Spotlight on Debbie

This week our spotlight is on Sassy crafter Debbie
I know a few of you wanted her in the spotlight :)
 I had already asked her but Debbie is a busy crafter, but as Karen told me a few months ago , good things come to those who wait.. and as with all my Spotlight girls I asked then to make us a brand new card.
Look at this stunning card Debbie sent me!! WOW! 

I also ask the girls to answer a few questions:

*Start by telling us a little about you:
I live with my partner , son and 2 daughters on the NE coast of Scotland.
I’m self-employed and also run a small support charity for parents and carers of children with additional needs as well as being the Letraset Product Coach for Scotland and I do the odd demonstration and classes here in the NE of Scotland

*When did you start card making and what made you start?
I started card-making back in 2007 and then moved onto scrapbooking in an attempt to make baby books for each of my children. Then in January 2009 I fell in love with a Sugar Nellie stamp I saw on someone’s blog and was hooked, that’s when I started stamping and when I bought my very first promarkers.

*What is your preferred coloring medium?
I’m a promarker girl through and through but have been known to use Aquamarkers on occasion and I have a sneaky wee set of Martha Stewart colouring pencils that get an airing once in a while.

*What is your fav Simply Sassy stamp?
I think it would have to be Pillow Talk, there’s just so much attitude in that pose and she personifies “Sassy”, she’s a dream to colour and is perfect for teaching colouring techniques with.

*How did you notice the Simply Sassy stamps the first time?
Because I’m a huge Sugar Nellie fan and I always keep an eye on what Karen brings us.

*What is your favourite style (card making)?
I don’t really have a “style” I like a challenge and I’ll give most things a try, but I do love to work from sketches when I’m making cards, it takes the hard work out of it for me and leaves me free to get creative. But I am very inspired by some of the girls who have made CAS an artform.

*And what would you love to see more of at the Simply Sassy blog?
I’d love to see the occasional competition or challenge,
maybe every time there’s a new release? Pretty please?

I have also been snooking around in Debbi's awesome blog and found these amazing cards:
