Sandra MacLean is probably one of my absolute favorite crafters. I learned of her when she became a Trendsetter over at There She Goes. I instantly fell in love with her style. She is one amazing colorist. I just oogle (if that's a word) over her work. I wish that I could buy every card she makes!! I have been fortunate enough to win a couple of her cards. One such card is the one I have cased here. I have this card hanging on my bulletin board in my craft room. I look at this card daily.
About two weeks ago I was playing with my reinkers and a blending pen and I colored the image. Well tomorrow is one of our school staff's birthday. I don't care what they say at work - I'm going to give everyone a homemade card. So I took what I colored and made a version of Sandra's beautiful card. I didn't sew on the card, because my eyes are so tired that I didn't want to get crooked lines! I hope I did Sandra proud.
The next image is a card that Sandra sent as a personal gift to me. When TSG had their release last month, the new set Winning the Race had/has a special place in my heart. I am about to celebrate my 3 years of being cancer free. Well I contacted Sandra immediately and told her I had to have her card. It is just so amazing. She is the most amazing and sweetest woman that I have never met. She was kind enough to send it to me. I took it over to Michaels and had it framed. The photo does not do it justice, but it is just beautiful. Now I am seeking the most perfect place to hang my card.
This is my way of thanking Sandra for her amazing kindness and inspiring me everyday.
I am a Denver born native and have no plans of ever leaving this beautiful city. I am a 5th grade teacher, breast cancer survior, and Sassy (aunt) to a beautiful girl and 2 wonderful boys. I thoroughy enjoy making cards and scrapbooks. I plan on spending as much time enjoying what I love - I've learned life it just too short.
