Welcome Tracey Dampier!

This is the last week of our Crew spotlights--and I've got a real sweetheart to introduce you to today!  She lives to the north of us here in the USA and is a fabulous crafter!  Please welcome Tracey Dampier!  Let's have her tell us about herself, shall we?

Tracey Dampier: Serene Stamper

Hello! My Name is Tracey Dampier and I live in Thunder Bay, Ontario, nestled in picturesque amethyst country. I have been happily married to my high school sweetheart for 26+ years. We have a wonderful son and daughter as well as a fabulous grand-daughter, 4 yrs and grand-son, 1 yr. I am also "Mom" to my 2 precious fur-babies, Angel and Zeus (a pair of 6 year old Shih Tzus).

For as long as I can remember, I have always enjoyed working on various crafts, having hand sewn a double bed sized quilt using my grandmother's material scraps when I was 13 years old (I still have it). I first caught the scrapbooking/papercrafting bug in 2000 and have been hopelessly addicted to it ever since. I began making cards in 2007, and I especially love to use flowers, ribbon, bling and lace as well as a bit of sewing from time to time on my cards and layouts. My newest "must have" supply is Copics.

As my hubby and I live on an acre of property, I draw a lot of inspiration for my papercrafting from  my surroundings. In the summer I love to watch the assortment of birds that visit my feeders, butterflies in my gardens, bunnies and deer in our field and the squirrels that frolic in our trees. Winter time transforms my yard into a landscape of snow draped trees, twinkling lights and snowmen built by my grand-daughter. When I am not planning a new card, I am photographing my grand-children and fur-babies for new scrapbook pages. Thankfully, my husband is a very understanding man who encourages me to spend time working on this craft.

This is the first Design Team I have joined and I am so looking forward to working with and getting to know all of you. When you have a moment, feel free to stop by my personal blog, Serene-Stamper and say 'Hello'. See you all in Blogland! Hugs xo

Welcome, Tracey--we know we'll be seeing fabulous things from you soon!  Okay, so now that all of my girls have been introduced, I will be telling you more about myself next Wednesday...eek! ;)  Please take these last few days to join in the challenge and happy stamping! :)
