Hi! My name is Ivonne and I live in
San Juan, Puerto Rico.
I am mother of an 18 year old beautiful young lady, who makes me proud every day. 
I work full time in an accounting firm as an Information Technology Specialist. 
I’ve been crafting since I was a little girl.
 I’ve done macramé, cold porcelain, scrapbooking, mosaics and a few more.
A few years ago, and thanks to my best friend Kathya, I started making cards and I loved it immediately.
 My favorite thing to do is coloring, especially with Copics, I love, love, love it, it’s my stress reliever! I am always trying to learn new techniques and to improve my coloring skills.
I can stay hours looking at what other card makers do, admiring all of your creations and learning a lot from each and every one of you.
 That’s why I can hardly wait to see what you are going to create for our new challenge.

Big hug, Ivonne 

The challenge Ivonne has chosen is:

I think that most of us are already
familiar with Marianne Design and
their wonderful crafting products!
I own quite a few of their die cuts
and they are always the perfect die
to use for beautiful, elaborate embellishments
with precise clean cut lines.
They are really nice quality!
Marianne Designs is a Dutch owned craft company
based in the Netherlands.
Their products are available in 18 countries around the world! 
They produce a wide range of products which represent a complete
concept of paper crafts.
There are different lines of stamps and dies with matching papers
and materials to decorate your cards or scrapbooking pages.
Products are chosen carefully for mixing and matching
and stimulating creativity.

We are so excited to share the
very generous die cut sets
