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!


I've made my contribution as well, here in my blog.I've chosen to make a criss cross card as well.






Materials: Purple and pink bazill. Patterned paper Maja design Fika: Blommor på bordet. Flowers from Wild Orchids Crafts. Half pearls from Kort og Godt. Lace from Scrappejungelen and Wild Orchids Crafts. Butterfly punch from Magnolia doohickeys. Lacey square die. Text stamp from Norsk Stempelblad saying: "Just a little note" in Norwegian. All edges are coloured with vintage photo distress ink. The flowers and the wings of the stamp has got a layer of crystal stickles.

And now for my stamp. It is one of my latest buys and it is from Whimsy stamps and it's called: Wee Snippet. She is coloured with these promarkers: blush, pastel pink, sandstone, primrose, marsh green, moss, pear green, cinnamon, caramel, tan, cornflower, bluebell, lavender, lilac, blossom and ivory.

I'll post this card on to these challenges:
