In the Limelight!

A new month at Flourishes means a new face to introduce to the fans of Flourishes and a fond farewell to a very talented designer who has given us a glimpse into her creative world!

I don't know about you, but Asela Hopkins blew me away this past month with her stunning tutorials. I have always, always, always been a fan of her use of color. When you look at her work, you just see her art background in every creation! Thanks Asela! We've so enjoyed having you here in our "home" on the web!

Now.... an introduction of sorts! I've known this "Krafty Kat" for a while now and each time I see a new creation of hers, I think -- unique! She always puts a little something extra into her creations that makes you think.... 'Now, why didn't I think of that?'

So,without further ado, meet..........

We asked Jenny to share a wee bit about herself before she jumps in tomorrow with her first Limelight project!

A little about me..... I'm 36, married to the love of my life and we are completely controlled by one nine pound cat who runs our house. I just left my job after 15 years and plan on devoting my time to stamping/papercrafting and working with a local stamp store, Impressive Ideas. I am looking forward to having more free time and enjoying this wonderful hobby daily.

I originally was a scrapbooker, I have to admit... I would walk down the stamp aisle in the craft stores and think... "What??? I totally had no clue!". I slowly started embellishing my scrapbook pages with very simple stamp images. It was all stamping basics. I was a scrapbooker after all. Well, not too long after that, I went to a stamp show, thinking no biggie, I'll cruise around and maybe pick up a few small things. OMG! I saw stamping demonstrations everywhere I turned. I was amazed at the possibilities and techniques involved with stamping ..... and after several trips to the car to unload all my purchases........ my scrapbooking slowly ceased. I was hooked and a full blown stamping addict! Several years later, I am still totally addicted and loving every minute of this hobby. Sharing it with other creative minds is the icing on the cake!

I am thrilled to be working with Flourishes this month, the Flourishes artists really have knocked my socks off this year, creating some stunning images to work with. I immediately leaped for joy, did a happy dance and responded 'YES', when I was asked to participate! I hope the mojo doesn't go MIA! I look forward to sharing some creative ramblings and projects with you and I hope I don't disappoint!!!


Jenny, there's no way you'll disappoint! We know you'll rock it! :-) So come back tomorrow and see this Krafty Kat cooked up! I know I can't wait!

Thanks for stopping by!
