Tuesday Spotlight

Today I want to introduce you to a big Sugar Nellie and Simply Sassy fan

She made this sweet card for us using Retail Therapy  

Just look at the Sassy Pink highlights in her hair ♥

*Start by telling us a little about you:
I'm married with 5 children. Having that many kiddies helps to keep me just a little crazy.
It's how I like it. Smiles.

*When did you start card making and what made you start?
I started card making around 6years ago, and it was a friend who turned up at my house with a quilling magazine that got me started. From there I went out and bought my very first crafting magazine, used up all of the freebies that came with it, and have been hooked ever since really.

Using Windswept

*What is your preferred coloring medium?
I love my Copics unreservedly. I also have a large soft spot for Pencils and my Zest It blending oil. But Copics will always be my first choice and most used medium.

*What is your fav Simply Sassy stamp?
Hmmm... now this is a tough one for me. There are so many that I love! How is a girl to choose just one?! Okay, I think if I truly have to be pinned down to just the one Sassy, it would have to be Windswept. Because she looks how I would love to look after doing the school run. Instead of how we all look in real life. (I'm laughing here guys.)

*How did you notice the Simply Sassy stamps the first time?
From all of the simply fabulous cards on The Sugar Nellie Facebook Page,
and of course The Simply Sassy Blog! (Smiles.)

*What is your favourite style (card making)?
Hmm... Another toughy to answer. I don't know that I really have a style. Unless you count using large square spaces as having a style. Hehe. I love trying all sorts of different styles. I adore visiting lots of different blogs and picking up different things to try out and mix n match on my own cards.

Using Tiffany 

*And what would you love to see more of at the Simply Sassy blog?
Ermmmm.... More Sassy cards! Lol.. Seriously there isn't much (if anything) I would change about the blog. I adore the Sassy Blog just the way it is. I love my visits there, they always leave me smiling.

Thank you Karen for letting us show your sweet cards ♥

And do leave Karen some sweet words ♥♥♥

Hugs Maria

  6. The last is my favourite - it's the mix of polka dots with checks & the fluffy fibres. I think you do have a style Karen - it's a variant of CAS it seems to me - quite distinctive. Well done on being showcased.
