Who? Why?

Who is Firenze Cards?
That'd be me... Helen! I was given the gift of several card making classes, for my birthday in 2003, and it's been one heck of a journey - and a great one at that!

Why? Why Firenze Cards?
I have always felt emotionally drawn to the Italian city of Florence, and in 1984 I saw the name Firenze - not knowing it was the real name of Florence - I decided that I would use that name in some business that I cared to start in the future. And then, as it turns out, Firenze is where my ancestors hail from! Spooky I know :) And cards... well that's where I got started with this creative spark...

Where am I going?
What started out as a few lessons in learning how to use rubber stamps, ink pads, embossing powders and paints, has led to so many other things, not the least of which are the wonderful friends I've made in this creative journey.

My creative journey is heading in other directions. I'm enjoying playing with canvases - whether with stamps and ink pads or "off the page" creations of scrapbooking. I'm also loving making albums - of the mini variety... And I' m finding interesting items to use in these creations.

Thank you for stopping by and having a look at my creations - a lot of which have been inspired by other great creative minds.
