Featured Friday Card Maker: Ruth L, Post Falls, ID
Hello everyone! This week is another example why I love to hear the stories of our cardmakers…Ruth may live in Idaho now, but she grew up a stone’s throw from me! Small world 🙂 Ruth doesn’t have a blog, but she is on Pinterest! I got lost on her boards – she even has a bacon board like me. I knew I liked her! 🙂 Okay enough of me being chatty – enjoy Ruth’s cards, and leave her some love! -Sandy
How long have you been stamping/card making?
I’ve been stamping about 15 yrs. my sister, Robin Goodson, started stamping about 15 years ago. She kinda took me under her wing and showed me how to do it. In fact, she still has the very first card I ever made!!! She lives about nine miles from me here in Idaho and we get together quite often to stamp and exchange ideas.
Do you have a craft room or specific area where you stamp/craft?
Yes I have a stamp room (but don’t ask for pics! LOL)
What are your favorite stamp/craft products?
My favorite stamps are Stampin’ Up, Art Impressions, Endless Creations & Hero Arts just to name a few!
Do you prefer digis or stamps?
I prefer stamps.
Do you have a favorite theme?
No favorite theme – guess I mostly like them all.
Are there colors you love to include on your cards?
No particular colors – all of them are good!
How did you hear about Operation Write Home?
I heard about OWH from my girlfriends.
What motivates you to make cards for our heroes?
Gosh, what motivates me to make these cards – how can I not. Our heroes are out fighting for us, trying to keep us all safe. The least I can do is make them some cards to send home to their family and friends to say Hi, I love you, miss you or whatever they want. Besides, it makes me feel really good inside to do this for them.
