Yes, it's another special guest designer on my blog today!!!! Help me extend a warm welcome to the sweetest, most exceptional crafter I know, Vanessa Vergara!!!!!! :D I call her Superwoman, because this über talented lady does it all--literally!!! Vanessa is an artist and a designer. She recently launched her own line of hand-drawn digital stamps--a must see!!! She also bakes and decorates beautiful cakes for every occasion--yes, even weddings! She's also a full-time accountant, mom, wife, card maker AND don't ask me how she finds the time, but she also runs her own business--both at home and online... Oh, and did I mention she's also the founder of V's Sweet Challenge blog????!! If you keep up with my blog you know that I design for her challenge blog!!!! This incredible woman chose ME, a beginner card maker, to be a part of what is now my first design team ever!!!!! For this and much more, I am deeply grateful to her!!! During these few months of designing for her challenge blog, I have grown tremendously, not only as a crafter, but as a business woman in the making as well. Vanessa has been my mentor... The amount of help and support that she constantly offers me would make anyone think that she was my own family. I greatly admire Vanessa for her unselfish attitude, not just towards me, but towards anyone who reaches out to her. I could go on and on about Vanessa and never finish. She is just an extraordinary woman! It is an honor and a pleasure to have her guest design on my blog today!!!!!!! Xoxoxo Please, be sure to stop by and visit her online store, her personal blog and the challenge blog that she runs!!! Let her know what a remarkable crafter she is!!!
