Welcome to Paper Inkspirations!
Hi! My name is Krissy, welcome to my blog. I have been an avid paper-crafter for many years, my addiction started with scrapbooking and has evolved to card-making. It all started when I realized that I had forgotten to buy a card for my nephew's birthday. Looking at my ever-expanding collection of scrapbook supplies, I thought I'd made a card for him. Since then, I've been hooked on card-making and my scrapbooks have been collecting dust. Someday I'll get back to them... I have two beautiful boys and a wonderful & supportive husband and I work at the Preschool at our church. When I'm not spending time with my family or making cards, I enjoy being active in our church. Life is good! Thanks for stopping by, I hope you enjoy your visit.
Take time to get inky today....

Like many papercrafters, I sometimes have a "mental block" when it comes to creating masculine cards. So, I eagerly joined Jacki's challenge at www.thecardcastle.blogspot.com. This stamp set was given to me by a friend and I am in the process of making her a set of notecards using each of the stamps. So, this card will be going to her eventually.
Once I decided on the layout, the card came together quickly since I used a DCWV Mat Stack. Those little stacks make it so easy to coordinate your papers.
