Hi!
Our Featured Swapper for this week is Denise Hinton!!! (isn't she cute!)

Here are some of Denise's favorite cards!



1. When did you become a Stampin' Up!
Demonstrator?
Aug 2005
2. What is your all time favorite stamp set?
aaaaggghhh... Baroque Motifs... only because
you're making me pick just one!
3. What is your stamping style?
Bi-polar... I sometimes have energy for lots of
detail, most of the time I lean toward simple.
4. What is your favorite color combination?
Anything with Chocolate Chip!
5. When not stamping or scrapbooking what is
your favorite past time?
Hanging out at home or with friends
6. What is one embellishment you could not
live without?
hmm... probably metal stuff like brads, eyelets,
staples, hodgepodge hardware...
7. Do you stand or sit when you stamp?
I prefer to stand since i'm constantly moving
around, but will sit for coloring or detail work.
8. If you could go anywhere in the world where
would it be?
I would go anywhere... I love to travel! This
fall, we're going back to Munich, then to Paris
and Barcelona by train.
9. What is your favorite kind of chocolate or
candy?
Plain M&M's... I can eat an entire bag if someone
doesn't take it away from me.
10. What is your favorite kind food?
Mexican food hands down... it usually comes with
margaritas!
11. Favorite Restaurant? Bear Flag Republic -
it's a microbrewery we walk to every weekend. We
enjoy sitting at the bar, eating garlic fries &
drinking beer and waiting for the "eniqma" to
come in. She can drink a 20oz glass of beer in
less than 2 minutes. Honest! We time her.
12. What is your guilty pleasure?
Old fashioned donuts!!
13. What is your favorite stamping tool that
you could not do with out? I don't have any of
the fancy embossing tools or cropadile... so i
will say my hand held punches to set eyelets,
make holes for brads, etc.
