I'm from Westminster/Denver, Colorado and have been stamping and making cards for almost 2 decades. Unfortunately I am better at collecting new items to add to my stash than I am at using all of my goodies on new cards. Plan to change things in 2018!

I adore that watering can of flowers that you made!


Thanks for a great inspirational 2017 and have a healthy, happy and creative 2018!
A little bit about myself, My name is Henriëtte, I live in the Netherlands and I love craft since I could hold a pencil and scissors. Making cards, playing with inks, colour etc. is my joy and little point of rest. Unfortunately I got last year verry sick and am now in rehab, so no more energy for my craft but still for gorgeous blogs like this. However there is light on the end of the tunnel, I am getting stronger and hope this New Year is a New Beginning for me. Babysteps are also steps is my motto.


I live in Kentucky and am brand new to stamping and card making. I have yet to even receive my own LIST of "starter" supplies. This blog hop has given me a small chance to win supplies I can't afford. But a huge amount of inspiration & places for help once I do receive my items.
Thank you for your generosity - the prize pack is AMAZING - & participating in the Blog Hop!

Angela Walters

Hello! I am Angela and I live in Decatur, Illinois. I love to stamp and make cards. It is a challenge because I have a severe back injury that keeps me in bed most of every day. when I get to stamp, it’s a very special time because I can’t do it every day. I try not to get stressed when I’m stamping but just enjoy the times hen I get to do it!


I live in Raleigh, NC and I love plannering, cardmaking, scrapbooking, collage, and stitchery (though I'm not very good at it. That's okay, it's still fun. :)) I'm a writer and I love animals and have worked in rescue, dog training, and more. I currently foster rats for a small animal rescue in the area. I also foster hamsters, gerbils, degus, chinchillas, mice, and other "pocket pets". They end up in the shelters too and if you think puppy mills are bad, you should see where pet stores get these animals. Too many people don't even know rescuing is an option when it comes to small animals but there are lots and lots of these pets in need almost everywhere. We give them love, vet care, and foster care until they get adopted into the right home for them. They're great animals!

Pamela Palm

Hi Debbie
I'm Pam and I live in Michigan, where it happens to be pretty cold right now and we actually have a base of snow on the ground. I love snow but would rather it wasn't going below zero every night, 20 degrees would be about right. I love to make cards and occasionally venture into ATC's and altered books. Your give away looks like it contains things that are just my style as I am trying to collect all the colors of the Nuvo Glimmer paste. I'm following you on Pinterest too!

Paulette Still

Hi Debbie! I’m Paulette from Springfield MO area. I am in the Spring of my 50’s, wife, mom and Nana to my honey bugs. I’m a complete stamp and die-0-holic and I want everything. My favorite companies are MFT, Lawn Fawn, PTI, Simon Says Stamp, Hero A., Sizzix, AccuCut Craft and more! LOL. I love card making and gift box/bag dies. Copic and Watercolor are my favorite ways to color my images. I love blogging on WordPress and sharing my crafts. I love DIY too. Sewing and Painting used to be my go to crafts, but card making is my niche. I gift most of my cards. I even like to make my own stamps from the extra rubber trimmed from stamps like Stampin’Up! Images. I like to follow crafters via email, so I get the goods right into my mail box. I have been following JMcGuire for a long time and in the last couple of years stopped storing my products by Company and store by “Category” (IE: Guy, Woman, Child, Animal, Floral, etc) and it makes crafting easier since everything is in one bucket (stamps, dies, punches, embossing folders) for that peticual category. Thanks for getting to know Me. Happy New Year!

I live in Massachusetts and love card making! You have a great blog. Thanks for the chance to win.

Pat Jandacek

I live in northern FLorida having moved from south FL earlier this year. I've crafted all my life and each craft led to another craft to (presumably) add to the current one. E.g. Cross-stitching made me take up calligraphy so I could cross-stitch my own 'writing.' Haven't cross-stitched since. I was into Calligiraphy for 18 years before a calligraphy friend introduced me to Stamping for which we would use our calligraphy for expressions and...SO much easier & quicker to stamp the message also. Haven't done calligraphy for the last 23 years because Stamping became primary. I come from a large family so cardmaking for major holidays has become a major time-consumer and everyone looks forward to receiving my cards & most keep them. How could or why would I ever give up Stamping?! My step-daughter, niece, and daughter-in-law now all stamp, though each lives distantly from me it bonds us. And each of us is fortunate enough to have dedicated space for this wonderful art outlet.

Michele Smith
