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 it’s just fabulous to see others take them and make them into beautiful works of art. Long may it continue!

Papercrafting



Who said you could not teach old dogs new tricks !?  After all these years of blogging I have just learned to place a watermark on my photo of my card ....whoopie . Thank you Sandra from TTCRD

Good morning , good afternoon or good evening to you all . Welcome to my room and thank you for calling in .

I really enjoyed creating my DT card as it reminded me of how unsure of myself I was when I began papercrafting as a hobby . Comparing my efforts to those that I saw on line on different blogs and to those samples in craft shops ,  getting started was hard but craft lovers are an encouraging , inspiring lot and now there is no stopping me .
Talking about crafting as I am , I am actually here today because there is a new weekly challenge up and running  for  http://ttcrd.blogspot.com/ Just click on the link and join in . We would love to see your make .
