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
For my frame I used a nobel rectangles spellbinder die, with distress inks and metallic pan pastels and the topper and background was from my stash (still using it up!) 

Distress Inks and four different dies to make this card - really enjoyed this challenge!

Kraft card base, layers and die cuts.

The frame was cut with my Cameo and the butterflies cut and embossed with my Fiskars Fuse.
