Episode #58 brought a new face to the wheel! Wendy Cranford from Luvin’ Stampin! I knew I’d like crafting with her from watching her YouTube channel & how much she loves her dogs! If you haven’t watched the show, give it a play, she’s that FUNN. If you haven’t subscribed to her channel, and liked her on FB, get on it! You won’t want to miss a minute. Thank you, Wendy. BTW, if I hear from Trisha, Garth, or the Rock for some stamps, I’ll send them your way.

OK, contributors, you gave us SO many creative ideas this week! Next time you need a fancy fold, be sure to visit this post! Very well done and I look forward to joining Wendy to review each and every submission on Contributor Showcase! It’s going to be such a pleasure to stroll amongst the beautiful ideas. Join Wendy and me Tuesday at 1:00 p.m. Central!

Having FUNN with our patrons, too, as they help shape the parameters with vetoes and show with questions.
