Welcome to our August Guest Designer: Amy Tsuruta!

We are beyond thrilled to welcome Amy Tsuruta as our Guest Designer for August - YAY!

Amy is of the most talented CAS cardmakers and one of the loveliest and most supportive persons out there. She's a genius in designing cards that make my jaw drop and takes a lot of time to support fellow crafters.
I don't know where we first met - it must have been some time ago, probably on another Design Team. 

Let's see what's Amy got to say about herself:

Hi!  My name is Amy and I've been blogging over at Tsuruta Designs since 2007.  One of the many reasons why I enjoy blogging/crafting is the constant inspiration by others in the Paper Crafting Community.  

I work at a start up biotech company in Seattle and have 2 wonderful kids.  My son is a high school senior and my daughter is in her 2nd year at the University of Washington (Go Huskies!}.  I'm engaged to a wonderful guy that continues to encourage my crafting, you gotta love that!  He's currently building his first airplane and we hope that it will be completed early next year.

Super thrilled to be the August Guestie at Create a Smile!!
This is the card that Amy created for last month's launch Blog Hop:


Amy is going to knock your socks off - I already saw sneak peeks of what she is going to share with you soon. 
Please give her a warm welcome!

Thanks Amy, for joining us, I feel honored to call you my guest!
