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

Beyond the Blue Embossing & Ombre


This week’s Beyond the Blue challenge is heat embossing & ombré.  I embossed the main flower stamp from Wplus9’s Kind Soul set & then used Spun Sugar & Worn Lipstick distress inks to create the ombré effect.  I used those two colors on my hello die cut also.  Don’t forget there is a prize up for grabs!!

Until next time!
