Happy Birthday Frances!

It's time for another Paper Pretties birthday blog hop.  Today we're celebrating Frances Byrne's big day. The hop starts at the Paper Pretties blog so if you just popped here on your own why not go to the beginning.   Many of you probably know Frances as Stamp Owl.  That's her name at Splitcoast Stampers.  Splitcoast is where I started my on line pursuit of stamping.  There were two stampers works that I kept noticing and one of them was Frances.  I became an immediate fan and now I am honored to be on a design team with her.  Lucky for me she's very patient and helpful, not to mention encouraging and supportive. 

don't forget the inside

So I mentioned earlier that there were two women on Splitcoast that I noticed immediately.  The other stamper I noticed right away was Cindy Haffner.  Isn't it funny that they are both on the Paper Pretties team and how lucky  for me to be able to work/play with these terrifically talented women.  So now it's time for you to move onto the next stop on the hop and you can see for yourself what I mean cause your next stop is Cindy Haffner's Corner.
