I am married with 1 beautiful daughter and 1 handsome son and a lovely daughter in law.. I am a Nan to a beautiful boy Theo and a gorgeous girl Hallie I love to craft, cook and garden but most of all I love to papercraft with Card Making, Scrapbooking and off the page projects. I love using my Cricut Maker & Explore to enhance or embellish my cards or layouts. I am loving retirement but still need more time to be able to spend more time doing what I love.
