Hello There


You know what?  Last week marked my two year anniversary with Stampin' Up! and  I'm happier now than I was two years ago.  Not that I was unhappy then, but my life just seems more colorful.

I receive inspiration from the people around me… especially my Circle of Pals and my Pretty Pals.  It is so easy to make a card from a sketch challenge like Pals Paper Arts, Freshly Made Sketches, or Mojo Monday.  You can check out every sketch challenge I've ever entered here.

I love sharing my craft with you and especially with those who have never made a card in their life.

As a favor, I'm asking you to forward this post (by clicking on gray envelope in the middle below this post) to your family & friends who you think would love to put a quick and easy card together, so they can then send it to someone that could use some sunshine.  It's okay to submit a request yourself if you've never made one.

During my deployment I received dozens of cards and they made me feel loved.  It humbled me deeply to know you were thinking of me.  They brightened my day when I was feeling sad being so far from home.  As my journey comes to an end in a few days I'm hoping to pay it forward and allow someone to experience the same feeling I had.

If you have received this post by someone you know click here to submit your information and I will send you a FREE do-it-yourself (DIY) card kit, so you too can brighten someone's day.  *U.S.. addresses only.
