This weeks Guest Designer is.....
Cheryl from Ink Up
Hello! My name is Cheryl. You can find me at Ink Up. I've been married to Lamar for 13 years, and am a SAHM to our 8-year old daughter. I've been involved in some type of craft since I was 5 years old: sewing, knitting, crochet, quilting, counted needlework, jewelry making, bookmaking (a maker of books, not a bookie!)...well, you get the idea. The only crafts I encountered that I purposely avoided were macrame, tatting, and scrapbooking. Yes, scrapbooking! But, 2 years ago, I was making blank books and looking for ways to decorate the covers, when I came across the world of cardmaking. I never even got that book cover decorated. I immediately started learning everything I could about papercrafting, and before I knew it, I was up to my elbows in stamps, ink, paper, and dies, and loving every second of it. I love all styles of cards, but I tend to do a lot of distressing and often make shabby or grungy cards, so I was especially thrilled when Leslie asked me to be a Guest Designer. It was so much fun coloring little Cupcake Josie, and I certainly couldn't make her grungy! I hope you enjoy seeing what I came up with for her. ~Hugs, Cheryl
