An Open Door....

Today I am featuring one of my favorite stampers, my sister, Nancy! She has made some beautiful cards for me (and she is hoarding a lot more), and this is one she sent me for my birthday last year (yes, get busy on my card for this year -- only four more weeks!!). It says "How old would you be if you didn't know how old you are?" I think our all-time favorite set is Paint Prints (we each own more than one so when they wear out we will have another one!), the one she used here. Nancy used watercolor paper as the main panel to stamp on, thus giving the flowers more texture. She reads my blog, and will be surprised to see one of her cards! She is very creative and artsy. We have a great time when we stamp together (and are good at making a mess), but it's not very often, since we live 1500 miles apart! So I am opening the door, so to speak, for people to see what she does!

So let's hear it for this week's Featured Stamper!!


And speaking of doors, thanks for all the kind words about my photographs. Here is one I took recently (in my town). Not a "pretty picture" like the others, but an artsy one. I love the weathered, worn look of these doors!

Wow, I love that doorway too! Great mixture of bricks, greenery and weathered wood - cool :)

I really like the colors on your sister's card and your picture of the door is very nice!

I love all the "old" places around town that you have to take pics of. Great pic of the doors! Wow- I barely remember that card! Guess I'll have to get busy and top that one. And Paint Prints is my all time favorite set!
