Meet our December Guest Nancy Salked who is introduced by Design Team member Michele...

Nancy and I got to know each other a little through this wonderful crafting community we are all a part of. One day she sent me a card and I fell in love with her beautiful, bright, colorful, and very clean style! He projects always feel so bright and positive. I knew Nance would create something joyful and cheerful using a few Poppystamps products. Thanks for joining the Poppystamps family for our December challenge!

My name is Jen and I've been crafting for as long as I can remember! I've always been in love with being creative and making handmade projects!
I live in New Hampshire with my husband, 2 kids and a cute little fluff ball called Waffle!   Having 2 small kids took me away from having as much time for crafting and cardmaking for years. 2020 may have been a really tough year but one really awesome thing did come out of it for me! I returned to cardmaking!
