This is the card I designed for my sister's birthday at the end of March. I was pleased with the way this turned out, it's delicate and lacy but strong enough to stand nicely and fold flat for posting. I cut the base card in centura pearl 300 gsm and cut panels from one of the lovely in lace papers. The centre circle is also from Kanban's lovely in lace collection and I have adhered some lace round the edge of that to complete the look. Once I have tidied up my working file I shall post it on the UKS site. My sis was delighted with her card!
I retired from my job as a legal secretary just over 10 years ago and was then able to devote a lot more time to my passion for cardmaking and scrapbooking, although I have to say that I do far more cardmaking than scrapping.
About 8 years ago I bought a craft robo and entered a whole new dimension of crafting. I started to design my own templates and have now developed my own style. When the Cameo was released with its larger capacity and deeper cutting I was in 7th heaven, apart from initial problems with the new ratchet blade (which have now been sorted).
I derive enormous pleasure from designing, cutting and assembling my designs and sharing them freely with others on the UKS site (for personal use).
I have four grandchildren, ranging in age from 23 years down to 8 years. I am enormously proud of my children and of my grandchildren. I love being a grandma - such a special relationship, quite different to a mother/child relationship. Crafting has brought me solace during difficult times and so much pleasure.
