Today I'm so thrilled to be part of Altenew's 2nd Anniversary Blog Hop Celebration. You know, I'm a newbie in the crafting world and I'm kind embarrassed to let you know that I wasn't even crafting at the time of their first blog hop. My hubby went to the US in June that year and I placed my first order for Simon then. I remember that I long went back and forth whether should I order Magnolias for her- set or not. I was so drooling over the beautiful flowers but I wasn't sure if I could ever colour them properly. Well, I decided to order them after all and it has become one of my all time favourites from Altenew.
A year later, Tasnim took me under her loving wings despite of my inexperience in crafting and ever since Altenew has felt like home to me. Thank you so much Tasnim and Jennifer for letting me be part of your Team! It's really been a blast and I've loved every moment of it! Hopefully we have many more years to come ahead of us.
To celebrate Altenew, I made a card with my favourite stamp set and had a blast in colouring it. Hope you like it!
I made this into a video tutorial, you can watch it here or in HD in YouTube.
