Welcome to the Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge!!

This week we are inviting you to join us for...

The LEAD of Donut Delight will be invited as a Guest Designer in our next challenge!


Please welcome our newest Guest Designer,
Jessica Frost-Ballas, All the Sparkle


Hi, I'm Jessica and I'm SO excited to be a guest designer for this week's Curtain Call!!!  I live in the beautiful Shenandoah Valley with my husband, two dogs, a kitten, and a rabbit.  I've been crafting in one form or another since I was a child but have recently been able to devote more time (and space!) to card-making and I LOVE it!  I am a freelance harpist and I spend most days teaching piano and harp to students of all ages.  I enjoy the ever-changing nature of my day job but I really love my time spent crafting as it allows me to access and unleash a very different side of my creativity!  I love experimenting with new techniques and I can't resist adding a little extra sparkle to all my cards and projects!!  




Next up, is the ever-fabulous Curtain Call Crew with their amazing projects!
