"Hello, my name is Samra Leshinski and I live in Las Vegas, NV with my loving husband, son, and a variety of pets. I work full time and card making is my pastime addiction. I ventured into actual blogging and participating in challenges in April of 2014.
If I had to pick my favorite style that would definitely be Shabby Chic, but I try to have variety in my work. It makes me so happy to see big smile on someone’s face when they receive my handmade card. I am still learning a lot about all the different ways to create textures and details on the projects and am trying to have fun along the way.
I know that my card making is not going to change the world, but spreading a little joy here and there is one small step that I can take to make the world a better place."
"I would like to thank Linda and Design Team for this amazing opportunity and great honor.
When I started thinking trains, planes, automobiles, I asked myself: Why not a Hot Air Balloon??? So I went ahead and created a shabby chic card with a hot air balloon as my focal point.
I used lace ribbon; vellum doily die cuts; layer upon layer of distressed patterned cardstock from my stash; metal filigrees painted with white distress paint; bling and chitchat stickers. Making this card was like putting together pieces of a perfect puzzle. Everything seemed to fit together just right, at least to me…
I hope this travel themed card gives you additional inspiration for this amazingly fabulous challenge."
