I love these cards below that Cathy has created (notice the sentiments are from her collection).  It’s hard to believe she’s only caught the card making bug so recently!

I think you’ll really love Cathy’s personality and charm.  Her blog is relatable and makes me giggle almost every time I read it.  Be sure to pop over. Please.  I’d love for you to see Cathy’s charm and wit.

But that’s not all folks, Cathy teaches online classes too! If you’re interested in an online class that’s created to be fun, informative and highly do-able, make sure you check out Cathy’s online class library!

Cathy has recently gotten hooked on stamping.  (I can relate to being hooked!, can you!?)  Let’s welcome her with open arms.  Please use the comment section here and on Cathy’s blog to welcome her and tell her what YOU love about stamping.  We will be reading the comments and select random people on our Simon Says Stamp blog next week to win her new stamps *that are coming in Mid May.

Happy Fri-YAY!  It’s great having you with us today!

I applaud SSS for giving us a variety of products to fit a variety of personalities. If you don’t like it, don’t buy it! I personally will be checking out what fabulous things Miss Cathy has to offer us. I’ll also be checking out her blog for some good giggles!
