excited to see what you come up with!

Week 57 ~ Stripes and Polka Dots

Guest Designer
I am happy to introduce you to our Guest Designer this week - Viola Mahr. A young lady from the Sunny Island Singapore, she is not just a crafter, she is also a graphic designer, our City Crafter Challenge Blog's new look is the lovely work of Viola Mahr

Here's a little about Vio in her own words: My name is Vio and I am still a little girl... 19 this year : )
I live with my parents and family in Singapore, a beautiful island in Sounh-East Aisa where we have year-round summer. From my lovely mother, I inherited a love for handmade things, and starting at a young age I learned painting, sewing, and many other crafts. Even now as I venture further into music education and my higher studies, I do my best to create time for my favorite hobby - cardmaking. Besides creating handmade cards, I also do graphic designing, and love to create blog banners (like this one for City Crafter Challenge Blog). Visit me at my Sunshine blog, or in my Handmade shop.... I'd love to have you there!

Vio is going to spoilt us by not just one, but two of her lovely creation here... Thanks Vio!!!
