I am a Bronze Elite, Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator, living in Florida with the most marvelous man in the world (Dick). I raised 3 boy-children that have blessed me with 4-wonderful grandkids 2 girls and 2 boys. I have always enjoyed paper crafting. As a child (many years ago) I was an avid scrapbooker way before it ever was a paper craft! I was thrilled with the introduction of "today's" scrapbooking in mid 1980's and was introduced to cardmaking by a fellow scrapbooker. My fellow scrapbooker, now a BFF, introduced me to Stampin' Up and I was hooked . My interests besides card making and scrapbooking are cooking, reading fiction and sharing my love of paper crafting with friends and family.
