Tuesday Spotlight

This Tuesday in our Spotlight we have one of our new Guest designers
So now you get to know her better and see what she's already made with the Sassy's

This is what she told me about her project:
It's a small card in a box, the pattern is a chocolate package; the stamp is of course the High School Student, but I used it to congratulate a friend of mine which in a few weeks will start to work in a new school as a Maths teacher, I thought the image looks like a young teacher as well!

*Start by telling us a little about you:
Hi, I'm Alina, I live in a small village in the south of Holland, I'm married and have a daughter.

*When did you start card making and what made you start?
I started about 12 years ago. I was looking for a new hobby, after years of knitting and sewing and embroidery. I had nothing to do on a Sunday afternoon and went to visit my SIL and she showed me some of her punches and hand-made cards. The next morning I bought my first two punches and some cardstock and from that moment couldn't stop anymore making my own cards.

*What is your preferred coloring medium?
Well, I love the colour pencils. I have a small box with Prisma pencils and lots of Derwents.

*What is your fav Simply Sassy stamp?
At this moment, without any doubts, the Retail Therapy: I just love her outfit!

*How did you notice the Simply Sassy stamps the first time?
I can't remember this, but I must have seen them on the blogs which I follow.

*What is your favourite style (card making)?
I don't have one, I just like a card or another project, I visit so many different blogs.

*And what would you love to see more of at the Simply Sassy blog?
I've been following you for quite a while and I think everything is just fine: lots of examples easy to find because of the labels, blog hops and prizes, featured artists, so I can only say keep up the good work!

And here are some of the gorgeous Sassy's from her blog:
