Hi, my name is Suzanne Reynolds (iluvscrapping2) and I am originally from Buffalo, New York; however moved to the Sunshine State of Arizona eleven years ago. Papercrafting was not new to me; but with retirement almost five years ago I really stepped up it up primarily in card making. My style and creativity came from entering the many different challenges, rewarded with invites as a Guest Designer, and currently Design Team Member of several challenges … I found my new niche. Thank you Crafting By Designs for honoring me as a Guest Designer for your Challenge.

Awesome inspiration for this challenge! Well it's over to you now to get crafty and share your amazing projects with us. Don't forget to check out the Designers and Guest designers and leave some love.

We also have a real special Guest Designer
showing us her skill and creativity

Hi!  My name is Debi and I'm so happy to be Guest Designing for Crafting by Designs.  I've been making cards for about 10 years and 5 years ago I started my blog, .   I wanted to be able to enter challenges and maybe join a design team.  When it comes to card making, fancy folds are my favorites. When I'm not wearing the marks off my paper cutter (I'm on my 5th one!), you may find me baking, reading, attending my grandsons' sporting events, and, in the evening, the crochet hook keeps my hands busy as I watch/listen to TV with my wonderful husband of 35 years.
The card I am sharing with you today is a very special one for a very special person in my life, my Godmother.  She recently celebrated her 90th birthday.  Found on pinterest, there was no tutorial or name for this particular card fold.  I ruined several sheets of paper before I got the measurements to work.  I used several dies, a few cricut cuts, a stamp that was a magazine freebie, dry embossed the numbers, heat embossed the sentiment, added pearls here and there and finished it off with a bow.  I'm sure Catherine will love it!

Now it is over to you to show us something special!
You have until 23 May 2017 to add your project.
