Please welcome our amazing Guest Designer for this month, Lori Podolsky.

I live in upstate New York nestled in the beautiful Adirondacks. I have two handsome adult sons. We each have two kitties.  I've always loved crafting. I started scrapbooking in 2000 but when I discovered Copic markers in 2010, I switched over to making cards. Creating cards is now my passion. I am also drawn to vibrant colours, especially all shades of pinks and purples.


We're thrilled to have her join us with this stunning project!
