I have been card making since 2004, after being inspired by a friend who made her wedding stationery I came across Blade Rubber Stamps while working in London and bought a few bits, then I was hooked! Now I have a craft room full of stuff. I have always crafted things for nearly as long as I can remember - card making filled a need to make and finish things in very little time, and be able to give a little happiness to friends and family. I became a Granny in 2012, it is great! I am a qualified Management Accountant and I took early retirement from the Civil Service, and haven't looked for work since. I am challenge coordinator, DT member and point of contact for the Quirky Crafts Challenge blog, which is an unpaid job but fun.
By the way I moderate all comments so they don't appear right away!
