You can never have too many Guest Designer! Last week, we had a tie and we're so excited to introduce you to our 2 Guest Designers this week.
My name is Cathy Weber. I got started with scrapbooking and cardmaking about two years ago when I decided to make a wedding scrapbook for my daughter-in-law. It was while I was making this book for her that I discovered how much fun it was to use clear stamps, and from then on I was hooked. I’ve since learned how much fun it is to give someone a handmade card with all the thought and meaning behind it. I have been married to my husband, Warren for 31 years and have three children. I live in southern CA with my husband and college-age daughter. My two sons are all grown up and living on their own, thus the name for my blog, The Empty Nest Crafter. I love that I have something interesting and creative that I can do with my time now that my “nest” is almost empty.
I was so excited and honored to have my card chosen as one of the winners for CPS #114. My cardmaking style is CAS and I turn to CPS sketches often for inspiration. I hope that you enjoy my take on Sketch #117.

Keepsakes By Melissa
Hi! My name is Melissa Bove. I am a SAHM and live in Southern New Jersey, with my husband Robert and our 2 children, Antonio, 5 and Santino, 9 months. When I'm not being mommy, wifey or housekeeper, (LOL) I enjoy going up to my little piece of heaven, my craft studio. I love to make handmade cards and gifts for friends and family. I also love to scrapbook but cardmaking and handmade gifts are my real passion.
I was totally honored to have been chosen as 1 of the winning cards, along with the super talented Cathy, and to be guest designing along side her this week! I love to participate in the Card Patterns awesome sketch challenges. Thank you so much again for having me! I had a blast! Happy Creating everyone!! Hugs... Melissa
