My Aunt Joyce has been making full sized computer generated cards for many years now.
When I went to AZ to visit for Christmas I took all my stamping goodies with me. Boy was she hooked in a matter of minutes. She absolutely loves the idea of being able to create her own backgrounds. She loves it so much...that there is a joke going around that Uncle Joe won't be able to retire in June cause she is going hog wild with purchasing stamp related things. lol
She calls often wanting to know more and more - I love it! I was teasing her a couple of weeks ago about how proud I was that she was going outside of her comfort zone (computer generated cards) to stamping her own.
Comfort zones huh? Well this got me to thinking that I was in a comfort zone with the size of cards that I make. I decided to make an Aunt Joyce sized card to see how I did. WOW... it was pretty hard for me to fill up all that space! lol
