Question Roll Call

Hi Everyone!


I thought it would be great to know who is part of this group - whether you chat in the monthly thread or just browse the information and then send cards....I would love to know who you are. So if you are comfortable, please post on this thread and include your name (first and last) and tell us anything you would like about yourself. Also, only if you are comfortable, I would love to have your mailing address. If you are willing to share that with me you can PM me or email me at [email protected].


I'll start us off....my name is Zella and I live in Ohio with my hubby (Russ) and our two furry children - Boots (who is pictured as my avatar) and Willow. I've been stamping for gee, has it really been over 10 years? Where has the time gone! My style has changed over the years. I used to try to do everything and thought I had to have every tool and every new gadget...but over the years I have learned that I'm really a basic card maker...I don't do a lot of layers or embellishments. I wouldn't say I'm CAS but very close. I also crochet quite a bit. I do work full time so my crafting time is limited but I do when I can and find it relaxing. I've come to love this group and am honored to be part of it and this great community.


My address:


Zella Turley
437 Bell St
Barberton, OH 44203



God bless you for all you do!!!

I would consider myself more of a "lurker." I participate every month sending cards, but rarely comment or post information. (As you can plainly see from the number of posts on my profile information) I just like to look. I live in E. PA.
I've been stamping and/or scrapbooking for about 20 years.
I hope more folks join in to tell about themselves.

I'm Diane. Live in Carolina Shores, NC - about 20 miles north of Myrtle Beach (originally from NY) - with my husband and my bichon, Mia. I have 2 sons who are both out of the house . Been stamping for about 20 years. I consider myself a plain and simple stamper - I don't use a lot of embellishments. I'm also Operation Quiet Comfort's Card Project coordinator which has been a past recipient of all your wonderful cards.

Nice to know more about you Zella and CJ Wink.

I hope everyone will join in and share a little about themselves.

My name is Jeri. I live in beautiful western Montana. I was born and raised here but have also lived in Colorado Springs, CO and Phoenix, AZ. I have been back in MT for 12 years.

I started stamping about 30 years ago. I always enjoy learning new things. I try to do many of the challenges here on SCS. I generally don't like my cards to be to bulky for mailing purposes. I also don't do too many techniques that are too involved of messy. I like to accomplish something in the time I have which sometimes seems very limited.

I am retired and I take care of my 90 year- old mother. She has dementia which can be challenging.

I have been on SCS for 10 years. The last couple of years I have enjoyed sending cards to Cards for a Cause. At first it was kind of sporadic, but now I try to make about 25 cards per month for the featured group.

I also try to send a card whenever some one has a card request on SCS. I really believe that cards can truly brighten a person's day.

Happy crafting everyone.

I like the idea of sharing a few personal things with this group. So far have enjoyed hearing about some of the group’s participants. I'm a Jersey Girl through and through. I’ve been married to John for 43 years and I have three sons, two of whom are married to wonderful young women who I love like my own daughters. My third son, for years, was with a beautiful young women who passed away from Cystic Fibrosis this past year – and he has, for a time, moved back home.

I’ve always “crafted” in one form or another (crochet, crewel, needlework, baking, wood working, to name a few) but have only been making cards for about 10 years. About 15 years ago I went through a very difficult time and began writing to release some of the pressure. I birthed two published books from that experience and when I decided to stop writing (being an author is way harder than it looks and it is not at all glamorous – LOL) I began making cards. I have a very stressful day job that requires a lot of concentration and detail to minutiae, so writing was like taking on a second full-time job. Crafting, in its many forms, allows me to use the creative side of my brain so that I relax. I refuse to sell any of my work, so there is no pressure.

I am a Christian who has been blessed in so many ways. I like to use my crafts to help others. I made 130 hats for homeless this year and, of course, you know how wonderfully this group serves many different organizations. I LOVE this group!

Thank you, Zella, for your enthusiasm and hard work in this group! My name is Rita and I live in Virginia with my hubby of 44 years and our collie, Buddy. I've been a card maker for 25 years. I love making and sending cards of encouragement. This is the first month that I've participated in Cards for a Cause and I hope to have the time to continue sending cards in the future.

I'm not normally one for these things - preferring to quietly slip into the background in support roles, running the other way when the spotlight turns in my direction, usually with Hubby leading the way.
I'm Gina, wife and HEA to Dan, and we are being drug painfully into our metal years - gold in our teeth, silver in our hair, and lead in our... well you get the picture.

We've a now-too-big home in SW Florida, the kids having abandoned us years ago! We're happy here, both on the short downhill slide towards Retirement. We're close enough we're looking for ways to stay active, instead of slipping into the dreaded 'retirement syndrome' of rotation through hospital and rehab and assisted care we see so frequently down here in Retired-folks-central.

I've always been a crafter - and imparted some of that love to my girls, who today both display crafty and creative tenancies. I went to the Annual Scrapbook Expo with my eldest this past spring, and hope to repeat that adventure next year! I've conquered crocheting, liquid stained glass, cake decorating, and spent quite a while with counted crosss-stitch and needlepoint, until it gave me headaches. Then i started with Scrap-booking, which quickly evolved into card making, and that's where I've been for several years, having amassed enough craft supplies to open my own store. I started with donations to Operation Write Home, and when she shut down found Split Coast Stampers.

We're both still working, i'm an IT Business Analyst supporting one location in a highly recognizable international company. In my spare time, around work and cooking and crafting, we're taking care of our last surviving parent, preparing slowly for retirement, and volunteering as much as we can with the Collier-Lee Honor Flight hub.

And Greatly appreciate this group and your tolerance as i run late on donations - Not lack of caring - just more time being co-opted by outside influences than I'd planned! But I love having somewhere to guide my creativity and where to send creations to!

And to quote Mel - That's All Folks!

I'm Sharon. I live in Michigan and am a widow. I have two adult children and retired. I have been cardmaking for about 15 years. I enjoy sending cards to C4AC, and I also participate in the weekly challenges. I belong to a travel group and do some day trips every now and then. Thank you, Zella, for all your hard work with this fantastic group.

Cathy Roler here. I'm another lurker. Married 48 years to my love, Mark. Living in Olive Branch, MS for about 14 years. I've always crafted, doing most kinds of needle arts but now concentrating mostly on quilting and making cards. Couldn't quite find my niche with cards until last year when I discovered dies! It's put the fun into making cards for me! I used to make cards for my dad to give monthly when he lived in senior apts. Now that he's gone, I found Bring Smiles to Seniors thru SCS and made my first donation of 129 cards (several months' worth) to them recently, and plan to continue. I've donated to a couple other causes too, so I never know what will strike my fancy. I have some health challenges that keep me home but I'm not crazy yet! Glad to be part of this group of generous givers.

Hello from Woodland CA outside of Sacramento. I am a lurker but have sent packages of cards to groups listed here on Cards for a Cause several times in the past few years. I am a scrapbooker and a SU! Hobby Demo, and sell cards at a local shop. Every few months I check out Cards for a Cause and go through my stash and put together a box.


Listening to a Scrapbooking pod cast today and one of the ladies mentioned how she wanted to create and actually send a handmade card to someone! She has stamps, is a scrapbooker but never actually created/sent a card! And she did comment on how special she feels when she finds one in her mail box.

Keep up the good work Ladies!

Hi! My name is Denise Dolder. I have been making cards for about 3 years now. Before that, I dabbled in crochet, knitting, and scrapbooking, but card making seems to be my crafty niche now. This will be my first time participating in cards for a cause. There are many times that I make cards without a particular person in mind and they end up sitting in my stash for a while, so this group will be perfect. Thanks for the opportunity to participate!

Hi! My name is Adriana and I live in Florida (you probably guessed that from my SCS name




i have always loved crafts but my favorite is definitely card making. I started about 15 years ago and can’t seem to stop!

I participate in the challenges here every now and then. It depends on how much time I have to craft and If I have given my cards away as gifts to friends! Probably my favorite C4AC challenge so far was the tag toppers for Brighter Smiles but it’s fun to have a reason to make so many cards for different reasons and occasions.

Default cards for a cause

I have been sending cards to the cards for a cause group for several years. I keep the names and addresses and send to them when the month is over. If things change , I sometimes get a note that the group is no longer taking cards, they then give the cards to a group they know who can use them or send them back. My name is Linda Wood I've been making cards since 2011. I live in Iowa I have never posted to this group as I don't know how to water mark my cards.

My name is Kathi and I've been stamping for about 15 years.  Like so many of you, I've dabbled in other crafts and I especially love counted cross stitch but just can't seem to find the time anymore.  I've participated in Cards for A Cause off and on for several years and love it.  I'm retired and live in Maryland with my hubby Dean of 21 years, we have three Golden Retrievers and a rat terrier who keep us on our toes!  I also have 2 adult children and 2 adult grandchildren from a previous marriage.  Thank you Zella for all you do for this wonderful cause!

Not sure where all those extra characters came from in my previous post, when I go to edit, they disappear!  I guess it's some kind of glitch at the moment!

Default sometimes, not always

My name is Terri, and I live in Ohio.  I'm legally blind (for 30 yrs), and I've been stamping since 2003 (when I retired with disability from teaching high school math).  Married 10 years, no children except for our three dogs.  Oh yeah, I volunteer at our local humane society (lucky to only have 3 dogs).  I make cards (instead of therapy), and they usually don't have a destination...that's what brought me here.

Hope I did this right.  It's been a while since I've been active on SCS.

I'm Mac, I live in W PA and I've been card making for about 40 years.  i started out with needle punch cards and using construction paper, then did some hand embroidery cards.  Found rubber stamping in about 1993 and now have a card ministry. I send cards to all our church members for birthdays, anniversaries, get well, congrats, sympathy, etc. plus I make and sell cards with proceeds going for our church Care Jar.  I am a member of Spellbinders small die of the month, I have 3 Cricut machines, a Slice, Gemini JR, Diamond Press and recently a Craft Buddy.  (My cricuts are the original baby bug, the first Expression, and the Special Anniversary Edition with the 4 preloaded carts).  I belong to a Stampin' Up Workshop and we meet once a month.  I send cards for Cards for a Cause, Teapot Tuesday and Soldiers Angels.  I haven't learned to upload a card, but hope to figure it out this year.  I'm not into heavy embellishments, mostly dies, and now the metal dies,  as anyone would guess by my machines.  Glad to be aboard.  I too do more lurking than posting.. but enjoy my retired time doing paper crafts. 

Mac

I'm Kate from NJ and have consistently (which is a big thing for me) contributed the last 2 years.  I'm a pre-school teacher and mom to 4 of my own so any chance I can get, I stamp!   I'm not too tech savvy, so I only post on Instagram (@katedeignancards)  I donate most of the cards I make to Cards for a Cause, Cardz for Kidz, Bringing Smiles to Seniors, Send a Smile 4 kids, and anywhere else I can find with a need (it justifies my spending!)  I've been card making for over 15 years now.   Thanks for all you do to keep us organized!

Happy Valentine's Day from chilly Lebanon, Ohio (it's 10 here this morning with a wind chill of 0)!  My name is Donna and I too do a lot of lurking.  Have been into stamping since 1995 when a neighbor took me to a Stampin' Up party.  I was hooked.  My husband of 43 years refers to my demonstrator as my dealer.  I love to try new techniques and really got into die cuts and embossing when I found a  Big Shot at Goodwill for $8! I am a member of a cat club that also exchanges cards. And am an avid birder and love to crochet.  Nice to see so many crafty people on this site.

  Oooo... and other Jersey Girl.  Not too many paper crafters in NJ. I'm for way up in Jersey (5 min from the NY border). You anywhere near there?

Hey friends! I'm a lurker here myself and I've been stamping and on SCS for several years. I really like the thought of having a place to send my cards out for a good smile to pass along. I'm not always able to participate because of time managment (on my part), but I sure plan on sending out lots of cards in the future as my time restraints will be changing in the near future. I love this online community group and what this particular challenge stands for. I really look forward to participating more!

I live in the midwest (about 40 miles away from the Mississippi River) and enjoy the changing seasons...yes, even the cold and snow! LOL! Thanks for keeping this challenge going every month!

Hi all,

I'm Sharon from GA. I'm usually more of a lurker/stalker kind of gal! I love stamping and have been a SU demo since December of 2012. I am my own best customer! My hubby and I have been together for 39 years and married for 31 in July. We have a soon to be 26 year old son.
Kate,I don't know if you remember but you are the one who got me started doing this. I saw your post on Instagram and some cards you posted got my attention. You directed me to Bring Smiles to Seniors and this group. I have been hooked ever since. I love to make cards! Mine are simple cards that I can make in bulk but I do like to do some fancier ones for friends and family.
Like most of us, I have more supplies than I will ever use. I've enjoyed going through things and using them or donating them. In addition to card making I love to scrap. I have temporarily put that on the back burner. I've had quite a few losses in the last few years and it is hard for me to pick up the pictures and start working again.

Hi everyone,

I'm from Fayetteville, Arkansas. I've been married almost 25 years to my best friend Jeff and we have two girls who are 17 and 19 who are crafty/artsy so I can get them to do painting or card-making with me sometimes. We have 2 cats, 2 dogs and 3 chickens. We enjoy feeding and watching the birds and squirrels too.

I've been visiting and posting on Splitcoast since 2004. My mom is my biggest stamping buddy and we share our ideas, creations and supplies. It's a wonderful creative hobby that I love sharing with her. I wouldn't say I have a "style" because I like all sorts of cards. Sometimes I love clean and simple and sometimes layered. I am drawn to flower cards and "happy" colors, especially yellow.

I can't believe after all these years, I hadn't looked into this thread to make cards for a cause, so I've just recently started participating. My goal is to make 10 or more cards a month for each monthly cause. I'm so impressed by you all who make 20, 30, 50+ cards! WOW! I also just started participating in the Teapot challenge which is wonderful too.

Thanks for organizing this and bring us all together Zella! And I enjoy "meeting" all of you here on this post!

Donna

Although I still think of myself as a New Yorker, I live in Southern California with my husband of 43 years, because I just cannot fathom living in a cold climate. No human children, but plenty of furry ones have graced our lives. Currently there are two: Ruby a sweet, angelic little Ragdoll and Ember a sleek, long-legged black streak of lightning. Then there is Red, our happy turtle, and all the surrounding wildlife we care for. I have been creating cards for well over 20 years. The ones that make me most happy are clean, simple, with little to no embellishments. For very special people or occasions, I will pull all the stops and create elaborate interactive cards. I also enjoy altering cigar boxes, constructing mini scenes within shadow boxes/tins, or building structures (this year my plan is to create mini churches for special friends this Christmas). Everything I create is given away, a main reason why I love C4AC -- I can go wild doing something I love and helping to put a smile in someone's heart. I am very recently retired, so there is more time than ever to create. I am very grateful for this group.
