Pat from Paper, Markers, Ink, Oh My!
Hi, my name is Pat K.  Thank you so much for having me as your GD this week.   My first venture into paper crafting was scrapbooking but I soon moved on to card making.    I love to colour, with Copics being my first choice. My passion for paper has resulted in a very large collection and now it looks like dies are a close second!  Digital stamps are my favourite, mostly for their convenience.  My style is rather eclectic….one day I love CAS and the next I want to go all fussy and fancy…depending on the image or the recipient.  I hope you enjoy my creation today.  Hugs, Pat K.

Vanessa from Saffire's Stamping 
I live in Peterborough in the UK with my partner of many many years and our very spoilt kitty Tallulah. I started card making about 10 years ago as something to do during the long summer holidays. I find it relaxes and de-stresses me no end after a long week teaching a lively class of 7-8 year olds! I love colouring with my Copics and most of my cards are full of die cuts and ribbon along with other embellishments. I also love a bit of pink!

Andrea from SheepSki Designs
 Andrea here, you may know me from SheepSki Designs my blogs name.  Living in Yorkshire in the UK I work full time as an accountant and personal assistant and have hobbies such as competitive badminton and dancing (Argentine tango & Ceroc).  I work for four different design teams at present.  I have no actual style as such but I do like quirky and unusual images and I may be known for soft pastel colours.  I started my blog just over a year ago when I really got into making cards.  In the past I’ve used mainly ProMarkers but have a stock of mediums to hand now - polychromos & Lyra pencils and Copics.  I occasionally paint with watercolours but have recently discovered the world of mixed media – so I started an art journal and produce occasional mixed media canvases.
