When Wendy Wyman was just 4 years old, she announced that she was going to be an artist when she grew up. Many years, and many sketchbooks later, she had earned a BFA in Graphic Design. For the next 11 years found Wendy worked in advertising, freelancing, and ran a printing company. And then it happened...Wendy's mom became a stamping addict, and the rest was history! It was Wendy's mom's encouragement that led her to turn her illustrations into fine art rubber stamps.
Wendy's husband, Bill, was also looking for a career change, and jumped at the idea of learning a new skill. And so....in 1996, Wendy Wyman, and her husband Bill Welsh established Repeat Impressions Stamps. Each stamp is designed by Wendy, and manufactured by Bill in their home workshop!
Today, the Rock Stars design team for Repeat Impressions, have joined together for a special hop for Wendy's Birthday!
We are hoping Wendy loves ATCs, so we've changed things up - instead of cards, we all created ATCs for Wendy. They were mailed to Cheri, one of our Rock Stars, who has created a wonderful album for them, and sent them on to Wendy. (ATCs are Artist Trading Cards sized to 2.5 by 3.5 inches.)
Wendy, you are one of the sweetest, and most generous people we know. As a 'boss', rarely do we find ourselves on a team that is more professionally run, or more organized! You are so understanding of our personal issues, and it's a joy to work with you and your products!
We want to wish you a very Happy Birthday!
We look up to, admire and respect you.
May your day today be filled with love and laughter!
And remember....the more candles you have, the bigger the wish you are allowed!
Here are my ATCs for Wendy:
Please hop along to see the fabulous projects my fellow Rock Stars have created for Wendy!
