This is Sandi in Belleville. Just saw your reply. This sure is a big state and I'm still not familiar with where the cities are. I moved here from Michigan 2 years ago this spring. I finally joined a Stampin' Up group just to be around some other stampers, but I really don't use too many of their stamps. I'm going with a friend to the stamp convention in Indianapolis this weekend. We are both really excited about the prospect of so many stamps and demos. Our closest local stamp store is actually an hour away in Kirkwood, MO. I loved the card you posted with the bird sitting in the punched branches. I help with the card ministry at my church once a month and that would be a pretty easy card for the ladies to do. I've never posted a card. Still have to learn how. Have fun stamping.
