TEAM 2 DESIGN TEAM - SNEETCHES
Cardmaking is easily my favorite hobby and way to spend my extra time. I've taken it through a few different avenues, including teaching stamping in classes and being a guest designer for a couple of different companies and a challenge blog. I ventured out into the world of sharing on social media through my blog and on Instagram a few years back and I have enjoyed it very much!
I do one-minute videos about once a week on Instagram for the enjoyment of my followers to watch a card quickly come together. It's been a lot of fun!
I absolutely LOVE card challenges and how they stretch me to think outside the box with my designs! I found Double Trouble a short while back and think it is so fun to have 2 or 3 different prompts to be challenged by in making a card. I'm excited I was picked to be part of the DT with Double Trouble! I look forward to learning the ropes, offering my creativity, and helping however I can with the fun that goes out to all card makers with this challenge!
I am retired from the federal government where I worked as a cyber security program manager. I've been stamping using primarily Stampin' Up! products since 2000.
I am now "spreading my creative wings" designing and making handmade cards, and enjoying helping my three granddaughters become people that are fun to be around. I love to read science fiction, go hunting for geocaches, and travel the world on cruises. I also LOVE to learn new things... be it card making techniques, or new software programs to design cards!
TEAM 3 DESIGN TEAM - SNEETCHES
I am a lover of all things related to paper crafting and I am also a Close To My Heart Consultant (13+ years). My preference is creating cards because I like the smaller design although I do scrapbook and create home decor items as well. I make a lot of card sets to give to friends and also to pass along to patients at the hospitals I visit. They are always so thrilled to receive handmade cards that they can send to others - after all, there is nothing more personal than a handmade card :) Recently I have been experimenting with different stamping and background techniques and I look forward to using those ideas on my cards.
My background is teaching - I taught instrumental music and English for several years before leaving the school system. My first degree is in instrumental music and I sing in my church choir to allow me to continue with some form of music.
Design Team work has always been a source of enjoyment - I am currently on five teams, including this one and I also participate regularly in blog hops related to Close To My Heart.
I have a little 6 pound dog - a Morkie - name Mika. She goes most places with me and she is extremely friendly. She loves everyone and she is spoiled rotten.
I am looking forward to working with the Double Trouble Design Team - it is such a terrific challenge!
I live in Arizona with my dog, Pepper, (oh yeah, and my husband Jeff). I love doing challenges to help me be more creative and to see all the entries that give me ideas and inspiration. I am a big sports fan, especially baseball, and also spend a lot of time reading if I am not making something. I hope you enjoy my projects and they motivate you to join in our fun challenges!
