I'm so glad to share with you that I have been invited to be part of House of Cards' design team. This is a wonderful challenge blog that welcomes every cardmaking style there is.


*NEW* DT Badge 

House of Cards is a monthly challenge.  Each month on the 1st of the month, a new challenge will go live.  Each Monday, a new style team will post their creations for more inspiration throughout the month!  We hope you enjoy stretching yourself and trying NEW things the next six months!

The DT for the new term has been introduced today and a new challenge has been announced: "Add a Bow". I will be sharing my card for the challenge on the last Monday of the month together with the Shabby & Vintage Team.

I know you will enjoy this challenge, there will be new and beautiful cards from the DT for your inspiration every single week. To meet the team click on the 'Design Teams' button on my sidebar. It would be nice if you'd take a few minutes to visit them and see their amazing work.
