The One with the CARDS March Designer of the Month Feature!

Sunday, March 9, 2014

A couple days late, but worth the wait... congrats to the winner of Noble Paiges book club premier book:

Maggie - email me at paigetaylorevans at gmail dot com and I'll send you a copy of the book! I just got mine in the mail, finished the book I was reading last night (The Longest Ride by Nicholas Sparks), and can't wait to get started!

Tammy asked if I'd like to be the Designer of the Month in the March 2014 issue of CARDS Magazine. Ummmmm... YES!
