my name is Sally and I am so thrilled to be joining Gail and Jo as
the Guest Designer for the Let’s Squash It! April challenge. I
live near the beautiful Jurassic Coast in Dorset, England and I have
been a keen crafter and maker for as long as I can remember. I soon realised that my real passion is card making and I then started my blog Sally’s Cards back in 2009, finding it was the perfect way to
virtually meet like minded people. I have a huge collection of
embossing folders that were gathering dust and this challenge blog
has made me rediscover my love for using them."
