Thank you

I want to thank everyone that posted a comment and emailed me privately sooooo much, it means so much to me.
I will try to figure out how to link each image used in my cards to Stamping Bella, so that you can find the images easier.

I thought that I would share these 2 cards with you.
All images, ribbon, baubles , crimper, 2" punch and card stock from Stamping Bella.
The purse card I coloured with bella spirits and Lyra coloured pencils.

The second card I used Copic markers.

I like to see how many different cards I can design with one sheet of patterned paper. In this card I used the scraps for the rain boots, the punched out flower and the umbrella.

all supplies are from Stamping Bella

My very first post

Hi there and Welcome ,

I am so excited to finally have a blog. Thanks so much to Vicky for making it happen.

Let me introduce myself, my name is Nicky and I am a confessed Stampaholic. My first passion is my family, wonderful husband of 35 years, beautiful daughter, daughter in law, son and the love of my life my 3 year old grand-daughter.

I started stamping about 9 years ago and shortly after I started I was invited to teach and have been teaching stamping classes ever since . Teaching has given me the opportunity to meet the most wonderful , amazingly talented people that share my passion of stamping and paper crafts.

I currently have the BEST Job in the world , I work full time as Creative Director and designer for Stamping Bella, where I also
teach stamping classes. Emily the owner and I met when she signed up for my stamping 101 class and the rest is history. We instantly bonded when we found out that we were both from Montreal and new mutual people. Emily reminds me so much of my daughter (which is getting her PHD out of town), that I just had to adopt her as my other daughter. Our adventures have led us to lots of laughter, great endeavors and wonderful stamps and products that we are so passionate about. I hope that through my blog I can share some of these adventures with you.

Please feel free to comment or ask any stamping related questions that you may have.

P.S. As you will soon see I am not very computer savvy, so please bear with me and let me know if I have broken any Blogging etiquette.
