October Guest Designer - Annette Allen Pt.1

Happy Wednesday Love My Tape friends and crafty followers!  Tina here today with a special post. 

I would like to introduce Annette Allen, our October Guest Designer.  She has created some awesome cards to share with you, but first, let's get to know Annette a little better.

My name is Annette Allen. I am a housewife and I love the Lord. I have been married for almost 18 years to the best Christian man in the world. I have been blessed with creativity and I am so grateful. I have been making cards for 16 years. I enjoy creating smiles and my cards are what brings people joy. What more could I ask for? I am so honored to have been asked to guest design for Love My Tapes and I hope that you enjoy my cards. I look forward to new friendship and I hope you will stop by my blog and say hi. Have a crafty day.

Annette is on several Design Teams, including:

You can also find Annette on her blog:
Here's what she has to say about her first Love My Tapes creation.
Hi everyone I am super excited to join you today for my first guest design post.
I have been hooked on Love My Tapes for a while now and can't get enough. I so love to create backgrounds instead of using designer paper I have been using Fabric, Lace and Washi Tape as my backgrounds on my cards and my fellow craft friends just love it. With all the fun patterns it is easy to do.

On this card I put strips of Lace Tape and then ran it through my Tim Holtz Vagabond with a Spellbinders die. It is easy to do and so addicting.

I hope that I have inspired you to try making your own background with Love My Tapes fabric, lace and/or washi tape. Have a crafty day. Thanks for stopping by.

 Make sure and stop back later in the month when Annette shares another amazing project!
