Here goes……

So here it is, my first blog post. I wanted to share my card making journey with you all.

I was looking for a hobby so I could have some me time. I have been dipping in and out of craft for many years particularly enjoyed cross stitch. I discovered a love of card making about four years ago while I was pregnant with my third child. I had played around with this craft previously but couldn’t find stamps that I really loved here in the uk, they all seemed aimed at an older generation. Pretty lace patterns and flowers just wasn’t me.

Then I discovered Americn designers with their cute critter stamps. Now that was me. I slowly built up my stash and discovered copic markers and that’s when it became a passion.

Going from this a year ago

To the current place I am now.

It has taken time and practice to develop the different skills I have learned such as distress ink blending and sucessfully using embossing powders.

Everything I have learned is self taught through watching my favorite crafters on YouTube and playing with my crafty stash.

I want to share my journey as it continues. So far I have learned it’s ok to make mistakes, it’s all part of the joutney. Nobody is perfect and beauty is in the eye of the beholder. Your work is unique to you and that’s what makes it special. For me it’s about doing something I enjoy and being pleased with the end result, which is not always as I had planned when I started the design.

I look forward to sharing my cards and craft with you.
