Hi, I'm a Dutch native living in Greece and I'm so happy to be
making a guest appearance here! Thank you, Gail and Jo, for inviting me!
I'm a hoarder of all things crafty, including embossing folders, so I'm
really happy to have found this place where I'm encouraged to use my
embossing folders more. I lean towards a clean and simple style, but
also like to get inky sometimes. Fortunately, embossing folders work
either way. I had fun creating this card and hope it will inspire you to
get your embossing folders out and join in the fun!
