Hi, Maria!

Your cards are sooo lovely! And I especially love this one!

To spread the joy of crafting, I'm trying to put up a website for card-making beginners.. I have this page where you can share a card and maybe give a short tutorial so beginners can try making it.. If you have the time, I'd like to invite you to guest post with a simple card that a beginner can do.. Please email me at rochelle(at)lets-make-greeting-cards(dot)com if it's something you might be up for. :) Thanks for inspiring me everytime I come and visit your blog! :)
