To say I am overwhelmed would be an understatement! Thanks to whoever it was who nominated me to be Spotlight Stamper of the Month.
I have been stamping and making cards for 15 years now. My daughter went to the USA for work with her husband and I inherited her stamps, LOL . How lovely.! I had seen Spruce Goose stamping back in the 1980’s and loved it then, but I was doing study so of course stamping was put on the back burner.
I absolutely love stamping and making cards of all kinds really, but oriental would have to be a favourite of all time. It is so versatile and looks so elegant when finished. I became a parchment teacher 2/3 years ago and really love that style of card. It suits oriental cards exceptionally well, I feel. I think that these two modes of card making will be what I do till I no longer can keep the hands steady enough. 🙂
I have been a crafter most of my life. Knitting and crochet in earlier years as it was easy to pick up and down with a daughter. Also being on a dairy farm, and time was very short , then as I said studying for my VCE when I was about 40 which was enormous fun. Huge life changes when I was 45. I embarked on a new life with a new man who indulges my love of stamps, etc. He is my fiercest critic as well, although a fair one. My favourite stamp company for oriental would have to be Artneko, but also Onyx Impressions when that was operational. I haven’t seen them around now for some time.
I have four daughters, one mine, and the other 3 are step daughters, with 10 grandchildren to keep us busy as well. I had a lull in cardmaking for the last year or so, operations, etc. And moving house kind of took away the fun and interest. But now its coming back and I am looking forward to the next 50 years. LOL
Again thanks for taking the time to read this scribble. I hope you enjoy my cards.
