Hello and welcome to Karen's Kreative Kards! I discovered card making in the spring of 1999 and have been totally addicted to this awesome hobby ever since. I am recently retired and am having so much fun sharing card making ideas on my blog and in classes I teach in my home and at a local stamp store. I am blessed to have two grown children, two sweet grandsons, a loving and tolerant husband, and some special stamping sisters in my life. I am on several design teams including a charitable blog I own called Send a Smile 4 Kids, where we collect and distribute handmade cards for children inpatient in many children's hospitals. I have been honored to have hundreds of my cards published in national stamping magazines and dozens of full length articles on stamping techniques published by Scrap and Stamp Arts.
