Stamp Art

I've come to believe there is an artist inside each of us just begging to be set free.  It's that need to create something of beauty.  For those of us who struggle to draw, rubber stamps are the perfect answer.
I have to admit, my first experience with stamping was not a good one.  The inks smeared or were picked up by another creation.  Repeated invitations to a Stampin' Up! workshop resulted in a new and grand experience.  I fell in love with stamping and can't imagine ever tiring of it.  I think that's because there is so much purpose in stamping--cards to encourage or comfort or minister in some way to others, scrapbook pages to share life and memories, decor items to add beauty to my home.  Oh, the list goes on!
I'm addicted!  And I long to share my addiction with others, to entice you to enjoy it as much as I do.  Hence, this blog, hopefully filled with inspiration and opportunities.
