It's Here! The First Release Day of our images and our newly formed Ethereal Forest Designs Store! There are 27 images and sentiments for purchasing with more to come each month. The design team has been busy creating cards this past week using the wonderful images and we look forward to more from them in the next few months! Check back every day to see cards  and projects from our very talented Designers! We've put the store's logo on the right sidebar for easy access to our store when you come back to visit us! Make sure you become a "follower" to stay up-to-date on Blog Hop, New Releases and Challenges information! 

Unfortunately, Carla Hiebert had to leave the design team for personal reasons, and we wish her well! We were lucky enough to ask Karen Liddle to join the team and she agreed! Take a minute to learn about her and then see her creation below using "Marble the Unicorn". You can now purchase that image in our store HERE!
Meet Karen: 

"I've been married to Dave for 25 years and we have 2 great kids, Rebekah, just turned 18 and Kristopher who is 12.

I work from home designing and making wedding cakes and other celebration cakes, though I must admit, I prefer making the wedding cakes. I get so much satisfaction when the bride and groom-to-be, come to view their cake, just before their wedding day. I've been doing this for the last 8 years and 4 years ago I had an extension built onto the side of my home, especially for my card making. Since I took up card making, this now shares the same space, but I must admit the card stash takes up most of the space!

I've been crafting in one way or another for as long as I can remember. I come from a family of knitters and chocheters, so can do both. I've done lots of dressmaking including wedding and bridesmaids dress, curtains, cushions, etc. I've also done a lot of cross stitching, though I've not done much since I got into card making 5 years ago. Now I never buy a card for any occasion and I even make all my own Christmas cards, and also cards to sell through the year.

I love rubber stamping, and think digital downloads are amazing and have built up a nice collection over the last few years. I like to colour my images with either ProMarkers or Distress Inks. I also love to make my own flowers for my cards. I've dabbled a little big in scrapbooking, but I'm still not sure whether I enjoy it or not, because I find it hard to fill in all the space!
Here is my card using Marble the Unicorn and you can see how I made it on my blog HERE!
