Hi everyone!

My name is Karen, I live on the (sometimes) sunny NSW Central Coast, have a partner who has three great kids, have 4 1/2 dogs (share one with the partner), and am discovering the world of paper crafts and scrapbooking!

Started scrapbooking approx 5 yr ago, and have realised it's an ever evolving craft ... so many new things, techniques etc coming out all the time - it's hard to keep up! For example, recently discovered Copic markers - oh what fun we are having now! As a consequence, my house is always one of organised chaos lol.

I fund my hobbies (or habits, I haven't decided which yet) working as a pet groomer here on the coast, which also caters for my love of animals. I have been showing dogs since I was 8 yr old, and will never be with a canine companion. Next year, hopefully one of the girls will be having puppies - a whole new subject to scrap!

Three challenges, one card!

This is my latest "creation" - after getting a whole bunch of new Copics for Christmas, I have been busily experimenting with new colour combinations, and have been leaning towards a lot of pink based cards (and I'm not really a pink person lol) I also managed a day out, complete with crutches, and had to visit my local scrapbook store, where I found the new range of Kaisercraft papers, "English Rose", which are so pretty!

Anyhoo, Copics used are:
Hair - E53, E31, E33
Skin - E00, E51, E53
Dress - G12, G21, G24, RV10, R83, R85
Misc - YR02, YR04, YR07, B93, B95, B97, V12, V15, V17, R32, R35, R37, G21, G24, G28
I also used a clear Spica pen to highlight the folds in the dress, and the roses on the patterned paper, Green Tara flowers to compliment, with Kaisercraft pearls.


I hope you enjoy looking at these blogs - the work of the respective Design Teams is absolutely amazing! And thanks for looking at my work - hope you all have a great day!
