Do you have a craft room or specific area where you stamp?
Yes, I have what used to just a scrapbook room, but has become a major card making room.
Stampin’ up-because a very special lady in my life that survived cancer sales that product and any time I can spend with her is a blessing!
Do you have a favorite technique?
No, I love to try all kinds of things.
I love all those, too, how boring am I! I LOVE LOVE LOVE browns, outdoors type motifs like camping stuff but I love flowers, too.
Truth? Card Maker magazine about a year and half ago. My nephew had just joined the Marines, my beagle of 13 years had passed and I wanted to give my time and thoughts to someone else….I prayed about anything I could do, and viola! Within that week, I read the article about Cards for Heroes! With 2 nephews now in the service, I am all the more motivated! What you all do is such a gift.
Like I said previously, in part my nephews, but also the thought that somehow a card can reach a lonely wife, a child that misses dad or mom or a mom that misses her child. I remember when my nephew joined the Marines; I got one letter during boot camp. He had no punctuation anywhere because he had to write so fast to be able to complete a letter before they were made to stop for the night! That letter meant the world to me, I scrapbooked it to keep it forever safe! I can only imagine how much more a card means to someone getting it from family overseas!
