Friday Feature: FreshnFunky Cards

1. Tell us about you and your shop.
I am a Mum to 3 huggable boys and a wife to one patient hard working man.

My wee shop on Etsy has grown out of a passion for papercrafting. I have found my creative side late in life (always failed in Art at school!!) and have discovered that I LOVE to colour and bring an image to life, then pick some gorgeous patterned papers and finally embellish the card to perfection and send someone a piece of art from my heart!! (Maybe that should be my tagline??)

My little hobby has grown from giving cards to friends to starting up my Etsy shop last year, teaching classes in my local area, designing for my favourite stamp company, Sugar Nellie and writing articles for a UK stamping magazine called Craft Stamper.

I am truly blessed and honoured to do what I love!!

2. How did you get started in your craft?
I began crafting as a creative outlet after a busy day. It grew from a few things in a box, to some stackable drawers and now to a whole room of stash!!

3. What tool can you not live without?
I can't live without my copic markers and my prismacolor pencils!!

4. What inspires you?
Colour inspires me. I look for colour combinations in home decor, in the natural world and also in the wonderful array of deisgner papers there are on the market.

5. Name one favorite item from your store.

This my favourite card as I love the warmth of the image and I adore the colours together on this card.
