Featured Cardmaker: Nancy F, Trexlertown PA


I am so honored be a part of the Stars & Stripes Blog! I first found out about Operation Write Home (it was Cards For Heroes) when it was featured in the Readers Reach Out section of Cardmaker Magazine approx. two years ago and have been hooked ever since.

A small corner of an enclosed porch was dedicated to my stamping/card making habit, and everything was quite manageable and neat, until Heirloom Productions starting having their Mid-Atlantic Rubber Stamp Festivals ten miles from my house. This caused considerable mayhem and my craft area has now taken over the entire porch…......
My earliest stamp sets (not counting the 1965 Flintstones set) are foam backed and from Personal Stamp Exchange (1980’s?). I’ve been at this for quite some time and I can‘t imagine not having an artistic outlet, it’s my therapy at the end of a rough day.



Even with the ridiculous amount of stamps that I own, I sometimes find it hard to get started and I worry that Dixie is always seeing the same stuff from me. When I am totally stumped and can’t select something, I usually reach into my Snoopy drawer. You can never go wrong with Snoopy!

Your cards are terrific and I sense another Cuttlebug fan.

Hello Nancy, nice to meet a fellow Pennsylvanian! We don't live all that far from one another actually, so I'll consider you a neighbor :)I live just outside of Pottstown.
Your cards are all great and I love the embossing you added to them. Have a great weekend!

Hi Nancy, I love your cards and enjoyed reading what you wrote. I'm relatively new to OWH and learn a lot from cards like yours!

Nancy - WOW!!! You got some talent girl :) I can't imagine anyone not being thrilled with each and every card...

Love all your cards BUT - you rocked the truck. I can almost 'feel' the rest. Love it.

Hi Nancy,
Wonderful cards! Another PA girl here, also not too far from you (Hi Little Inspirations!). I'm in Stroudsburg. I recently learned about OWH and am still working on my 1st package of cards to send. This is such a wonderful organization, everyone is so helpful and friendly. I'm so glad to have found them.

Wonderful cards by an expert, I'd say! Thanks for sharing them and your story.

Terrific work on all of these cards. I particularly like truck card. It's all so perfectly coordinated right down to the screw and ribbon embellishment. Great!

The combo of embossed paper piece and decorative print piece is really cool!

From Proud Mom of Nancy.Her cards are all spectacular. Have all she has made for me. Artistic talent runs in the family & she got a super share.

I have to say, that card with the milk can is my favorite, Nancy. Your cards are always a treat to see!

Nancy that's when I got started. Saw the same article and thought I'd send out a few cards. Little did I know I'd still be doing it.

Nancy your cards are gorgeous! I think my fav is the one with the Diamond Plate Cuttlebug embossing folder, very masculine!

Marianne  – (July 24, 2010 at 2:50 PM)  

Nancy,
What great cards. I love the colors and ribbon.

You go girl!!!! So proud to be your friend (of 44 years, I might add) Keep up the good work, I know you are making a difference in many lives. You could not have chosen a better endeavor!
Love, Cindy

hi from another PA girl and gee, I don't live that far from you either.... I'm so glad to see your great work get some much deserved recognition --- I'm very proud to be a part of OWH with you and there's definitely never been a dull moment being your stamping buddy all these years
