Hello, I am Inkyhive

I guess it is time to get my feet wet, sort to speak! I am Inkyhive. . . it is my stamping name, and have been going by it for many a year. (I would guess to say, 9 years!) Even the Post Office knows me by that name. Yes, my mail comes addressed to Inkyhive. I am a friend of Amy's and have been making cards with her stamps for sometime. She and I met at a stamp convention, I believe back in the summer of 2000. It was my very first convention and did hubby and I have a great time. We bought a couple of stamps from Amy and Dan. When I got home, I e-mailed her with a question and as they say, the rest is history. Amy lives a little more than an hour south of me and when our schedules allow, which I wish was more often, we get together and stamp a little and chat.

Any way, Amy has asked if I would post a card using her stamps here from time to time. So, I said -- sure, I can do that. :- )

This is a card I made a few weeks ago for a friend of mine in VA who is a teacher's aide.

Here is a card that I made and gave to Amy as she likes to have cards to put up when she is doing a convention.
I wasn't sure what to do with this card, so I thought I would add a road to it. It was very easy. . .take a piece of black paper, make it the size you want, take a white pen and draw lines down the center! I used brads for the hub-caps and I put white dots on the scalloped edge that goes around the saying. It kind of makes it look like wheels!

All are Amy's stamps which you can find at AJ's Country Stampin's If you can't find them, please e-mail Amy. She will be very happy to help you out.

May you have a wonderful day and I hope time for a little stamping!
