Grace - This Week's Guest Designer

Grace is our guest designer for this week's Challenge.
This is absolutely gorgeous.
She has prepared a wonderful tutorial for you on how she created it. You can read all about it here!

Thank you Grace for being our guest designer for the next two weeks.

My name is Grace Nywening and my wonderful hubby and I recently celebrated our 40th anniversary! We live in NC with our fat cat, Ricky. He runs the house, we just do his bidding! LOL! I'm a mother and grandmother, and I thank God for His many blessings in my life!

I have been a crafter all my life, but when I found paper crafts I really was hooked! I love making cards, especially those with Scriptures and uplifting messages. While I love doing altered art and even a little scrapbooking, my real love continues to be cards. There are so many ways cards can be a blessing to others, and I love that about this craft!

I was thrilled and honored to be asked by Joan to be a guest designer. I hope you enjoy this fun and easy project I have for you today. I have made several of these and always get requests for a tutorial, so this is the day! You will LOVE how easy these are to make, and with gift giving season getting closer and closer... this might come in handy for all the holidays which will be rapidly upon us! Enjoy!

Enter a project, similar to Graces. using techniques used in her tutorial. Your project does not have to look exactly like hers ,we just want you to use her techniques and create something similar. Make it your own, but use the techniques Grace teaches in her post.

You will have 2 weeks from today, Thursday (August 11th ) morning 6:00 AM EST to link your project. You will be eligible to win a prize. Thursday morning Selma and I will be reviewing each entry and select a winner. Our criteria will be whether or not the techniques were used in the tutorial and the overall appearance of the project. The winner will be announced Friday morning (Augut 12th). You can enter more than once. The winner will also be entered in the end of the year $100 gift certificate from Joan's Gardens.
