Creative Blog Hop

Today is Monday and my demo friend Toni Tessler asked me to join her Blog Hop today, so I thought it would be a lot of fun. I also want to share Toni's blog and Kim's blog.  First, I need to post the latest project I've been working on and then answer a few questions about my creativity.

This is a pleated gate fold card that I discovered how to make on another blog.  The first picture shows the inside of my card using the SAB 2015  BIG DAY Stamp set and second shows the front using the BUTTERFLY THINLET on a belly band.  I'll be doing a similar card at my workshop this weekend. So after the weekend, I hope to show the instructions on how I made this card and post another one that I made.

Now to answer the questions about my creativity:
1.  What are you working on now?  Recently, I have been working on SAB and Occasions cards.  I do swaps each month and the theme for February is baby cards or kid's birthday, so working on a lot of those.  I am also going to do some Spring and Easter swaps this month.  I had a friend lose her 14-year old dog to cancer, so making a sympathy card for her. Hope to post a lot of those in the next few days after I get them mailed and they are received.
2.  How does your work differ from others in your genre?  My creations are mostly quick and easy, but also like to have that WOW technique to go along with it.  I don't use a lot of ribbon or buttons, but love using embossing folders, Framelits, dies and thinlets with the Big Shot. 
3.  Why do you create what you do?  I have always enjoyed all kinds of crafts such as quilting, tole-painting, calligraphy, etc. but stamping has always been a fascination for me even before I became a demo with Stampin' Up!   I love sharing what I create with others and love meeting new friends who share the same love of stamping that I do.
4.  How does your creativity work?  I love looking at the other blogs and Pinterest to get ideas of how to make certain cards and then I will either case it exactly or add a little bit of my own touch.  Sometimes, I just create cards on my own when I get an idea in my head.

Thanks for stopping by today.
