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.

J is for Jewel Border

I am back again with a card for my alphabet series. I have so many things in my stash that I hardly use and I purged over a third of it when I recently moved! LOL! Anyway, I found some pretty jewel borders and decided to use one on my card today since I am on the letter J. The background of the card was made by spraying aqua and gold Glimmer Mists onto tissue paper. I adhered the tissue paper onto white card stock.

Jewel Border:  Crystal Stickers - Mark Richard's Enterprises

I is for Ink Stains

Hi and welcome to my blog! Today the letter is I in my alphabet series and I used Ink Stains on this card. The ink stain bottles have daubers on them, so I pounced the ink stains onto my card to get a splat look. I thought this would make a fun male card. I usually don't have enough male birthday cards.

Die:  Celebrate - Pink & Main
Ink Stains - Ranger
