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!

Using my time well

Since breaking my ankle, all I have really been able to do is colour, so I have searched the Internet and found a whole bunch of challenge blogs to occupy my time!

The following card I am entering in two challenges:

I have used Bazzill Bling in a lime green for the base, added Kindy Glitz to the Green Tara flowers, added Kaisercraft pearls and diamantes and Kindy Glitz to the centre of all the flowers on the patterned paper. My C.C Designs stamp, I also attacked with Kindy Glitz (on wings and hair ties) and then I used a clear Spica pen to outline her dress and boots, and also through her hair.
Copics used : hair E53, E31, E33; skin Eoo, E51, E53; dress: YG00, YG03, YG06; boots and top: RV10, RV13, RV17; wings: RV000, RV02, RV05

Thanks for taking a look, hope you are enjoying your Christmas holidays! xoxox
