Guest: Suzanne Dean

Greetings Stampers! Today I would like to welcome Suzanne Dean! She is a paper crafter extraordinaire! I always enjoy looking at her layouts and layers. Her choice in colors is always right on! So without further adieu, let's take a lookie at her beautiful creations and get to know her a little more. =)

Suzanne Dean

How long have you been stamping?
I’ve been stamping for about 6 years, scrapbooking for 10 yrs, & cardmaking for 1 ½ years

What's your tool of choice?

My Copics and my SU snips

Describe yourself in 3 words.
Creative, Loyal & Kind

If you had a stamp line, what would you call it?
Well….I do have one coming out soon but can’t say yet, shhhhh!

What's your favorite TGF stamp set?
I love them all but “Home Sweet Home” just tugs on my heart. I have 2 dogs & 5 cats, so animal stamps of any kind usually are my favorite .

If you were a color, what would you be? Why?
Red—bright, fierce, loyal & always fun

Descibe your crafting area.
I love my room (wish it was bigger)—I’m super organized but it can look like a tornado struck when I’m working on several projects. My room is sage green with black/cream toile curtains & pillows—love toile!

When making cards, what is your favorite colors to use?
I love to use red, black & pinks the most! But I’m really an equal opportunity color user because I love all colors, lol!

Do you listen to music while you stamp?
Sometimes I’ll turn the TV onto HGTV for background noise, but mostly I like it quiet. When its nice outside I like to open the windows & listen to the wind rustle the trees & hear the birds singing—so calming.

3 wishes:

Hmmm….a personal wish of mine is to make it to Italy this year and to get published more. A general wish is for our country & economy to heal and everyone to be in a happier state of mind. Oh and more stamping goodies is always good :o)

Ah such wonderful work. I especially love the little 'Home Sweet Home' wood hanging! Too cute for words!

Today's question is: How do you like your steak done? or if you're a vegetarian/vegan, what is your favorite dish?

Mmmm steak... I like mine medium rare. Well I guess I know what's for dinner tonight. hahaha. With a side of mashies and lemon asparagus....

OMword, Suzanne's cards are sooo beautiful! I love her style and her bunny dog cards are just adorable with their sweet faces!

Steak? I made 6 rib eyes last night! Yummmy...well done for me dipped in teriyaki sauce, and we had it with shrimp, baked potatoes, and baked beans. Mmmm...too bad DH took the leftovers to work. :(
Happy day all!

Fantastic cards, Suzanne!! Impeccable coloring.

I don't eat steak but if I did I would like it well well done.

Angie said...

I like my steak medium to medium rare too, and mashies with asparagus are two of my fav veggies! I think we could eat together well. LOL! As far as Suzanne's projects, they are beautiful! I haven't seen her work before, so this was all new and fun. I think I'll go check out her blog now. Oh yeah, when is Gabby going to pick the winner for her CASEd card?
