Our February Guest Designer is Alanna Moses. Alanna is also a Guest Designer at Frantic Stamper this month!

"Hi – I’m Alanna from Colorado and I am super excited to be guest designing for the Mixed Media Monthly Challenge for February. I am a mother of three fabulous kiddos and a wife. I work full-time as a CPA in a local firm doing audit work. When I have a free moment, I love to hang out with my family and spend some time in my craft room getting inky. I have been scrapbooking and making cards for about the last 13 years or so. Although now, I mostly just make cards as that allows me to start and finish a project in a short amount of time. I love to send cards to friends and family unexpectedly to brighten their day. I’d love it if you stopped my blog, Embellish Craft Love at www.damoses.blogspot.com."
Alanna created this beautiful mixed media card 
for our February "Glitter" Challenge. 

 And now for some inspiration from our Design Team...
