About Me

My photo
Midway, NC, United States
I retired from Bali Bras, Sara Lee Intimates. Married in Oct 1976. I love meeting new people so hope to hear from you. Drop me a line. I've been doing crafts of all kinds since I was a kid. I loved making things and especially things that are recycled. I had never stamped until 2001 when I went to a stamp class while on vacation. We went to a local store to buy the stamps we had used. OUCH. When we got home I saw a Stampin Up catalog and realized how much money I could save with their stamps and best part as they are sets that go together which makes for easy card making. After doing some thinking I decided I should sign up as a demo and see what happens. I didn't know the first thing about stamping and still learning. Retired from Sara Lee Intimates in Feb 2001. I was in sales after many years, since age 18, as an office person, secretary, office assistant, etc. I am out of Stamping Up since Spring 2017 but still have lots of supplies!!!! These days I'm back to quilting and having a great time.

Sharing some cards from friends

Angie Nifong sent me this card when Don's mom passed away. I just love Lovely as a tree. Of course Don loved this card as it was a 4 x 6.

another Kay Bray card I believe. Kay used to send her cards with the note on a sticky so I could then mail the card to someone else. NOT as you can see.

Lynn Rowan of Louisana made this card using bleach technique. Never comes out the same as it depends on dye lot, paper, amount of bleach. Be careful when working with the bleach.

Allyson Buie of stamp club sent me this card.

Jane Peters of Alabama sent me this card. Can't go wrong with Season's Greetings.

Rhonda Johnson normally works on her cards at our annual crop. i love how this looks on vellum. Embossed image in white.

Chris Marko sent this soft card. Great way to use up those odd scrap pieces, dk purple. The basket is popping pastels.

Tammy Howell sent me this card. I love the white gel pen. It makes those background flowers pop. Coloring can be so much fun.

I don't drink coffee but I love coffee cards. Ok, this could be hot chocolate. This was sent to me by Kay Bray, fellow SUD.

How cool that Beth Dodds did this wreath with snowflakes. That's out of the box thinking.

This card made by Lynn Rowan. Ooops didn't realized it had slipped. Of course the card with tree should be more centered on the card. Very nice work.

Just sharing a few cards I ran across. Sad to say I didn't write down who had sent these. Use them for inspiration. If you don't have the same colors or stamps, improvise. Change it up a bit.

If you see your card let me know as I forgot to write down who some were from. Took pics of the cards before I left. Some were from swaps.

I believe this is a card we made in class one year.

My Blog

May, 2009 when I started the blog and it's still a learning experience even in 2017.

If you are ever looking for a retired stamp set, ask me, I might have it and let it go.

As a follower you'll get emails when I post things which I tend to do in batches, once or twice a month once I get back on schedule.

Thanks for stopping by and I appreciate all comments.
