Hello and Welcome to Week Three at The Challenge! Before we get started, we are delighted to welcome a new designer to our team! She is a talented artist and a lovely person! Welcome to Vicki Finger! I asked Vicki to share a bit about herself.
Hi Everyone! I'm Vicki Finger - a wife, mom and Mimi to 12 grandkids. I am also Puppy Mom to Holly Noelle and Reese Mackenna. My hubby and I have been married for 32+ years. In 1997, I was introduced to Creative Memories Scrapbooking. In February of 2015, I started making just a few cards for a friend whose Mom had terminal cancer as a way of cheering her up from the bazillion trips she was making to hospitals for Chemo, etc. Back then I didn't stamp at all. I used die cuts to make my cards. On August 1st of last year, I started my blog, Twinkling Paper Studio, with what is still my signature style. About 99% of my cards have shimmer or sparkle on them and many of them have some type of watercolor. Heat Embossing is my favorite technique and I actually consider myself a bit of an artist now. I was always told growing up that I had no artistic ability whatsoever. Guess I proved them wrong! I look forward to getting to know each of you better and to being on this Design Team. I hope you find my work inspiring in some way.
