Hey y'all!  My name is Lori Byrns. I'm 35 years old and have been living in Austin, TX for 11 years. I am a computer engineer by day and crafting is my creative outlet. I have been card making since 2006 and started digital stamping in 2011. I also enjoy scrapbooking and cross-stitching. I'm a bit of a nerd and love pop culture. I am so honored to be the Guest Designer for this week's fun challenge.
