I’d like to take a moment to welcome the talented Andrea Murdock to our YNS stamping family for the month of August!!! So glad to have you with us Andi!!!
Check out this super adorable Cupcake Cutie Fhiona card Andi created along with a bit of info in her own words…
Hi, my name is Andrea but I also go by Andi. I have been married to my best friend for 16 years and we have 2 daughters. Our house is always filled with laughter as we all like to think we are comedians and try to out do each other at making our family laugh! I have been papercrafting for about 10 years now and my addiction hasn’t slowed down a bit! I am not sure what I do more though- buy supplies or actually create- it may be tied! I am even getting better at using my pretty paper and ribbons and not just hoarding it lolz! My favourite medium to work with are copic markers and I love to find new ways to use stamps to show their versatility. My daughters like to craft with me and I have even learned how to share my copic markers without having my eye twitch hee hee! I fell in love with YNS images as they were so fun not only for me to play with but my daughters went nuts over them! They have such a fun whimsical look to them that they are a great addition to my crafting collection. I am so excited to be part of YNS’s August team!

Hello and Happy Thursday!
I decided to start properly introducing our guest designers by sharing a little bit of info along with a photo. I’ve never done this before and I just adore all of my designers so I thought I should start giving everyone proper intros into the YNS family!!!
Please welcome our April guest designer…Silvia Mabie!!!! YAY!!! Welcome Silvia!!! Here is a lovely photo of Silvia with her children plus a little bit of info in her own words…
My name is Silvia and I was born in Portugal but am now living in Greece on the gorgeous island of Crete with my awesome hubby Andrew and 3 amazing kids David (6), Emelia (4) and Isabella (almost 3). I love anything crafty, especially card and gift making. I started rubber stamping for the sheer awesomness of scrapbooking and how cool it would be to have all those letters and supplies for scrapbooking…”I’m never going to get into makings cards” is what I said! yeahhh, right! I think for me the most awesome part about making cards is the instant gratification of getting a project done…having 3 kids so little it’s a wonder I get anything done!
I don’t think I really have a style, I like to try new things and experiment with new techniques…although simple layouts and a few embelishments are always a fav of mine…I also like the one layer cards…I just think they look cool!
Aside from crafting I love to take pictures, hike, swim, laze around on the beach and run…I like to go running at least 3 times a week…sometimes short runs and sometimes long runs!
Thank you sooo much for having me on as a guest designer this month…I am honored!

I hope everyone had a terrific long weekend! It was Thanksgiving here in Ontario so it was busy but a lot of fun as well 🙂 We got together with lots of family, ate a ton of food and then Brandon was so tired after running around with his cousins that he slept in every morning until around 9 am – WHOOO HOOOO!!! that was a real treat!
