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.

I chose the Anything Goes theme for my card today. I used a new stamp in the Holiday Happy mini stamp set. I decided to make a birthday card which I am always in need of. This background was in my stash. After I embossed with an embossing folder, I swiped some Oxide ink pads (colors blue and green) at the top of the card. I spritzed water at the top over the ink and let the ink run down the card.


Stamp:  Holiday Happy Mini Stamp Set - Stampendous
Dies:  Dotted Oval - Sizzix
Stitched Oval - Gina Marie
Embossing Folder:  Numbers - Cuttlebug
Oxide Inks: Salty Ocean, Cracked Pistachio

Thanks so much for stopping by. I hope you will join in the challenge. Have a wonderful day!

Wonderful background and great colors too, April. This stamp always cracks me up as our kids used to do that with bows when they were little. Super cute card.
