    Love seeing all your card creations. I’ve been a card maker for about ten years but mostly with scrapbook paper products, stickers, washi, etc…have not ventured into the stamping world until early in 2019. I still find it a bit overwhelming and quite often don’t really know what I’m doing, but I’m having fun.

    Wow–what a list of great folks willing to give to the community! Love what you do, thanks for participating. I have to say, despite staying at a game night party ’till 1:30(only 1 glass of champagne at midnight) I loved your Instagram of the singing last night. I hope to get through the list, but our son and DIL purchased their first house, I’m off to unpack/put away in the new kitchen–where the owners have left me “sticky notes” where everything goes!

    Cathy-although I am not a clean and tidy card maker like you are, I really enjoy seeing your creations and they inspire me to try to be clean and crisp in my designs. (I then usually spoil the effect by adding “stuff” to my design and making it decidedly more messy!). Keep on sharing your lovely work!
