Happy Monday everyone, we are another day closer to Santa arriving - yay. It’s Andrea here with my very first post as a Doodlelicious Diva – yippee. I am so thrilled to be part of this fantastic team. We have a great bunch of talented ladies, your going to be blown away with their makes!
So, a little about myself…..I’m a Scottish girl but I'm currently living 'down under' in sunny Sydney, Australia! I decided to take a few months off work in 2010 to see the world... and I never quite made it back home!! On my travels I was lucky enough to meet some fantastic people one being my husband! Travelling is definitely one of my passions, the other is, you've guessed it....making cards!
I first gave card-making a try way back in 2007. I bought a ton of supplies but only ended up making a handful of cards before work, life and then travel got in the way. I decided to take it up again about a year ago and was amazed at how much it had changed – so many supplies, dies, digital sites and I discovered Copics!! Now I’m absolutely obsessed and my stash is growing at a phenomenal rate! There are just so many awesome products out there that I just have to have! I’ve been a huge fan of Whimsie Doodles ever since I first discovered digital stamps. I love how adorable and fun they are. If I had to describe my style I would say clean and layered with added cute - that's where Melyssa images come in! You may have already seen a couple of my makes as I was lucky enough to be guest designer for Whimsie Doodles in November :)
Talking of cute, for my card today I have used the adorable Winter Lizzie.
I have made a Christmas card here but she could just as easily be used for a winter birthday card too.
I love her outfit, she looks so warm and cozy. I used a mixture of dies and a stencil to create the wintery scene. For her fluffy hood and boots I used white Flowersoft and Stickles Glitter Glue. Here's a close-up.
That's it from me today. I wish everyone a very Merry Christmas and hope Santa is good to you and fills your stockings with crafting goodies.
Feel free to come and visit me at weeblueswirls.blogspot.com.au. I’m a blogging newbie and would love to make some crafty friends.
See you all next year!
Hugs Andrea x
