Handmade Birthday Card Pressie from My Sister!

I'm always excited when I get a card from my sister as she is totally responsible for my developing cardmaking as a hobby!  Way back in 2009 when she opened her scrapbooking store in Redding, California, I became hooked.  I started out going to classes in her store while I was visiting our Mom two times a year and also giving them a hand with computer work developing an Excel program for tracking her income and expenditures.  First, I only made cards from her kits; then I expanded by adding a few tweaks to her kit cards to make them more me.  From there, I started creating my own card designs and little by little I've developed my own style (which is varied, I'd say).  I love my six-year old hobby!

Heidi loves Papertrey Ink products, and this card shows off one of their newest kits which includes a foursome of stamps and dies called Nostalgic Notions.  I particularly love the inside very large scallop rectangle with the matching dotted border stamp traveling along the scallops.  I'll have to share the inside so you can see what I mean!

Thank You, Heidi, as always I love my card!
