Hello! I'm Rebecca from Wings & Willows. I am a happy wife and mama to 3 sweet girls. The hubby and I live out in the country along with an assortment of animals. In my small amount of spare time, I love to blog about our life  and share some new (and free) stamps that I've created. (As well as fill you in on sales in the shop!) My digital stamps definitely are a reflection of the day-to-day things that go on at home. I've been doodling for the past 30-ish years, so it's great to be able to share my art with friends! In addition to that, I paint fingerprint trees. Just think of them as a fun and unique alternative to guest books. I would love for you to take a peek at my shops. (Or drop a line on my blog! I love to hear from you!) Thanks! Becca :)

Offering a $15 Gift Certificate to online store

Before I share the design teams creations I want to introduce 
to you our newest Team Designer Trudy Harris - Thomas
We are so excited to have Trudy joining the team.

Hey ya'll - I'm Trudy.  I'm somewhat of a newbie at cardmaking and blogging; posting my first creation and blog post just 6 months ago.  Prior to that I  actually owned a couple of little flower shops.  I live in a small agricultural community in South Central Florida with my husband, 2 rescued dogs and one very mean Amazon Parrot   I live approximately 125 miles (round trip) to the closest crafts store.  I can no longer drive due to a medical condition so,  needless to say, I have to improvise often while working on my cards.  You know what they say - necessity is the mother of invention.  I make and/or create many of my own embellishments and rely on the internet heavily for exceptional companies to get me product quickly and at a good price.

I am primarily a card maker, however I do quite a bit of altered art and some scrapbooking; I am BIG on recycling and natural items in my projects.  I don't really have a set "style", although I lean toward Vintage and shabby chic in many of my personal creations where I have "free will".

I have been a GDT on a few sites and I am currently on 2 Design Teams (Tammy's Scrappin Corner and Tsunami Rose Designs) and love the experience I am gaining by teaming with such creative minds.  It makes me create projects that I would probably never try, and I just love how it makes me think "outside of the box and gets me out of my comfort zone".  

Welcome to the team Trudy, I know you all will love the creativity Trudy will be bringing to the team!!

Please join me in giving a warm welcome to 
Our Guest Designer this week the very talented 

Hello! My name is Jackie. I am blessed to be a SAHM to five beautiful children and wife to a most loving and patient man. I started out scrapbooking in 2008, when my daughters’ began 4H. Since then, I have become passionate about all kinds of papercrafting. I began teaching a scrapbooking and mixed media class at our local homeschooling co-op two years ago and love every minute of it! I love to learn and pass that knowledge on to others.
