I am so happy today to be able to feature Bernadette Bliss. As a mother raising 6 children, I admire someone who has already raised 7. That is quite an achievement! Bernadette has recently become a Stampin Up demonstrator and I am so excited for her. Here is a little more about her:
Hello my name is Bernadette Bliss I am thrilled to be featured on Karen's blog this week.
Now for a little about me. I am lover and follower of Jesus, the
wife to a wonderful man for 31 years, mother of 7 wonderful adult
children, Nona to 6 extremely cute and talented grand children and
thrilled that God is blessing us with another little one in January.
I live here at 55+ Community in Arizona with my
husband Steve who is a contract Engineer. His 9 month contract has
extended to 3 1/2 years and we continue to enjoy this beautiful state,
but I miss my children who live on the East Coast. Prayerfully,
someday I will be able to be closer to enjoy them and my
grandchildren, but I am grateful for the Lord providing for us.
I have been crafting most of my life, but designing cards became my passion
about 9 years ago. I have developed my skills since those first days by taking online
classes and just following people who have been successful at their craft. Now
I am a true "empty nester" these days, so my days seem to allow for more creativity, which
I am grateful. Some exciting development has occurred in my life, I just became an
Independent Stampin'Up! Demonstrator at the beginning of July.
I have always desired a cottage business and feel this is just the right one for me.
Crafting with great stamps, beautiful paper and everything coordinates. Just the ticket!
Since I love doing cards and love the Word of God, working with Karen's Word art is a perfect match.
The way Karen designs the Word Art and pairs it with scripture is beautiful. It seems her choices each week
speak to my heart almost every time. I pray you enjoy using it as much as I do.
Have a blessed week and stop by my blog when you
can. I would love to hear from you! Bernadette
Thank you, Bernadette, for sharing your beautiful cards with us. I love the way she uses pattern paper. I always struggle with using that, although it never stops me from buying it. I just can’t resist beautiful patterned paper. You can find more inspiration on Bernadette’s blog, Blissful Bits and Pieces. It would be great if you could take a minute or two and drop by and leave her some love.
Have a fantastic weekend!
