ssnotime56 Exquisitely Elegant with Sharon Johnson


In the past weeks, Sharon Johnson (notimetostamp) has been spotlighting each of her design team members and challenging all of us to make a card/project using their style of design. Well, today the spotlight is on Sharon! What fun is this!!! Becky Oehlers has hi-jacked Sharon's challenge so that the Leader of the Pack can be honored as she should be!!! Sharon has a GREAT style about her and I have admired her work from the first day I came onto Splitcoaststampers.


Sharon loves using birds/nature in her cards ... along with cuttlebug backgrounds and scrumptious ribbons. My card uses all of those features that Sharon has perfected so beautifully in the past!! Oh yea, Sharon also likes making square cards (5.5 x 5.5) ... so I have followed suite on this feature too!
Congrats Sharon on being honored for the wonderfully, talented stamper (who inspires us all each week) that you are!! It's an honor to be guest designer on your blog this month!! Keep up the good work!!
Don't forget to checkout what the other girls have done!
Time for bed ... it's been a very long day!!! Catch you in the a.m.
