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 likeminded 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

For my project, I have used a pringles (but you can use a supermarket own brand) crisps tin as the base and have covered it in some docrafts designer paper, and some ribbons, lace,  pearls and flowers from my stash.  This is ideal for storing table candles... instructions on what to do are on my blog!

I made a vintage themed shabby chic card for this challenge using a much neglected (but very pretty!) stamp and a recycled lace rose.

I have put together an anniversary card using some Memory Box, Spellbinders and Tim Holtz dies, I decorated with lots of ribbon, lace and pearls and some wonderful stamps.

I have used a favourite stamp and colour combo for my card.
I added tiny black pearls to the dry embossed background and finished it off with a large  Organza bow and black button from my stash.

Image was a freebie from Sugar Nellie, coloured with Copics, with some glitter
modge podge added to the wings and cupcake frosting.

My image is Sarah Kay and all the diecuts are from the lovely Joycrafts. Lace coloured to match the card.

And finally introducing our two newest members

Hi everyone, I'm Sally Dodger, and I live in the lovely town of Whitby, North Yorkshire with my many animals. I have been making cards for a few years now, but only started blogging last January. Like many other crafter's I started out doing Counted Cross- Stitch and also some sketching and painting. My real passion however is for card making and paper crafts. I am excited to join the Crafty Cardmakers and More Design Team and looking forward to seeing all your fabulous creations.
The Image is from a Hobby House Art Pad, coloured with Copic's, with ribbon,
lace and pearls as accents.

 My name is Leslie, I'm married with two grown children and one granddaughter, and I live in north Florida. I began scrapbooking about 40 years ago, way back when scrapbooks were really bland - before all the fun papers and embellishments came about. For the last 20 years or so, my paper passion has been card making. I started out making computer-generated cards, graduated to card kits, then quickly realized that having my own stash of stuff was the way to go! The rest is history, as they say! I'm addicted to rubber stamping and also enjoy making 3-D paper projects, especially paper shoes and mini albums, and have been known to alter a few tins and boxes. Thanks to my sister, I also started beading and making jewelry about a year or so ago. A huge thanks to the Crafty Cardmakers and More DT for welcoming me aboard

 Image and sentiments are from Unity, and double-sided papers are from KaiserCraft. Embellished with crocheted lace, wrinkled ribbon and flat-back pearls.
