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!

I am offering one lucky player a chance to win this
adorable House Mouse Designs stamp AND tag die set.

That's 4 chances to win a prize just for entering the challenge!

The design team has come up with some great inspiration for this challenge.
  So, scurry on over to the House Mouse and Friends Monday Challenge blog
and check them out, then get busy and enter a card/Project of your own.
 4 Wonderful prizes on offer.

Please remember, you must use a House Mouse Design image on your entry.
Challenge # 264 runs through Saturday April 28th at midnight EST.
We love to visit  you to see what you come up with to inspire us!!
