Tuesday Spotlight

This Tuesday we're putting the Spotlight on Sugar Bowl Sweetie and Queen of C&S

Ali has made this gorgeous card for us

Using Hippie Chick

*Start by telling us a little about you:My name is Ali and I live on a small  island on the West Coast of Scotland. I'm a wife to a very tolerent guy, mum of 3 and i have 3 adorable grandsons too. They are my life. I'm have crafted for most of my life in one way or another. My gran taught me to knit and crochet when i was 4.......

 *When did you start card making and what made you start?I started when my grandfather used to doodle me images to colour in when I was young I would sit for hours colouring them in with my pens and pencils. It continued from there watching TV Art programs collecting kitchen roll tubes, cereal boxes which I still do to this day. I started making cards for family and friends with the images and the rest is history. So a very long time.....

 *What is your preferred coloring medium?I love watercolouring however I also love my prismacolor pencils. I have promarkers too but just can't seem to get the hang of them.

 *What is your fav Simply Sassy stamp?Erm do i have to choose???  I love them all really however I do have a soft spot for Hippie Chick.

 *How did you notice the Simply Sassy stamps the first time?I have been a huge Sugar Nellie fan for a very long time and I was lucky enough to be on the Design Team for a short time until I unfortunately had to withdraw. I'm still a huge fan!! Once a Sugar Addict always a Sugar Addict.

 *What is your favourite style (card making)?I think I would have to say Clean and Simple (CAS) creations and I adore White on White which Karen nicked named WoW

 *And what would you love to see more of at the Simply Sassy blog?I think its great the way it is to be honest.... fab tutorials, regular blog hops and fantastic inspiration from the team. Your team rocks!!
