I remember many years ago - about 19, I believe - I received a hand stamped card in a secret pal-type swap at work. I looked and looked at that card because I knew it was "different" but it took me a little while to figure out why. It was pretty and wonderful....and hand made! I'd never seen stamping like that and had no idea how it was done. So, when I found out who the maker was, I asked her about it. And now....she's my dear, dear friend so many years later!
She put together a beginner stamping class for a group of us from work and we met at her house one afternoon. I remember being so excited - I ran to the craft store to buy my very first stamp and a stamp pad to take with me to her house. It was just the beginning!!!! From that one stamp and that class.....I now have a room full of stamps and supplies, have been a CTMH consultant for 10 years this month, and still love it as much as that first afternoon!
It's so fun to share the cards I make and to teach others how to do it....I can't imagine ever stopping!
Hope you all have a wonderful day!
