I want to welcome everyone to my Blog. July has been a very busy month for me as I have been gone a lot.. Let us start with Fourth of July. I spent it doing a show at Clear Lake, Iowa. I want to thank everyone who stopped by my booth. It was great meeting everyone. Plus it didn't hurt having this great view.
I am Pamela Sadler and live in Des Moines, Iowa where outside activities are plentiful and opportunities a bound for crafters and artist to show their work. I am single, but have a wonderful son and daughter-in-law who have blessed me with a grandson. He is 19 months old and a charmer. Being single has given me the opportunity to immerse in my passion making cards with an occasion memory keeper book. However, I do have outside interest such as golf, spending time with friends, traveling, and taking long walks on our wonderful trails. Nature is a great way to inspire a person.
I have been designing greeting cards for about five years. This site is where you will learn how to make greeting cards and see new designs. My other website: Cards Truly from the Heart (http://cardstrulyfromtheheart.com/") is where I sell my cards. Cards Truly from the Heart shows cards that I have created and made over the years. Around the Des Moines area I am known as the Queen of Cards. I love using Stampin' Up! products and that is why I am a Stampin' Up Demonstrator. I am growing my Stampin' Up business by hosting workshops, classes, and participating in craft shows. At craft shows I demonstrate the art of card making and give people a chance to make a card. I believe it is so much fun to send out a beautiful hand crafted greeting card.
