Sketches! Guest Designer: LeAnne Pugliese

I am excited to announce that this weeks Sketches! Guest Designer is:

LeAnne Pugliese

I am so excited to be asked to be a guest designer! Thanks so much, Tamara, for this opportunity.

I have been stamping for many years, and a Stampin'Up! demonstrator for almost six years. I cannot remember a time when I have not had some sort of craft project in progress!! My mom gave me a crewel pincushion kit one year for Christmas, thinking it would keep me busy for a couple weeks and I had it finished by the time dinner was over! I love to sew, cross stitch, paint, cook, read, do crossword puzzles, but most of all, stamp!! One of my greatest joys in becoming a demonstrator was to help people create a card that, when shared with another, would bring joy. When stamping, I prefer simple styles, but like to challenge myself to step it up a notch occasionally by using new techniques or color combinations! I am constantly amazed by the creativity I have seen since I began visiting fellow stampers' blogs, and probably spend more time doing that than actually stamping! I started my own blog, and have made lots of new friends through it. You can visit me at

When I am not squirreled away in my stamp room, I work part time in the accounting field and I am very active in several ministries in my church. My husband, daughter and I live on property that was once my family's farm in southeastern Pennsylvania, and I am continually blessed by how beautiful it is here.

Thanks again for the opportunity to share my creations with you!

Here is the Card Sketch LeAnne Chose. It is Sketch # 11.

And here are two cards that LeAnne made with that Sketch!
