The Guest Designer:
We're lucky to be joined today by the very talented Jacqueline de Groot.
Here's a little more about Jacqueline:
"My name is Jacqueline and I live in the South of France with DH and four sons. I am not French, I am English.
I started card-making years ago because I couldn't find the cards I liked in the local shops in France, to send to friends and family back home! They were also so expensive so I decided to make my own. That's when I gradually got interested in rubber stamps. I absolutely love the vintage style and colors and made the cards I would have loved to have found in the shops. I still love card-making and have a blog which keeps me in contact with lovely people on the Internet who craft as their hobby."
And here is Jacqueline's wonderful take on this week's sketch:
