Hey ya'll - I'm Trudy. I'm somewhat of a newbie at cardmaking and blogging; posting my first creation and blog post just 6 months ago. Prior to that I actually owned a couple of little flower shops. I live in a small agricultural community in South Central Florida with my husband, 2 rescued dogs and one very mean Amazon Parrott. I live approximately 125 miles (round trip) to the closest crafts store. I can no longer drive due to a medical condition so, needless to say, I have to improvise often while working on my cards. You know what they say - necessity is the mother of invention. I make and/or create many of my own embellishments and rely on the internet heavily for exceptional companies to get me product quickly and at a good price.
I am primarily a card maker, however I do quite a bit of altered art and some scrapbooking; I am BIG on recycling and natural items in my projects. I don't really have a set "style", although I lean toward Vintage and shabby chic in many of my personal creations where I have "free will".
I have been a GDT on a few sites and I am currently on 3 Design Teams (Tammy's Scrappin Corner, Love to Create and Tsunami Rose Designs) and love the experience I am gaining by teaming with such creative minds. It makes me create projects that I would probably never try, and I just love how it makes me think "outside of the box and gets me out of my comfort zone".
Now, onto some Creative Inspiration from the Design Team to get you started
