I am so proud and humbled to be a part of the new Tic Tac Toe Challenge Design Team!

As a cardmaker, I’m very picky about who gets my cards. Are you like that too? I don’t want to pour all the love and creativity I have into a design just to have it looked at and then tossed. #heartbreak #iworkedsohardonthat #nooooooo!
