Week 71 ~ Best of Friends

Guest Designer

Get to know Linda....

I'm a recently retired graphic designer. I've worked in the craft and hobby industry for my entire life, growing up in a family owned business. I did scrapbooking for several years, but I wanted to be able to make something that might be a blessing to others. When I began making cards, I saw that it was a way of fulfilling that goal.

  1. I'm having SO much fun with your weekly challenges. I am just wondering if there is a process for applying to be a Guest Designer. I would be honored, and your challenges are fun and SO many talented scrappers submit their beautiful creations.

  3. Beautiful samples! Thanks for the inspiration.

  4. Hi, ladies!

  8. Olá, eu adoro muito este blog, todas as artistas estão de parabéns!!Eu liguei o meu trabalho aqui. Beijocas.

  9. I just wanted to thank your DT members who were kind enough to take the time to comment on my card and very nicely let me know I didn't qualify for a prize because I didn't use the work "friend" on my card. I really appreciate that you all still took the time to comment because for me that's a prize. I look forward to seeing the comments, they make my day. And I actually thought I was stretching with dog as best friend. I have to pay more attention when I'm reading the challenges. Thanks again. I enjoy visiting this blog every week and playing along with your challenges.
