Guest Designer



I live in Sunny South Florida with my wonderful husband Scott, 7 year old daughter Ansley, 5 year old son Ryan, and our furry friend Princess (a Yorshire Terrior). I have been stamping for 3 years and blogging for 2 years. Stamping quickly became my hobby. Than my hobby became my obsession. So this past fall, I turned my obsession into a dream! I opened an on-line stamp store called Stamp and Create!! I also Co-Own Wags ‘n Whiskers Rubber Stamps.

Although running the store is “work”, I love that I can do the best thing I know at work…stamping!! I am on four design teams and I love playing along with challenges. I am so excited to be a guest for Christmas Stamping All Year Long. I love the idea of creating Christmas cards all year so that I am not overwhelmed at the end of the year. I love the motivation from this challenge to stamp my Christmas cards “All Year Long”!! Thank you so much for the opportunity to play along!! Happy Stamping!

Thank you again so much for this chance!!

When I read the recipe, I thought the cards would look so much alike. I was wrong! I can't wait to start mine.

Sorry I couldn't participate in last week's gift challenge...I will be making that purse. Thanks for the tutorial.
