Inspired by Carla

Carla is an AMAZING Stamper! Have you seen her blog? If not, you really should follow her.....I just love her style! She can add layer upon layer to her cards and they are perfect! Not cluttered.......perfect!

I am a follower of her blog and have been a fan of hers from the first time we met.......yep! I'm fortunate to say that I know Carla fact, I've been her dealer in the past! The first time we met face to face was in the parking lot of a McDonalds! With descriptions of each others vehicles I watched for her look over my shoulder and I slipped into the front seat of her car and introduced myselfT! She wiggled with excitement to be receiving this package and I was just as excited to deliver................two fellow addicts.............dry hands and inky fingers..............the telltale signs of a Rubber Stamper!!! The Package? Several sets of Stampin' Up! Stamps

As we sat in the front seat of her car over a rubber cutting tutorial, we giggled at the funny nature of our meeting and made plans to hook her up soon with more supplies........perhaps we'd even enable some of her friends! I can't remember if I introduced her to Splitcoaststampers or if it was the other way around, but I do know that next to her, I was probably the most excited person to hear that she had been invited to be a part of the Dirty Dozen! See from that first meeting in the parking lot, I knew she'd be a renegade!!!! .....Anyway, she continues to inspire me with her beautiful creations........and I think that you will be equally inspired!

  3. Well Vicki - you just flat out made my whole entire day. What a sweetheart you are. Yes I remember that day - must be 8 or 9 years ago now... I think I've bought "a few" more supplies since then. Thank you so much for putting me onto SCS way back when - that special group of stampers were so instrumental in my continued "addicition". I love your card Vicki. Thanks for the lovely words, the trip down memory lane and the special post. You rock!!
