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 had fun using this brand new stamp! I found the perfect background in my stash where I had used an embossing folder and then swiped Platinum Planet Brilliance ink over the raised web. This little meece is so cute he will never scare anyone on Halloween. 😊

Stamp:  Witch Swing - Stampendous

Your new stamp is just so cute. Lovely colours you used, and that spider web is very unique.

I really enjoyed reading your history. It's nice that you and your daughter have paper arts in common. I don't scrapbook any more. I have 15 albums full, and no time for more.

What a great spider web to go along with this cute image. You're right, I don't think he'll scare anyone. He's just too cute. [Bunny]
