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!

Some inspiration from our DT
Scalloped Circle shabby style card made using Grand Nesties.


My image is Bubble Magic by The Paper Shelter and coloured with Copics, die cut background is from the Silhouette store.

I have made a circular card using my Grand Nesties and one of Jane Gill's Dotty Flowers from Woodware. I also dry embossed the image having first coloured it with Pearlex.

My image is from Wild Rose Stamps, and my circular paper is Basic Grey. Circle dies courtesy of Memory Box and Marianne.

I don't have any large circular dies so I went with circular stamps. These are "Dot Spot" from PTI. I added curved corners to finish the card.

I made a rocker card using  a combination of dies from my stash, and some free Nitwits paper that I got in a magazine this month.  The small centre topper comes from my Crafters Companion Barclay cd.
