A Stroke of Luck!
I had a stroke a few years ago, so to give me an interest, my daughter bought me a computer, I scoffed at the idea of using it, but she bought me a printer a CD and it got me started on card making.
I have used mostly Hunkydory and I think they are great, but ... I found Christina Griffiths, quite by chance, now I am completely hooked.
Wish I had found your tutorials before. I have bought so many spellbinders dies. I have tried to get some of the heartfelt dies that you use, but so far no luck. I would like to get some of the verse stamps you use, can you help.
My dining room is now my craft room. I am 83 so we don't entertain now. We have a kitchen diner so friends enjoy a cup of tea and a chat in there. I really enjoy reading all the letters, and seeing all the handiwork of other crafters.
I use my Grand Calibur and I also have a Cuttlebug. My husband and family bought me these, they say it's easy to buy me gifts now because they can get me anything to do with card making.
I only make for family and friends and this keeps me quite busy.
I used to watch the craft shows on television all the time, but now I just click onto Christina Griffiths.
So thank you so much. I also liked your own story of your life up to 2012. Sincerely Maureen x
Christina says ...
This is a lovely troy Manure and I am glad that making cards has given you a whole new hobby and helped you to get over the stroke that you had.
I am also very happy to read that I have played a small part in that too ... but mind you don't get square eyes watching all those videos.
Whenever I make a card I add it to the Blog pages ... Flowers, Ribbons and Pearls ... and on there you will always find the links to any supplies that I use.
So if there is a particular stamp that you like then click the link on the blog page and it will take you to their website so that you can see what it is like.
Now all I need to do is persuade you to take photos of the cards you make and then add some to the Gallery page here on the website
I am sure that your family will help you with that and if you don't have a camera then maybe that would be another idea for a Christmas Gift ... just drop a few hints around and maybe Father Christmas will bring you one xx
