Elyss Jennings

Beautiful Cards! So funny; my name is Elyss. I used to spell it Elyse growing up (I have no idea why!) but on my birth certificate it is spelled Elyss. SO to make a long story short I spell my name with two ss' now! haha

Congrats Nicole!



I've been reading your blog for awhile now.....the cards you make are VERY fun and creative!! I'm thrilled to see you as a guest designer for A Muse. Your daughters are DARLING!
