Hi everyone, I want to introduce you to one of my UDI Diva Sisters…Susan Amante. Susan was also one of my stampin' sister for on quarter. I had fun getting to know Susan and she does some great paper crafting. I have not met Susan in person, but hope to one of these days. I asked Susan if she would share one of her recent works, not only is she sharing a card that she has done, but she also has provided us a tutorial for making the card. Susan is AWESOME! I think you all will really like this. Thank you Susan for letting me showcase you.
