Week 231 ~ Pumpkins

Guest Designer

Please meet.....

Hello, my name is Samra Leshinski and I live in fabulous Las Vegas, NV USA with my loving husband Don, son Tarik, 3 dogs, 31 turtles and 9 mini dart frogs.  I work at Customer Care department of Water Company in Las Vegas. I have been making my own party invitations for several years now, (love to throw parties) but I consider card making my hobby for about over a year now. I ventured into actual blogging and participating in challenges since April of this year.
If I had to pick my favorite style that would definitely be Shabby Chic, but I try to have variety in my work. I also base my creation on a person that will be receiving my card; what are their interests, style and favorite colors. It makes me so happy to see big smile on someone’s face when they receive my handmade card. I make my own flowers for card embellishing, from daisies to roses and am still learning a lot about all the different ways to create textures and details on a project.
 I know that my card making is not going to change the world, but spreading a little joy here and there is one small step that I can make.

I would like to thank City Crafter Challenge Blog for giving me this amazing opportunity to share my work with them. DT is so talented and it is my honor to be part of this amazing group for a week.

Adorable pumpkins Samra!
