The card  I  share today is showcasing a little image which was sent to me from our sponsor this week .
  Handyman Bear from  .............................................................................................................

Most of my grandchildren are boys but all a little old for this card , BUT I thought any craft Nanna would love this cute bear for someone near and dear .
There are many more such beautiful images found amongst Di's Digidownloads.

Here is a little background from Di
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!
