Jerri Jimenez - Jerri Kay
Tampa, FL
A little about me: I worked as a legal secretary from 1978 to 1990. I met my husband in 1979 when we were in college (Go Gators!). We have been married for 24 years; our Silver Anniversary is coming up in June. After we married, we moved to New Orleans where my husband did a four year residency in Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery. He completed his residency in 1987, and we returned home to Florida, settling in Tampa. When our first son was born, I became a SAHM. We have two sons; Stephen will be 18 in August and is currently waiting to hear from the colleges he’s applied to. Daniel will be 15 next month; he’s a freshman in high school and enjoys working out and playing football.

My hobbies include embroidery, cross stitch on linen, gardening, and stamping. I was introduced to stamping three years ago by a dear friend who had become an SU! demonstrator. I ordered an Earth Elements kit from her, and from the time I stamped my first image, I was totally addicted to stamping. Everything I’ve learned about stamping I’ve learned from SCS. When I first learned of this site, I spent morning and night pouring through the galleries and forums, reading technique after technique. I was a lurker for several weeks before I got up the nerve to leave a comment on a card. I finally got brave and uploaded a card, and then another, and another . . . well, you get the picture. A year-and-a-half ago I became a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator myself and enjoy teaching technique classes in my home.

I love being a member of SCS. I have grown tremendously in my stamping due to the influence of the very talented stampers I have met here. A warm thank you to everyone for your kind and wonderful comments on my cards. I am much honored to have been asked to become a Dirty Dozen Team Member and will do my very best to create cards and projects that will inspire your creative talents.
