My sister introduced me to your blog....she is friends with your sister. I love "lurking" and seeing what creations you come up with. I make cards as well only I have yet to attempt the coloring thing as I have no idea where to start. Your cards are beautiful, thanks for sharing.

Joanna van said...

I just wanted to say. I recently came across your blog and I have just started in the stamping cards area. I love your work and it is truly inspiring.

My question is: "How long have you been stamping?"

Rachel Hope said...

Congrats on all those hits! Love your blog...you are on my Google Reader. So, question... "What is your favorite Stamp company?" Follow up question..."What stamp company have you Recently Discovered?"

Peggy S said...

I truly enjoy seeing your creations -- they are always beautiful, so richly layered and detailed, and have such a soft and soothing quality to them :)

I wonder how you come up with your cards-- do you start with the stamp in mind or papers or color combos? I am a newbie and am sometimes very overwhelmed by all the goodies I've come to accumulate.

Jessica (jessrose21) said...

My question is, what technique or style have you never tried, but have always meant to?

Anonymous said...

Mary Campbell said...

Hello, just found your blog and will need to check it out but first wanted to get my name in for the awesome blog candy. Thanks for sharing.

DeniseLynn said...

Wow - Great blog candy ... AND what's this ... coffee too?! Oh yum, giddy up! If I can find time to do art and drink coffee then I say it's almost heaven on earth (oh yea, like you, I love a latte!!) So for my question: When do you find time to stamp? {I know being a SAHM is hard work. Which leads to another silly question; do you ever get to drink an entire cup of latte while it's still hot!}

Rosella said...

Sherrie, I like your blog a Latte LOL! I enjoy the projects you make. My question for you is: Do you ever lose your stamping mojo, if so how do you get it back?
Isn't it the best to stamp with coffee. Mind you, have to be careful not to get the coffee onto your stamping LOL!

Beverly Elrod said...

I absolutely love your blog. I love your color combinations. How do you choose your colors when beginning a project?
I'm inspired by your work! Congratulations!

Anouk Martin said...

YM

A Webb Of Creations said...

Love your creations, my questions is, in your opinion, what tool should no stamper be without? Thanks for the candy.

Linda Webb

Shadowcatcher said...

Hi Sherrie! Congrats on your hits! My question is when you sit down to make a card, do you start out with a layout in mind, or do you make the pieces, and decide on layout aftwerward?

jodene said...

I love this question and answers. It helps us get to know each other. I always post a non stamp question so here's one for you. What is your all time favorite chick flick? Mine is Cold Mountain, not sure why but it sticks out for me.

Carin said...

I enjoy seeing your creations - you always inspire me!

My question: do you have a "stamp- or craft-room" and how do you store your stamps, scrap and craft-stuff?

lois lane said...

I love coffee!!!! My question is what is your favorite stamp company?

Cindy Keery said...

Hi Sherrie,

WOW - that is quite the blog candy!! Thanks for being so generous.

I was so glad when my friend Jill told me about your blog a couple months ago and I've been visiting it daily ever since. I love your artistic stamping style. Everything you make is unique and truly beautiful.

Ok, a question... how did you get started in stamping?

Cindy

Shannon said...

You have a wonderful blog. What time of day do you do most of your stamping? Thanks for the chance to win some awesome candy.

KayellWY said...

I just found your blog via a link on the "Stampin' When I Can" blog. :) I have also enjoyed perusing your gallory and your cards are great. Do you, like me, have to *move* your thinking to use different colors and tend to use certain colors mostly? Also, I love coffee too and would like to know your favorite. :)

Kristy said...

Can't remember how I found your blog, reference from another one I'm sure. Here's one for you.... how often do you CASE cards?

Pamela Posch said...

Congratulations on the success of your blog...

I am a coffee lover...and I love your coffee and cream ribbon!

The cards that you made this morning are great. They're alike, but not alike...very nice.

My question: where do you find your inspiration for creating cards?

Steph said...

Hello...this is awesome candy. My question is, what is your favorite style of card to make?

KIMBERLY said...

My question is: I read in your profile that you like to creat with a latte in your hand. So I wanna know how many latte's do you dink a day? I'm an iced coffe fan myself. Thanks for sharing!

Debbie said...

Hi SherriE,

I have always enjoyed looking at your cards and miss them. My question would be: Do you do any scrapbook layouts or are you just a card, alterd art maker??

Peggy Maier said...

Well...everyone has already covered the questions I wanted to ask! I guess I could ask if you attend many stamp camps or conventions during the year?

JulieHofer said...

Thanks for a chance to win!! Do you own the DreamKutz or Bind-it-All? (for making journals)

stampinsars said...

Allison said...

I don't remember (and I almost never do since I have over 1000 subscriptions in Google Reader...yikes!). I remember it was fairly early on and I was bamboozled by your creations: http://stampinwhenican.blogspot.com/2007/03/found-new-site.html

Anyhoo, I want to know who is your biggest blogging enabler (i.e., who constantly uses materials that force you to go buy paper, stamps, etc.)?

mnhyrkas at SS or SCS said...

Hi there! I'd sure love to win one of your cards :) I've always been a huge fan of your work. I was actually just thinking of contacting you to ask how you set things up with your floral shop- did you approach them? do they prepurchase? or do you get a % of the profit. How much? etc, etc. I'd love to try venturing out into this realm but it would be nice to get some input. email or pm me if you'd prefer, otherwise I'll look forward to a future post. email is
mnhyrkas at yahoo

Kristina said...

I love your blog! Your's is one of the first ones I added to my reader! My question is do you prefer working with acrylic stamps or with wood mounted stamps best?

SusanH said...

Just found your blog and it's great - do you use an "inspiration" or "idea" journal - how do you keep up with ideas??

Well Said Cards said...

Love your blog - you've been on my google reader for a couple of months now. My question for you is: what's your favorite stamping technique? Mine is distressing because I love that antique look!

Princess Matilda said...

I just found your blog today, but it will be added to my feeds and hopefully I'll get email to let me know when your blog changes so I can remember to come back and ogle the goodies! Love your style.

ejones said...

Great blog candy. I am wanting to know where you come up with your ideas?

Jan Scholl said...

Did you ever make a card you loved so much you could bear to part with it?

Lisa - InkyWings said...

Found your blogg not long ago and like to see your stamped cards. Haven't read the others questions but here is one from me: What is your favorite technique?

Karen Skaggs said...

I notice that so many stampers are Christians which is great! My Question is "How long have you been a Christian?" I enjoy your blog and I am fairly new to stamping so I like looking for new inspiration. Thanks!

Alex said...

Okay my question to you is, what is your favourite crafting magazine (if you have one)? Cool idea and what lovely candy you are offering thanks for a great chance xx

Angel said...

Oh, yummy candy. Winning that would be just dandy. Let's see....a question for you....
what's your fav color combo to use?

Doreen G said...

I have just found you via Allison's blog and I like what you do.
I have been stamping for a while amongst other things-and I am always amazed at what people come up with.

Lisa C. said...

Love reading your blog, your candy looks great. One thing I am wondering, how do you decide which kind/type of ribbon to put on your cards? I never know if I should go with grograin, organdy, polka-dotted, gingham, etc. I love how ribbon finishes a card, but never know just which to pick.

Wanda. said...

Wonderful blog. My question for you is how much time to you spend a day on creating/stamping?

Alison Molumby said...

My Question for you: What is it like living in British Columbia? I've heard that it is beautiful. Seems so exotic and far away (I'm in New York state). Nice blog!

Mistylynn said...

How do you get your images to line up so perfectly? Your cards are so cute AND I sell my cards at a little boutique store that doesn't get much traffic, I've been thinking of branching out. Could you tell me what you sell your cards for? Thanks.
Misty

Tanis said...

Wow! I can't wait until my 100 turns into a 1000! (nevermind 10,000)!
congrats!
I just found your blog, so i can't make any real suggestions, but I guess I can ask you a question!

Are you a Ted Dekker fan?? (I'm trying to get every book of his read...I think I'm getting close!)
I'm looking forward to checking your blog out. Thanks for the fab giveaway!

Patty H. said...

You blog is on my daily read list, have been out of town for the holiday and no internet access, can you believe that. Oh my, my question is: Do you have a favorite stamping technique?

Sophia Salas said...

Love your blog. Your creations are so versatile, my question: Where do you find ideas/inspiration for your cards?

Linda SS said...

I adore you cute cards! My favorites have been the cupcakes, the fish bowl, and the tire swing. How do you get your ideas? Is it the stamp, paper, etc, or do you just start working and it comes together perfectly?

Carolyn said...

I just found your blog, and I love it. Your artwork is great and I wonder what is your favorite technique and your favorite color combo, that is one that is tough for me sometimes.

Pamela S. Wade said...

Sherrie, I love reading your blog and seeing all of your beautiful cards! My question is, how did you get into selling your cards? Did you just take them to the flower shop or other places and let them see them? Thanks! ~~Pam

Jill said...

I have been reading your blog since near the begining, and then passed it on to my friend Cindy. From the begining your cards have been inspiring, and a delightful part of my day/week. I even remember reading about a certain favourite perk of laptop computers, which was then deleted. :) It wasn't that bad of an idea.
I was wondering if you have a favourite ink brand? What would you recommend for use with acrylic stamps? Any tips for using staz-on ink and acrylic stamps?

As a fellow TWU alum, I am looking forward to seeing more of your delightful cards in the future.

Cheers. :)

Suzie Cullen said...

Every day you come up with more wonderful designs, Sherrie! I am SO impressed!! Being a SAHM, when during the day do you create these awesome works of art? Are you thinking about designs all the time?

Kim said...

Love your blog. I see you are from BC...my questions are do you live in the lower mainland (as I do) and where do you get your 'candy'...in other words what craft/scrap stores do you shop at locally and on line?
