Hello and Happy Monday!

Today I get to reveal our very special Guest Designer for our November - Donna Mikasa! I'm so excited to have Donna as guest this month - it's going to be so fun to see her creations - she will be posting with our Design Team starting with our November release reveals next week!

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

Donna Mikasa
three umbrellas

Hello! I’m Donna Mikasa and my blog is three umbrellas. I was born and raised in Hawaii on the island of Oahu. I’m married to my high school sweetheart and we are the parents of two grown daughters.

I’ve always loved some form of paper crafting and began stamping over 15 years ago when stamps were red rubber stuck onto wooden blocks. I consider myself a technique stamper and love to incorporate either ink distressing or water coloring on my cards.

I’m currently on two challenge design teams and recently joined the team at Hero Arts. I’ve come full circle as Hero Arts is where I began sharing my cards in their Flickr group, and where friendships were formed that continue to this day.

I’m honored to be guest designing this month and it was so much fun to get inky with the new release. I know you’re gonna love it!
