This month we are excited to have the talented Sheri Gilson as our Guest Designer. Sheri is an amazing designer, who inspires me with her incredible, layered cards. I am so happy she is joining us this month!  Welcome, Sheri! I asked her to share a little about herself!

Hi! My name is Sheri and I live in Northern California with my husband of 21 years and our 15 year
old son. I’m a SAHM who loves to create. I was first introduced to stamping just before the birth of my son and have never stopped. I currently design for By LORi Designs, Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge, i {heart} papers, The Deconstructed Challenge, and The Pink Elephant Challenge. Thank you so much, Lesley, for inviting me to guest design!!
