Tuesday Spotlight

Hi, me again with another fabby spotlight for you! This week we're featuring the amazingly talented Lis, I simply fell in love with her colouring, isn't it gorgeous! Here's what she has to share with us:

Using Party Frills

*Start by telling us a little about you
I am forty-three, I am married to John . I have 2 daughters and 2 step-children. They have all left home now, so I get a craft room ..yay!
I work, dispensing medicines in the local doctors surgery. It can be very stressful, and the days are long.. so crafting is my way to unwind.

*When did you start card-making and what made you start?
I have been card making for over 10 years now.. I purchased a few things from the shopping channels and the rest they say, is history....
I think the intention was to make cards with my young daughters... but for me , it become a passion...
I am a true rubber stamp lover... and I love all things girly and sweet..

*What is your preferred coloring medium?
Well... that's tricky to answer.. I had a few prismas.. and wasn't too delighted with the results .. then along came Promarkers.. and I had to have a few Copics.. and I had to have a few Spectrums.. I am a real "marker tart" ! lol!

Using Romantic Dreamer (not in stock at the mo')

*What is your fave Simply Sassy stamp?
Another tricky one... I love so many of them.. I do love party frills , and i love Pillow talk... I really need to get a couple of Christmas Sassy's next.. All wrapped up is a must....

*How did you notice the Simply Sassy stamps the first time?
I bought Gorjuss stamps from funkykits many moons ago.. as I LOVE Gorjuss.. I have lots of Gorjuss stuff...lol! of course, blog hopping I came across the Sugar Nellie blog.. and instantly fell in love with Sassy's...

*What is your favourite card-making style?
I don't know if I have a style that I like most... I love beautiful papers and I love beautiful images to colour... I can spend hours just colouring...
So my style tends to be shabby but neat.. if that makes sense..?
I am a neat freak.. even when I try grunge and distressed....lol!

*And what would you love to see more of at the Simply Sassy blog?
All I can say is... keep them coming.. I love all the inspiration from the DT.. I love the hops... one day I will be lucky and win a candy..lol !
I love it all... you can never have too much .....
and you get to share with all the lovely girlies out there in blog land...

Using Pillow Talk

  5. I really like the vintage yet modern look of these cards - can't quite put my finger on what it is that is so distinctive but it's there. I think my favourite is PillowTalk - theose gorgoeus papers & the way the squares work together in the design.
