Spotlight Sunday

Welcome to Spotlight Sunday!
Today we have a “fantabulously” talented lady and tomorrow’s Challenge Me Monday Guest Designer!
Let me introduce to you to Glenda from Glenda’s Cards:
You may recognize this project from Challenge Me Monday challenge #57 Mom’s The Word.

Glenda was one of our Top 5 picks for this challenge.
Before we show you some of Glenda’s other incredible creations we thought you would like to get to know her a little better. We asked her a few crafty questions.
1. When did you start scrapbooking/paper crafting? Why?

My fun with paper, scissors, and glue began in 1997. Before that time, my crafting was needle-related...sewing, cross-stitch, and ribbon embroidery. I was running out of wall space to hang my framed stitched work. With the birth of my granddaughter that year, I began scrapbooking to preserve our family photos and all the precious moments. Of course, no Cricut then. I bought the Cricut Expression in 2009 and began a new journey of crafting!
2. What is your favorite type of project to make?

I enjoy making cards! I especially like trying different styles of cards and learning new techniques.
3. What is your favorite product to use on your projects?

I use the Cricut Expression on most of my work. The Cuttlebug is a favorite too - love all the folders! Inks and punches are at the top of my list too! Of course if the project is for a Red Hat Lady, it has to have bling!
4. What is your favorite Cricut cartridge?

I enjoy all the cartridges that I have, but I seem to use Wild Card, Lacy Labels, and A Child's Year cartridges the most.
5. What do you do in your spare time, when you are not paper crafting?

I enjoy time with family, going to the grandkids' games and activities, love shopping for more paper, and I enjoy all the fun of being a Red Hat Lady!
However, if you asked my children, they would say I am always playing with the Cricut! I need to retire from work so I can play more!
6. Any other info you would like us to know about you.

My blog was started in September 2010 and I enjoy the many friendships that have been made. I have felt so fortunate being on two design teams for the last few months..Paper Playtime and Flaunt It Fridays. I love challenges and try to participate as I have time. I enjoy using the Cricut and I am happy that many blogs focus on the Cricut.
I appreciate Fantabulous Cricut-- always great challenges and amazing Design Team work!
