Hello crafty friends. I'm Annette Witherspoon and I'm thrilled to be guest designing for Butterfly Reflections, Ink. this month. Before sharing my card, I thought I'd introduce myself. I’ve been married to my husband John for nearly 12 years and I am a mommy to two a son, Jack age nine, and a daughter, Elise age six, who keep me on my toes. Before joining mommy world, I was a public relations professional for 10 years.
I am primarily a card maker who occasionally makes other paper crafting projects. I started dabbling in paper crafts a several years ago - shortly after receiving a handmade wedding card. I fell in love with the idea of creating one-of-a-kind cards made straight from the heart. Four-and-a-half years ago, I ramped up my crafting endeavors when I started my blog, www.aspoonfullofsugarcrafts.
blogspot.com, which is a play on my real name. A is the first letter of my first name, and Spoon is the last half of my last name. I design for Paper Sweeties stamps and Eyelet Outlet, which sells eyelets, brads, ribbon, washi tape and other accessories. Prior design experience includes Sweet Stamp Shop, Pink by Design Stamps, Frosted Designs challenge blog, Joy’s Life Stamps, and Stampendous. My work has been published in Paper Crafts and Scrapbooking, and ScrapStreet magazines. I also wrote for ScrapStreet Magazine, an online scrapbooking and paper crafting magazine.
That's enough about me. Now let's get down to the good stuff - the crafting! Today, I'm sharing a love-themed card I created. After all, Valentine's Day is next Saturday.
