Welcome to Magnificent Mermaid Thursday!
I’d like to introduce you to Shelley today and here's what she had to say ~
I have a wonderful boyfriend Mike, who encourages my obsession with crafting.
I have a 19 year old son, Larz, who just started college, majoring in Graphic Arts. We have a pet ferret named Nibbles and live in Nutter Fort, WV.
To support my love of stamping, I work at our local newspaper in the Classified Advertising Department.
I worked with a couple ladies who did a lot of rubber stamping. Then a lady I went to church with became a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator and I have been hooked ever since.
I guess, my favorite embellishment would be ribbon. I love satin ribbon.
My favorite stamp of Michelle's is Soulmates. It is the first one I bought and it is still my favorite, I love the verse with it.
My stamping style is probably erratic. I love so many different styles.
My favorite part of stamping is being able to create something. I love it when I give a handmade card and the receiver really appreciates it. I was at my little cousin's birthday party and her Mom was opening her cards and she announced to everyone that I make my own cards and how beautiful they are. I was very pleased that she truly appreciated them.
My favorite non-card type project is scrapbooking. That is how I really got started. I love taking pictures and putting them together on a layout, it is so much fun.
I have not been published yet.
I love to use colored pencils and blend with baby oil, I love the look.
I started my blog Shelley’s Creations in February of this year. My blog is mostly cards, every once in a while I throw in a scrap.
We have one of Shelley's beautiful cards for you to enjoy today!
Don't forget our current challenge featuring Operation Write Home, you still have a few days to get in on the fun! You can check out the challenge here.
I hope you enjoyed getting to know Shelley a little better as much I have!
