My name is Cheryl, and I am so excited to be a guest designer with Your Next Stamp this month.  A little about me: I’m married to my best friend and a mom to three amazing kids (ages 7, 4, and 4).  Between them and my 9-5 job as a project manager, being creative keeps me grounded, lol.  Thanks so much to YNS for letting me be a part of their team for the month.

My name is Allison, and I am so thrilled to have the opportunity to be a guest designer this month.  A little about me, I’m a mom to one human (super awesome boy) and 8 non-humans (cats, pig and a rabbit).  When I am not tending to my menagerie of animals and after I am finished beautifying peoples hair at work, I love to sneak away to my craft room and make beautiful and fun cards.  It’s my happy place, my super happy place.  Thank you Your Next Stamp for allowing me to share my creations this month.YNS Supplies:  Waddles


 

This month is going to be full of treats from both guests, plus the new release arrives on March 12th!

Happy Stamping!
