Caroline Stender - Carolina
I'm just thrilled to have been asked to be a Dirty Dozen member! I've enjoyed SCS thoroughly and have been inspired by so many here!!

My name is Caroline Stender, AKA Carolina on SCS. I'm a SAHM...Floral Designer before children, but I still do 4-6 weddings a year out of my home. I have been blessed with a wonderful and supportive husband, Mark. We celebrate 12 years in June. We have 3 beautiful children, 2 girls and a boy. Our girls are Madeleine (6 1/2) and Annika (almost 5, her name sounds like Monica) and our little baby man Carson is now 1-1/2.

Three and a half years ago a friend of mine invited me to a SU workshop. I didn't even want to go, but thought I'd go for moral support. Little did I know I'd be signing up as a Demo that night!! I've always enjoyed drawing & painting, but never thought rubber stamping would be for me. Somehow I felt like it was going to stifle my creativity~LOL.....All of us stampers know that's not true!!

I thank the Lord everyday for the ability to create. Stamping has given me an opportunity to minister to friends at church by sending a note of cheer to someone who's sick, brightening someone's day with a cello bag filled with treats, and sharing techniques with our MOMs group.

The Bible says in Acts 20:35 "It is more blessed to give than to receive." I feel very blessed indeed!
