Tuesday Spotlight...

This Tuesday we have sweet Lisa in our spotlight

And she made this beautiful card for us ♥♥

*Start by telling us a little about you:
I’m Lisa, and I live in Sheffield with my husband and 2 young sons – oh, and one spoilt cat :o)

*When did you start card making and what made you start?
I've always been fairly crafty, starting out with knitting and embroidery as a child. Then 4 yrs ago, after a normal full term pregnancy, we had a stillborn son. For a few months I went to pieces, work (kindly) offered me voluntary redundancy as I couldn't have gone back and eventually I needed something to fill my days while our eldest son was at school. I wandered into Hobbycraft, picked up a card making magazine and the obsession began! I think I was convinced making my own cards would actually save us money, but I dread to think how much I've spent over the years! Cardmaking has kept me going though when I've had some very low days, so it's been worth every penny, and I now have a great 'hobby' that I don't think I'll ever get bored of.

*What is your preferred coloring medium?
I nearly always colour with promarkers, but I often add a bit of shading using koh-i-noor pencils.

*What is your fav Simply Sassy stamp?
That's a really difficult one! I like lots of them, for all different reasons, but I do have a bit of a soft spot for Bella Bunting.

*How did you notice the Simply Sassy stamps the first time?
I’m going to be totally honest – when I saw the first set of Simply Sassy stamps on the Sugar Nellie blog, I wasn’t sure if I liked them!… however, once I’d seen them around blogland for a while I fell in love with them and bought all of the second set when it was released.

*What is your favourite style (card making)?
I love all different styles, but I’m a fairly CAS cardmaker myself… I really admire people who make beautifully embellished designs, because they just don’t come naturally to me at all.

*And what would you love to see more of at the Simply Sassy blog?
I think it’s just right as it is – lots of lovely regular inspiration and I love that Simply Sassy fans get a chance to be in the spotlight too.

I want to show you some of the beautiful Sassy card from her blog too, but you need to go over there and see the rest for your self ;)
