About Me - Extended

Card making has been my hobby for many years now and I enjoy it SO much!  Once a month I run a card making group for a bunch of lovely ladies.  I also run occasional card classes at my home for friends.  For a short while in 2015 I worked as a tutor running classes at the Glitter Pot shop.  That very sadly came to an end when the bricks and mortar shop closed down and turned into an online business only.  

I have served on design teams at various challenge blogs - 52 {C}CTHouse of Cards, Inkspirational plus the Simply Stampin' Challenge which closed in 2012.  I reluctantly gave up design team work when I had to return to work.  Having a job and currently also a hubby recovering from a serious illness means I don't get as much crafting time as I'd like.  I do craft whenever I can and always share my creations on the blog.  I enjoy taking part in some of the many challenges around blogland -  but I haven't done that in a long while - I'm hoping to do more of that!  

Classic and elegant is my usual style but I do enjoy creating a cute and fun project every now and again!  I make cards mostly but venture into home decor occasionally.  You'll see lots of flowers and butterflies on Flower Sparkle, not all that many masculine cards ('cos they don't have flowers or butterflies LOL!) and hardly any cards with images of people.  Stamping, punching and manual die cutting feature heavily - and I also love my embossing folders!

Usually I'll give directions or instructions for the projects I share on my blog plus I have a Tutorials tab where I share a few 'how tos' on the page.  I am always happy to help so please email me if you have any questions or need some info!
