October Guest Designer - Heather Hoffman!

Hello and Happy Monday!

Today I get to reveal our very special Guest Designer for our October - Heather Hoffman! We look forward to seeing what Heather does with our stamps starting with our October release reveals next week!

Here's some more about Heather in her own words - Make sure to check out her blog and say hello!

Heather Hoffman
Houses Built of Cards

My name is Heather, and I blog over at Houses Built of Cards. I have been married for 14 years to the man of my dreams, and have two sweet daughters age 11 and 10 that I homeschool. I absolutely LOVE making cards – and also enjoy scrapbooking memories of my family. I lived my entire life up until about two years in Northwestern Washington State, and now live in a very small town in Wyoming – although that is about to change, as we recently found out we are relocating back to Washington State sometime in the next few months. If you aren’t familiar with my blog name, then let me explain a little! When I started card making, I quickly found that I was making WAY more cards than I could possibly use. Thanks in part to my young daughters and something they both cared deeply for, I decided to direct all the proceeds from the sales of my cards to the building of houses for widows and their children in Burundi, Africa, through a ministry called Sister Connection. Building one house is amazingly just $600!!! I just finished the money portion of my 5th house, and am continuing to work toward a 6th. If you are interested, you can read more about that HERE.

I am so excited to be playing with Newton’s Nook Designs this month! Their quality is fabulous, and every single image is darling – and I love all the beautiful matching sentiments!
