For Michaels

A few months ago, I was asked to create a few projects for Michaels using the Faber-Castell Design Memory Crafts line and few other products carried by Michaels. Here's one of the cards I made...

 
I heard back from Rebecca of Faber-Castell a few weeks back and she said, "I was just checking Michaels’ website, and your ‘Hello There’ Card has been pinned on Pinterest 65 times! Did you know that? It is also one of only 45 cards that Michaels has pinned on their 'cards’ board on Pinterest. I think that’s pretty awesome!" She also sent me links to my card on the Michaels website and Pinterest.
Just wanted to share...
