Guest Designer, Greta Hess

May 13, 2011

My name is Greta Hess (gg nurse on Flickr). I live in beautiful Oregon, USA, with my husband of 31 years and our 2 Standard Schnauzers. I’m definitely a “dog person’! When the weather’s good we take our travel trailer to a favorite campground for relaxation. You’ll find me sitting in the lounger with my stamping magazines writing notes of things to try when I get home. I work full-time as a Registered Nurse and making cards (and shopping for supplies!) is how I like to use my spare time. I took over the dining room years ago, so you can tell I have a supportive spouse! I don’t really have a style, but I do love simple & elegant with pearls, gems, glitter & lace! I was introduced to Penny Black when I first started stamping and it was love at first sight! I’m so honored to share with you on the Blog today.

Thank you, Greta! Have a great weekend everyone, we’ll see you back here on Monday with a full Design Team feature of one our new transparent sets, “Air Mail”. You’ll see all the fun stamping we did with this set!  Don’t forget to enter your Tall Card into our challenge by uploading your entry to our Gallery.  See Monday’s post for everything you need to know…
