Carla Murphy - cardsbycarla
Kingston, Ontario, Canada
I was so excited when I received the e-mail from Julie HRR inviting me to be part of the Dirty Dozen Design Team-what an incredible elite group of talented artists! It was without any hesitation and a huge grin on my face that I replied right away before the DDDT had a chance to change their minds!

My name is Carla Murphy MacDonald (cardsbycarla) and I have been stamping and making cards for almost 7 years. I only discovered SCS less then 2 years ago and what an incredible feeling to realize I had an entire world of inspiration right at my fingertips.

I work full time as a medical secretary in a military hospital. My days are crazy and hectic, but I love it. When there's an evening or weekend that allows time for some good 'ol card making, I find it's the best way to relax.

I can't even talk about "stamping" without mentioning my sister Denise. She is an incredible artist with such originality and an amazing eye for colour. We have a lot of laughs together trying to "out-do"each other and especially enjoy our outings of rubber-retail-therapy! Of course that can include a lazy afternoon of ogling the SU! Catalogue . . .

I am so genuinely excited about this invitation and really looking forward to all of the possibilities and challenges in this next six months!!!
