Di's BIO:  {I've been drawing since a child and studied graphics at College many years ago, I now work as a Medical photographer part time but my love was always drawing. I started cardmaking about 4yrs ago when I bought my daughter a cardmaking kit which we did together, but I’m afraid I got the bug! My daughter preferred scrapbooking. I then started looking online at other blogs and this then became my passion and I loved sharing my cards with like-minded people.  I love stamping and loved finding images, but sometimes I couldn't find what I wanted so I started to draw myself. This then has become my second addiction and I've never looked back. I love thinking of new images, and it's just fabulous to see others take them and make them into beautiful works of art. Long may it continue! }
Giving away a generous a $12 Gift Voucher to Di's shop.
