My love of paper crafting :)

I have been a member of STV since 2009.  That was when I made my first GKD purchase and was hooked on her wonderful product.  

The first couple of years I was just a crafting 'stalker' looking at all the lovely cards made by so many of you.  I was afraid to even make comments, much less post pix of my cards, and now I love to enter challenges.  Go figger!  :)  

I know I have a lot to learn, but you all make me feel so welcome and give me so much encouragement. 

Stop by my blog and say Hello :) Be sure to leave comments and sign up for email notifications :)

Hello, sweet Karen -- You sent me such a lovely and sweetly made card!!! Thank you dear one! I just adore the butterflies with their bling, the striped pattern paper, and your heartfelt note inside on the vellum. Thoughts of you, hoping you all are healing, and wishing you comfort. Much thanks, more than you can know! With aloha, Rosy
