Finishing up the month

Tomorrow (or likely today by the time you read this) is the last day to enter the September challenges in order to be eligible for a prize so why not spend World Card Making Day and make something for one of our challenges? The deadline to enter is 10:00 pm EST!

As we are heading out of one month and into another I wnated to take a minute to introduce our Guest DT for the month of October - meet Debra!


"Hi, I’m Debra Almanza, I live in the land of enchantment (New Mexico) and I have a creative blog called Enchanting Stamping and other pursuits.  I’ve been a Close to My Heart/D.O.T.S consultant for 14 years now and I still totally love our products, they are the best around.  So… this is how it happened. One day I was sitting in the teacher’s lounge at school where someone had strategically left a D.O.T.S. catalog on one of the tables.  A staff member was hosting a gathering at her house.  I couldn’t make the gathering but I took one look through the catalog and I fell in love with all the stamps and the creative potential I could imagine using those stamps.  I called the person whose name was on the back of the catalog and told her “I’ve never been to a stamping event and you don’t know me, but I love the catalog, I think I want to sign up as a demonstrator”, that’s what we were called back then.  I’ve been happily stamping and creating ever since.


I’ve only recently had the opportunity to play along with the Heart 2 Heart Challenges but they have really inspired me to try new things and work outside my comfort zone.  I am thrilled to be a part of this month’s challenges as a Guest Design Team member and want to thank all the talented contributors who participate in each challenge.  You’ve inspired me so much!"

 
Welcome Debra - we're happy to have you joining us!

That's all for now everyone - I will see you Monday with a new challenge and a couple of new sponsors too!
