I was thrilled when I received the invitation to join this illustrious group! Every month I look forward to the reveal of wonderful cards. Once upon a time, about 15 years ago, a friend of mine said she had been making cards. I had no idea what that meant but went with her to another friend's house to make some myself. What fun it was! I was hooked immediately and signed up to be a Stampin' Up! demonstrator within days.

While my husband and daughter are rather neutral about my hobby, they do ask me to make cards for birthdays and other occasions to send to friends and family. The dog, on the other hand, loves helping me to make cards! And the cats enjoy sitting on my work desk to observe up close.
Before becoming a card making fiend, I served 26 years as an army officer, something I had wanted to do since I was 12. Since I retired I've worked for the Department of Veterans Affairs, Veterans Health Administration in the Office of Research and Development. I love what I do and am able to telework. Without having to spend 2 hours commuting into DC these days, I have some extra time for cards! Stay safe everyone.
