Featured Artist Award - Mystery Challenge

3969Ctinyjoy {Cheri}
3970I began my card-making hobby a little over 4 years ago. I went to Mís and saw a sample using The Card Connection embellishments. I bought the supplies and totally cased the card. I went back a few days later and bought more supplies and their coordinating idea book. A few months later while visiting my sister she suggested I try adding rubber stamping on my cards. I reluctantly had her show me a few tips and that sparked my curiosity. This began my obsession with stamps. I would haul out my one tote every Friday night and create all weekend (in between housecleaning). Eventually the family grew tired of my living room set-up and we created my own area in the house.

I am blessed with two very unique rubber stamp stores not far from my house. Both owners are wonderful ladies who are extremely talented and creative. I love taking classes and sign up for as many as I can handle with my schedule. Last year I joined SU as a hobby demo to have fun with my friends. I enjoy swapping and sharing ideas/techniques. My co-workers also encourage my hobby and I enjoy making holiday gifts for them. Last year the Finance Director came to work one day with a coupon for a new store that was opening near his home. Sadly, it didnít stay open very long but he was a great enabler.

The Stamp Shack is a wonderful group of ladies who are supportive, caring and nurturing and I am very glad I am a part of it!
