What an exciting day, to become a member of the Dirty Dozen! I've always had so much appreciation for these crafty ladies and the support that I've gotten from this group over the years, has had such a wonderful impact on my creative path.

I'm a Christian from Tacoma, Washington and have been married for 30 years, with two grown children. My married daughter just had my first grandson, 11 months ago, making me a very happy grandma! I'm so thankful I get to watch him 4 days a week. My son is attending the University of Washington and plans to go to Med School.

I enjoy nature and travel and have been blessed to travel in Africa, Europe, and South America.

I began making cards for my family when I was 9 or 10, they were made out of construction paper and usually had a dog or flower drawn on them. In the early 90s I discovered Stampin Up and I was hooked! My greatest influences on my style were my grandmother, giving me my vintage floral style, and my daughter (and now my grandson), who inspires my Copic colored critters.
I discovered SCS in 2010 and have had so much fun playing along with all of the challenges over the years, this stamping community is so wonderful and supportive.
