Sisterhood of the Blogging Stampers 8

O.K, I said I'd join and I've plucked up the courage and have! So hello to my fellow group 8 sisters. I'm Frances, 34, married to my lovely hubby Simon and we live on the Wirral (which is in the north-west of England, just across the river Mersey from Liverpool for those of you not familiar to the area or UK).

I started making cards about 7 years ago when I was living down in London and was looking for a hobby to take my mind off the stresses of my then job and happened to live close by to this craft shop. I bought my first stamp and have been hooked ever since! I now have more stash then I will probably ever need but it is impossible to overcome the urge to buy more! Anyone else have these symptoms!?!

Only started blogging this Oct after seeing lots of other blogs and thought it'd be a fun way to motivate myself to actually use up some of my stash and just to share my cards with fellow bloggers/crafters. So am loving the idea of actually getting to 'meet' like minded 'crafty' sisters out there. Look forward to meeting you and hopefully have some fun along the way.

P.S to those of you not part of the Sisterhood, check it out here , there's still plenty of spaces left in group 8.

Hi Frances,

From one SBS to another .. cheers!

I too have the addiction that I can't go into a store, without having to stop and buy something doesn't matter where it is.

Happy New Year,

Hi, Frances,

I too have the same "sickness" with all the same symptoms as you! Looking forward to what's in store for us through SBS8 -- who knows maybe we'll be "cured", though I don't think we'll want to be!!!

Hi Frances! Welcome to SBS8! Lovely work! Can't wait to get to know you better! Oh, and yes, I think that stamping and paper crafting are addicting! You should see all my "stuff!"
