Greetings Ann!

Hi Oddies! Welcome back to a new week! We have a couple more DT intros for you and on Thursday we will have our next challenge. This one is a Style Challenge so stop on by for that! But don't head out just yet!

Today let me introduce you to Ann!

Ann is a busy bee! For someone who has only been doin this craft  for not even a YEAR she can and will totally blow you away! She's up front and isn't afraid to shine! Here's a lil about Ann...
I started creating cards in May 2009 because I got laid off earlier in the year and couldn't stand to sit at home doing nothing. I was inspired by all the wonderful blogs and decided to pick up cardmaking. I've been in love with the hobby ever since :) I work full-time now, but can't seem to shake off the new hobby, lol. I love all styles, from sweet and girly to elegant and mature, and clean and simple to layered and full of embellishments. It just depends on what I feel like making for the day. I don't think anyone should ever hold back just because they need to stick to a certain style. Concerning the personal stuff, I live in Los Angeles, CA, have been married for about 1.5 months, have 4 dogs (they are our kids for now), and love to do outdoorsy things like fishing, hiking and camping (we're going camping to the Sequoia National Forest in May). I hope I haven't rambled on too much!
Never too much rambling! I am a big offender of rambling hehe. When Ann sent me her app in the samples were amazing but this one totally blew me away just for all the dimension...

Look at that! Its a serious and gorgeous piece of art! No way I could turn talent like that away! I'm thrilled to have her on our DT. Ann was kind enough to answer our Odd Questions too!

What makes you Odd? I have crafting mood swings where I just can't seem to decide what style I like best. Therefore in that sense, I think I'm odd :)

If you were a thumbtack where would you stick yourself? On a hot air balloon (with no passengers, of course)

What ONE crafty item do you most identify with and why? A paper cutter/trimmer - sharp, precise, sometimes taken for granted and overlooked, but always necessary

5 Random Facts about you! I have four dogs, I love puzzles, I couldn't picture the world without trees, I have a sweet tooth, and I can never have enough patterned paper

If you had to choose between being colour blind or losing your sense of taste for the rest of your life, which would you choose? Why? Color blind. What's the point of seeing the color of an orange if I can't taste it?

What fictional character is most like you? Hmm, it would have to be the Boy Scout kid from Up! - his name is Russell

The thumbtack question has to be my fav! Quite a ride she would get!!! Well Ann is celebrating her intro day over at her blog with another Giveaway! The digi she is giving out is certainly one of my FAVS! He could be one of yours too! Just hop on over to Ann's Blog and get in on it! Don't forget to come back tomorrow for our last intro!
