Featured Cardmaker: Cindy E., El Cajon, CA

Hello everyone! This week I'm excited to introduce you all to Cindy and to be able to share some of her beautiful cards. Cindy is a StampinUp demo and blogs regularly at Heart's Delight Cards. Of course you can leave her some love at the end of this post but be sure to pop on over to her blog for lots more of her inspiring work.

How long have you been stamping?
My BFF got me hooked about three years ago. I still don't know whether to credit her, or blame her, lol.

Do you have a craft room or specific area where you stamp/craft? Craft room! It helps being an "empty nester"...I have a whole room all to myself!!! And, at the rate I'm going, I'm going to need another room before too long.

What are your favorite stamp/craft products?
Well, as a Stampin' Up! demo, I love all things Stampin' Up! of course. I'm particularly fond of embossing folders, and the Designer Series Paper coordinates so well with the colored cardstock that it's hard to go wrong! The colors are all so yummy!

Do you have a favorite technique?
It changes all the time! Right now I'm loving the inlaid embossing technique - you can get so many different looks with it.

Are there colors you love to include on your cards?
That's another thing that always changes. I think this is more season-related for me. After the holidays, I'm ready for bright, fresh spring/summer colors. And just about the time I'm getting bored with them, the new autumn colors are out, and they become my new favorites. As you can see, it's constantly changing!

How did you hear about Operation Write Home?
You know, I'm not really sure about that. I'm fairly sure I saw it on someone's blog, clicked to get more information, and immediately wanted to join in.

What motivates you to make cards for our heroes?
My father is retired military, and my husband is a veteran, as well. I know first hand the sacrifices the families make, along with their deployed loved ones. It makes me feel good that, in some small way, I can help keep families in touch. I wish I had the time and $$ to do much more!!!

Cindy, All really great cards. I can't pick a favorite. I also was a SU demo. It was fun while I was doing it. Thank you for sharing your beautiful cards with us.

Wonderful cards! The yellow hello is my favorite because how you incorporated the sentiment into the image is so darn cute! Thanks for sharing!!!

Being the BFF that got Cindy's mojo flowing, I just have to say how proud I am of her. Cindy, your talents are many...these beautiful cards are just one. Your love for your friends, family, country and the men and women who serve us is what makes you the very special person you are. Thank you so much for being who you are! BFF

This is a gorgeous group of cards Cindy. My favorite if you forced me to choose that is, would be the first one. I love the striking black and white with the bold color. I always enjoy visiting your blog for inspiration and I am glad to be able to have you share your cards here on the S&S blog this week. Thanks for being a part of the OWH family!
