Kris A, Olathe KS

About Kris
I’m a SAHM to two teenages (14 year old daughter - Freshman and 17 year old son - Junior) and married for 19 years to my husband Terry. I love to volunteer. Some of the places I volunteer are Operation Christmas Child, CFH, Operation Quiet Comfort, Youth missions coordinator at church, Homes Association board member, PTO and for my kids’ sports teams. We live in Olathe KS but I’m a Washington State native. I have also lived in Michigan and Arizona.

How long have you been making cards?
I have been stamping since about 1998. Met someone at a church we visited when we first moved here and went to a party she had and was hooked.

How long making them for our heroes?
Since January 2008.

What is your favorite kind of card to make?
My favorite card would be birthday and Christmas cards.

Do you have a special technique you love to use?
I will try any technique at least once. At the moment, my favorite would be coloring with my prismacolor pencils and mineral spirits. Generally I like the simple, elegant style of cards with few embellishments or layers.

Are there colors, style, or product that draw you?
Bright colors, anything green, any shaped brad and ribbon. But then again, it depends on my creative mood and time of the year.

What motivates you to make cards for our heroes?
My husband was in the Army in the early 80’s and our nephew returned home this past December from his second tour in Iraq. We also know several people at church who have a family member serving in Afghanistan and Iraq.
