I have crafted all my life and was introduced to knitting and embroidery by my very talented Mother. Crafting was always a hobby but after the two girls were born I had some time on my hands and I taught myself how to use a knitting machine. I ended up with six machines and a small business that I loved. I designed one-off outfits for customers and loved every minute. In the end persistent back problems put a stop to the business and I was at a low ebb for a while.
A friend suggested that I try card-making and about a year later I did. The rest is history. I love anything to do with my hobby and my style is very eclectic. I love to try new things and techniques and I find I'm never bored as there is always something new to learn.
I've been card making for six years or so and have accumulated far too much stuff which is why the digi stamps are so useful - I don't need yet another box to store them!
I'm looking forward to my month with the Stamping Boutique and to playing with my new images.
Patch, I love the all the layering and wonderful soft colors she used with this image. Head over to Edna's blog to check out all the details on her card, as well as more of her amazing work!
