Lee-Anne Cross - Shadow's Mom
Regina, SK
When I got a message from Lydia last month, and it mentioned the Dirty Dozen, my first thought was oh no...Splitcoast has been hacked and everyone got this message from Lydia! Then, I read it five times before it finally sunk in and I started to cry. Cannot begin to tell you how thrilled I am to be a part of this amazing site and the fabulous Dirty Dozen!

I started stamping a long, long time ago when a family friend with a commercial stamp shop introduced me to stamping and heat embossing. Do you remember the first time you saw heat embossing and how magical it felt? Well that did it for me! And, although I strayed away from it for a while. once I found Splitcoast, I was hooked yet again. The people I've met and the things I've learned on this fabulous site have all contributed to my craft and I am so, so thankful.

And, speaking of thankful...I have a wonderfully enabling hubby, Bryan. He is so supportive of everything I do, including stamping and the purchasing of the supplies I have amassed over the years *grin*. He's been through a lot this past year and has recently been declared cancer free. We have one son who is an amazing person and a talented computer guru. And we have one furbaby, a border collie named Kizzy. My Splitcoaststamper's name came from our previous furbaby, Shadow, who has long since passed, but I shall forever be Shadow's Mom!

So looking forward to the next six months in the dirt pile!!!
