Cards, Cards and More Cards

So I have come to the realization that I am a cardmaker at heart. Yes, I started over ten years ago with a few rubber stamps and ended up with about a million Christmas cards. Yes, I participate in several online card blogs and need to create projects for them. But at the end of the day, when I sit down to work the most natural projects that come from my mojo are lumpy, bumpy, fibery (is that a word?) and layered cards. I really love it! I won't give up scrapbooking my family and the special memories we share, and I won't deny that Mod Podge runs through my veins. (Cheryl, did you see that?) Anybody need a card?

i'm right there with ya girlfriend! i think i will always make a LOT of different things...but...cards...!! they are practical, they are necessary, they are (relatively) fast, they can be in a different style every time! what's NOT TO LOVE??!

(ps: i think "fibery" is a word...but one generally applied to nutritious, sugar-free breakfast cereals!) (but i know what ya mean!!!) :)

You are the Card Queen Jolene. I love this card and if fibery isn't a word, then it should be.
