Bio.
I have been drawing since a child and studied graphics at College many years ago, I now work as a Medical photographer part time but my love was always drawing. I started cardmaking about 4yrs ago when I bought my daughter a cardmaking kit which we did together, but I’m afraid I got the bug! My daughter preferred scrapbooking. I then started looking online at other blogs and this then became my passion and I loved sharing my cards with like minded people.
I love stamping and loved finding images, but sometimes I could not find what I wanted so I started to draw myself.
This then has become my second addiction and I have never looked back, I love thinking of new images, and its just fabulous to see others take them and make them into beautiful works of art. Long may it continue!

Many thanks to our Generous Sponsors for their Continued Support

Dies Series #12

 Hi and welcome to my blog. Here is my second die card for this month. As you can see I have the beach on my mind. I cut a circle from a background that I had in my stash that was made using Color Bursts and then spraying a shimmery spray over it. I added the shell die over it. The background was made by embossing a wave die. It has been fun using unused dies in my stash!



Stamp:  Goldfish - Heartfelt Creations
Die:  Unknown Brand
Spectrum Noir Alcohol Markers
Color Bursts
Glimmer Mist - Tattered Angels
Stickles Glitter - Yellow
