Tuesday Spotlight

This week we have a very sweet crafter named

Mary J joining us...

I have known Mary J for over a year and have always loved her beautiful cards.  I'm sure you will love them too.

Here is what Mary J made for us today

Using Cinders

Here is a little about Mary J and some of the beautiful cards from her blog:

*Start by telling us a little about you:
Well, how to cut down 43 years in a paragraph...lol! In short, I am married to Steve (been together for over 14 years) and we live in a small village in East Sussex in the South East of England with our two Yellow Labradors, Poppy (4) and Lulu (2). Work-wise I am a project manager based in Central London. We do a lot of walking and spend a lot of time with our families. Our dream is to emigrate and own a beach front house in New Zealand or Australia - perhaps one day!

*When did you start card making and what made you start?
I first became aware of cardmaking when a work colleague sold her cards at work. Then, when Steve and I decided to get married 4 years ago, I decided to make my own wedding stationery. I was very proud of it but looking at them now, I'm embarrassed! Hey, we learn and grow huh?!!

*What is your preferred coloring medium?
I love to watercolour using my Aqua Promarkers, but I end up using my Copics for ease!

*What is your fav Simply Sassy stamp?
Well it was Spread Your Wings - I just love the whimsical look on her face with her huge thoughtful eyes! But I bought the November set #11 and now my fave has to be Cinders!

*How did you notice the Simply Sassy stamps the first time?
I was already a regular customer of Funky Kits so when Simply Sassy popped into the shop, it was love at first sight!

*What is your favourite style (card making)?
I love to experiment so my style can vary a lot from clean lines to shabby chic. The most common theme though through all my cards is lots and lots of layers!

*And what would you love to see more of at the Simply Sassy blog?
I love the blog just the way it is - the inspiration, the spotlights, the challenges - so continue with that please!

Thank you Mary J for letting us Spotlight you and your fabulous cards!

Please leave Mary J some sweet comments.
