Hi, I am Kathleen Hopperstad. I am excited to be spotlighted this week, especially because it's my birthday month! I love being on Tamara's recipe challenge team! It stretches me and challenges me each week to try things that I might not have or that are outside my comfort zone. I feel this only helps me grow as a stamper. I have been a stamper and scrapbooker for about 11 years and afor the last 6 years. It was something I never thought I would do but it has turned out to be one of the best decisions of my life! My sister, Mary Jo, tried to get me interested in rubber stamping for awhile but I kept saying I couldn't get into it because I did way too many other crafts. Well, now papercrafts are pretty much the only kind of craft I do! Never say never.
I have been married to my husband, Doug, for 18 years and we have three children: Rebecca-15, Nicholas-10, and Sam-8. They keep me hopping and all of them enjoy stamping with me! My husband, Doug, is an engineer and he loves to do woodworking as a hobby. I guess this helps him understand my obsession a little bit. LOL! He built me a beautiful craft room a year ago. I have yet to post pictures because it's never clean enough! I keep saying I'll get it organized enough to take pictures but somehow it doesn't happen. I'm lucky enough to be a SAHS(stay-at-home-stamper) and work my Stampin' Up! business.
My favorite recipe challenge card I've made is Recipe Challenge#24. The challenge was to use 2 photos or stamped images, flowers, and stamping.
Here is her gorgeous card using the recipe.
