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!

Some recent creations ...

Although I haven't posted on here for a while, I haven't been idle. Instead I've been sitting at home, and while watching tv, I've been colouring and making cards just because I felt like it ... no challenges entered, I just got in a mood to create. Now I just have to switch that mood from cards to scrapbooking, and catch up on all the pages I need to do - I have so many photos printed off, and that's as far as I have got. But you have to agree (especially if you are reading this, you probably will) cardmaking is addictive ... I know that I haven't stopped cruising the net looking at stamps, dreaming of which Copic Markers to buy next, and looking at the amazing creations out there in blog-world - there are so many talented people out there! Plus, seeing as I can't help myself and constantly make cards, I am considering applyingfor a spot at a local craft market in August to sell my cards ( I also do other "crafty" things, so I wouldn't be limited to just cards, but as you all know, it becomes a time thing)

Anyway, here are some of my latest cards ... enjoy!!

This is one of my first gateway style cards, and I made this one for a friend after they lost their dog to a snake bite
