About Me

My photo
Hi, my name is Terri. I started crafting at an early age when my grandmothers taught me how to crochet and embroider on dish towels. Over the years I've tried many other crafting mediums, and have found my favorite in rubber stamping. My wonderful guy (Craig) supports me in everything I do........I'm very blessed!! I love learning new things and hopefully will inspire others to step out of their comfort zone and try a few new things. Thanks so much for stopping by....have a wonderful day!

Check out all their adorable images at their website. I wanted to make a springy card and use some things I haven't used in awhile, so this is what I came up with.  The fence die cut  was a gift, so I'm not sure where it came from. The little flowers are "stubby" stamps from Judith.  I daubered green for grass and made some clouds for a background.  Please visit our challenge this week to see some great inspiration from the other design team members and be sure to uplink your image for a chance to win a nice prize!!  Great to see you - thanks very much for stopping by!
