Default Hello Everyone! Introduction....

I've been a registered user at this site for many years but I don't think I've ever posted before. I have several Auto Immune Diseases including Rheumatoid Arthritis and Multiple Sclerosis. The MS went incorrectly diagnosed for 10 years and finally got diagnosed correctly in October 2014. I started medications at that time and I am doing well enough now that I started making cards this year (2015) in June. I am a long time scrapbooker (18 years) so cards were a natural progression for me. I really don't scrapbook anymore and only make cards now. I love making cards and do all types but my style is classic and elegant. I do make more fun cards on occasion for my grandkids. I only started Blogging this past August 2015 but I am enjoying it and it helps me retain the cognitive function that MS tries to take away.

I'd really like to get involved in this community so if you have suggestions for how to do that let me know. I'm going to dash off to add some cards to the gallery.

TIA for reading this post!

Hi, Vicki, and congratulations on starting your new (and gorgeous) gallery! I'm so sorry to read about your physical issues and happy to read that you finally got diagnosed and now can make cards. They are really beautiful! Yes, I love blogging too and am glad to hear it helps you with your cognitive function. Looking forward to looking at the many cards you've uploaded already! A big welcome, and perhaps you might want to join a challenge - when you are ready - if you do. Hugs!
