Guess What? I think I'm a Card Maker!

Yes, my friends! I admit it! I know some of you have pointed it out to me a time or two! I am indeed a card maker...and today proves it! It wasn't that long ago that I was totally intimidated about making a card! Wait until you hear what I did!
Paulette at Create With TLC put out a call that she needed some help...well, that's the way I read it! Now when I see it again it actually says she was calling for *designer that does Steampunk or Vintage cards*  *I am going to be picky on this one* Oh, dear! I don't remember the "designer" part or the "picky" part! YIKES!! lol She needed someone who would be willing to make a card sample for a new image she had created, so I sent her an email, she took a peek at my blog, then sent me the image. I made a card with her lovely image. Then I made another card with her lovely image! Then I sent them to her...and waited...and waited...and WAITED!!! I was dying while I waited to hear from her. So then I heard that she had been busy posting them in her store! lol She liked them! So, I'm a designer that does Steampunk and Vintage cards, I do samples for stores, and you can be picky! lol I guess that makes me a card maker, right? It was a fun image to work with and the links to find it are HERE.
