Di's Bio.
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!

Many thanks to our generous sponsors for their continued support.

I'm just not yet ready for autumn! I love the season, but I'm so cold natured! 100 degrees feels yummy to me! Your card is darling, as always! Love your fall colors, and the twine is such a fun embellishment to finish it off! Hugs!

What a really sweet image and I know it's about that time for some hot cocoa isn't it?! Love those gorgeous Fall papers you've used with this! :)

Hi, Sue! I know I've said it before, but I can't help it! You keep making such gorgeous cards! I DO believe this is my all time fave HM card! The rich colors, the darling bow, the little leaves, the beautifully colored image (another one I need) It's really wonderful. When do you find time to do your coloring? Your images are always very detailed and exquisitely shaded. The little dots of hot chocolate dancing around the steam makes my nose twitch with chocolatey anticipation! YUMMMMMM! love this card, Sue! hugs, de
