A little bit about Di

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 to share my cards with like minded people. I was a stamper and loved finding images, but some I could not find 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!

I am entering my card into the following Challenges ....... night before Christmas Digi and Christmas cards with love at Christmas vellum or tissue on card embossing anything goes B....I have bear and baubles dry embossing
