I have been stamping for nearly 20 years. After a couple of stamping parties and make and take sessions at local stores, I began to make cards. I am addicted to challenges...especially sketch challenges. I also have a large gallery at SplitCoastStampers where my user name is etsdas.
I am a retired French teacher. When hubby and I retired we became full time RVers. Now we live in Arizona year round. Unfortunately I have had less time to spend on cards, as I am a caretaker for my husband. He has limited mobility due to Parkinson's. I recently developed the wet type of macular degeneration in one eye. It makes coloring images difficult, so I use a lot of pre-colored digis and other designs.
My use of the sketch is pretty straightforward. I used items I received as a prize - and I now have a birthday card for a daughter-in-law.
