It's Flatter-day!!!!

Hello Ippity Peeps!!!  I'm super excited to be flattering this Ippity wonderful girl today!!!

Does this face look familiar??? heehee.  It should because Cathy Meyers (aka StampinCathy/ Stampin Fanatic) is the most amazing, supportive and just down right sweetest girl!!!
She has to be Ippity and Unity's #1 fan.  She is always providing encouraging and delightful comments on the blogs and in the SCS forum.  I can't tell you how excited I am that she agreed to answer a few questions for us.  I just LOVE this girl!

Tell us a little about yourself.  {Family, location, background, job, kids, etc.}
•    Hello, I’m Cathy and I love Ippity and Unity.  I’ve been married to my Jr. High Sweetheart for 34 years and we have 2 beautiful daughters.  We are from Missouri and moved back to Tennessee 3 years ago.

I just love how bright and cheery this card is, just like Cathy!!!

How did you first get involved in stamping?
•    Every since I can remember I’ve always loved all kinds of crafts.  Our family went on vacation to see relatives in Nashville and our niece was stamping and of course I wanted to try it!  I’ve been hooked every since.

What is your stamping style?
•    I don’t have one style.  I love to stamp all styles.

Tell us about your creative process
•    I start with an idea, change in the middle and repeat.  Then it all falls into place.

 This is one of my favorite Ippity stamps set and I just love how Cathy used it!!!

What is your favorite {ippity} stamp set and why?
•    I love all the sets, but it seems that I keep reaching for Music of the Heart.

How often do you stamp?
•    I try to play every day.  If I can’t I think about what I want to create.

How long does it take you to make a project you are happy with?
•    Sometimes it can be 20 minutes or up to days.

What does your craft room look like? {messy, clean, etc.}
•    My DH calls me a Mad Scientist.  So I would say that my room is cross between a tornado and a hurricane.

 Another "fintastic" card... I love the stamped fish background.

What is your biggest paper crafting challenge?
•    I would have to say scrapbooking.

What song best describes you?
•    You Got a Friend

If you were stranded on a desert island what are the three things you would bring?
•    Family, some crafting goodies, laptop (hopefully there’s WIFI)

What is your favorite quote?
•    I love inspirational quotes.  One of my favorites is…‎"We are often so caught up in our destination. That we forget to appreciate the journey, especially the goodness of the people we meet along the way. Appreciation is a wonderful feeling, don't overlook it.

What would I find in your refrigerator right now?
•    Well of course leftovers and salad goodies.

Such beautiful cards by this girl!!!  Thank you Cathy for your support of all things Ippity.  You make everyone smile on a daily basis and I'm so happy we got the chance to learn more about you!!!!
