THIS IS ME...

Hi fellow crafting friends.. I am married and have been for 18 years, we have 2 children who are 17 and 14 and getting more complicated as they get older! I love my crafting.. though mainly cardmaking, it keeps me busy and off the (high)street, apart from our local craft shop where I am a frequent visitor. I have been crafting for about 6 year, it started with putting a few cut out easter eggs on some cards for people and just grew to what it is now, I have taken over the dinning room, garage and I have the cupboard under the stairs to.. one day I hope to convert the garage into a proper craft room. We live in Leicestershire but are orginally from Exeter in Devon. We moved here after a short stint in Bedfordshire but have been here for 8 years in October, its the longest we have ever been in one place for! My husband is an aircraft engineer but I dont really share his love of metal flying machines! Just cars and crafting!

Inspired by Collaging



I love these postcards and they make excellent
central pictures for these cards.



I'm on a roll!




Here are a couple more that I have done.




I just love collages and love having a go but never get the form of collage that I want. I thought that I would have a go at this one and see how it turns out.
I love the inspiring cards of Beata Ewas cards (see her blog below) and the manic stamper (also below) and aspire to do as well with collaging as they do.. I could do with some lessons from them!
Anyway, I am going to keep going with them and see if I get better, any advice by the way would be great!
