GREAT selection, please go check it out & tell Kim that we sent you!!!!

This week we have a new Guest Designer for April.  Please welcome HELEN:

 Helen, although I blog as Crafty Mamma Mia, and I live on the south
coast of the UK with my husband of 19 years and our 2 lovely girls. When
 I'm not crafting, I work part-time in the very busy Medical Room of our
 local High School as a Duty First Aider, looking after up to 2,000
people on site (students and staff) at any one time - fortunately, they
don't all have accidents or become unwell at the same time, and I do
have other First Responders on site to call on!
 been crafting for as long as I can remember in one form or another. I
started knitting and sewing, did the obligatory macramé at school, then
moved onto lacemaking, cross stitching and have dabbled in tatting. The
only thing I can't do is crochet, but that's not for the lack of trying!
 My love of design comes from calligraphy, which I studied at evening
classes for 2 years.
 have been making cards for just a year now and have found it totally
addictive (all other crafts are now gathering dust!), and I set up my
blog 8 months ago. I can honestly say that "blog land" has been the best
 thing for improving my card design and making skills and I have made
some lovely friends along the way. and I am really thrilled to have been
 invited to join the team at Incy Wincy as GDT for April.

And here is Helen's gorgeous easel card featuring Milton from Wild Rose Studios:

Please be sure to visit Helen & show her some INCY love!!!
