My First Post

I am excited to announce the beginning of my blog, The Simple and Creative Corner.  Here will be where I will share my love for Stampin' Up!  I have been a demonstrator for 11 years and have been a hobbyist for the last several years.  I am excited and motivated to turn my passion into a business.  I will be holding classes, and am available to come to your home or other venue, to share how simple it is to create beautiful cards or other projects. 

For my first post I will share a card that was a sample from last weeks Stampin' Up! convention.
