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!

Many thanks to our Generous Sponsors for their continued support

Sue, you got me with the marvelous HM image! The steaming cup with the cinnamon stick and gorgeous mice enjoying it is fantastic! The patterned papers are gorgeous and a great match for the card. Thank you for sharing your bio! I didn't know you drew so well that others use your art. Are you an illustrator? I think it is marvelous that you can draw an image to your liking! Your work is great, Sue! Hugs
