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 a few years 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.

Cutest minty card EVER! Sue, your added mints and the dimensional "flakes" really make your card feel extra sugary and sweet! I especially like that you used a hint of "mint" colored green to the other elements of this sparkling creation. SO SO SO CUTE! hugs, de
