Guest Designer:) - For Nicole

Welcome to Funky Cards


Today I am a guest designer for Nicole on her blog Canadian Nickel Scrap'n.  Thank you Nicole for this great opportunity!  You are such a talented designer!! Your blog ROCKS!! 

Who is Madison? I am a 16 year old girl who stumbled into card making when I was looking for a way to earn money to pay for my club volleyball tuition.  Besides paper crafting and volleyball, I like spending time with my family and friends, sewing, painting, and just being creative.

What am I up to? I am about to start my Junior year of high school.  I will be playing varsity volleyball as a left-handed setter:)  When I'm not in school I can either be found at Michael's where I work part-time or in my craft room working on projects for my design teams:)  I am a member of the Cooking With Cricut and the My Cricut Craft Room Design Teams. 

What's new and exciting?  I started the "I Feel the Love Project," spreading love one card at a time.  Each month we send cards to someone who is experiencing a difficult time in life.  The response as been amazing.  If you are interested sending a card to someone who could use some joy in their life, please click on my link:)  It really makes YOU feel good too to help someone else:)  

My project was designed and created for Holly and Aaron McRae.  They are the parents of Kate McRae, this month's recipient of the "I Feel the Love Project" cards.

This is a simple card of encouragement I created using the Kate's ABC's Cricut cartridge and a beautiful sentiment from the Pink By Design "Sympathy" stamp set.  If you find a pretty piece of background paper, you don't need to add much to it to make a special card.  I added a few embellishments like the small brads and stitching on the mushrooms and the tiny gems on the butterfly.

So what do you think?  I like how this card turned out:)  Thanks for stopping by.  Have a great day.
