Chick Challenge #16

A new month has arrived, and the countdown to {ippity}'s newest release has begun!  Only 7 more days until we can share the latest stamp sets with you, as well as some fabulous projects created by the{ippity} chicks!

Today we have a beautiful card to share with you, created by this week's

(challenge week of February 2nd-8th)

Aletha J. Williams
Tulsa, Oklahoma

Here's what Aletha shared with us: My name is Aletha Jane Williams and I live in Tulsa, OK, or better known as “tornado alley.”  I am a self-taught artist and am still in the process of learning. I have been in the graphic arts/print production industry for many years. When I started in the industry we created everything manually, no computers involved. My 15 year experience in the “crafting/art” world is rubber stamp art, mixed media, and collage. In 2009 I became disabled and cannot work outside the home. Now I can concentrate on my health and my art. My creations will always involve rubber or digi stamps. I am an obsessive collector of stamps. I feel like I am collecting little pieces of art that I can turn into my own art. When I discovered Unity, and then Ippity, I knew that these were little pieces of art that I had to have. I am honored to be your “Hot” Chick for this challenge. Now, let’s see what you can come up with!
