Hi, I’m Debbie, Mum to 3 boys Jamie 29 Aaron 27 & Jack 14 and Grandma to Oliver 18 months and Lola 17 months and I’m not even 50 yet!!!!

I never considered myself to be very artistic and then I discovered scrapbooking about 4-5 years ago when I stopped smoking and wanted something to do in the evenings. I saw a craft programme on TV, ordered the kit, bought a few more things, stored them in 3 stacking boxes, crafted at the kitchen table, bought more stash, discovered stamping and card making (quicker end result than scrapbooking) moved into the dining room, acquired a set of craft drawers, bought even more stash and now have my own little crafty haven full to bursting but very loved and visited practically every day.

I have had my blog for just over 3 year and I am lucky enough to be on some wonderful Design Teams.

I am blessed to have made a number of wonderful friends through crafting and blogging.

I am thrilled to be Guest Designer for Loves Rubberstamps and hope that you feel inspired to join us.

We want to thank all of our players last week! We had some really beautiful entries!! The winner of our Pinterest Inspirational Photo Challenge will receive a gift voucher to shop in our store - Loves Rubberstamps! This week's winner according to random.org is

While creating cards that include coloring stamped images has been rewarding and relaxing for me, I have never been more fulfilled and creative than when I realized my true passion is in shaped cards and SVG files cut files. Being limited only by my imagination and love to inspire others to do the same is my middle name. Shape EZ templates by TLC w/Whimsy make your projects quick and "EZ" depending on you. They include options, empowering you to choose to include extras such as windows, pockets, or even inserts of designer paper. Shape EZ is an affordable product you can use over and over again.
