Cathy Santie -
My name is Cathy Santie, and I live 25 miles West of the "Windy City" - Chicago, Illinois. I have two adult children; a daughter who graduated with her Masters in Forensics, and a son who gave me my first Grandson , January 2010. I have a wonderful, supportive husband who actually gave me a nudge in the direction of this wonderful world of paper! Seven years ago, after watching me for a few months dabble in card making, I asked for a sewing machine for Christmas. He and my daughter had a bet going that this interest in paper wouldn't last for more than a few months. Well, as you can see, I received my sewing machine and after hundreds of cards later.....they lost! Thank you for visiting my blog, and for all your wonderful comments - they are greatly appreciated!

Now get inspired by our Design Team!

Just one card installed, but if I still wanted a place it failed. Think it is because it is the same message on my blog. Namely the third card had first caught the message, but also wanted the first place. But unfortunately that did not.

Greetings Astrid.
