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!

Tickled Pink Challenge No. 1

As I am laid up with a broken ankle atm, and still have another 3 weeks off work, I have been doing *heaps* of colouring, and creating cards, so for a little while, I will be entering online challenges at the rate of one challenge/one card ... this way, I get to post all my cards on my blog (well, nearly all of them!)

This card, using Lil Lolita's Willow, I am entering in the Tickled Pink Stamps No.1 Challenge for 2011 - "Anything Goes!" Tickled Pink Stamps have a new challenge blog for the start of 2011 - make sure you add it to your list, and check it out!

Anyhoo, for this card, I used card stock embossed with dots, a lovely semi flocked wedding style paper I found at the local scrapbook shop, and to bring the colours of Willow into the card, used a journal tag from the Kaisercraft English Rose collection (fallen in love with this range).
Copics used :
Hair/skin : E00, E51, E53, E31, E33
Dress/bows/sox : RV000, RV10, RV02, RV13, R83
Flowers etc: Y15, G21, V12, V15, V17

Thanks for looking, enjoy your day!
