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!

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 of your own.
  2 Wonderful prizes on offer.

Please remember, you must use a House Mouse Design image on your entry.
Challenge # 272 runs through Saturday August 18th atnspire us!!

Thanks for stopping by today, have a good one, until later.......
