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!

Thanks to our Generous Sponsors for their continued support

Maybe this is one of my Sue Drees all-time favorites (and it's tough to get into that category!) Loving the papers, the bright colors, the festive feel, the deep blue with the greens and red, and those adorable little mice frolicking and enjoying themselves. Those bells look so real - like a photograph! Fabulous card, Miss Sue! xx

Love the inside and envelope too. I can see that lots of thought and time went into this stunning creation! I wouldn't want to part with this (unless its to send it to me haha ;-))
