Di's Digi Downloads
I have been drawing since a child and studied graphics at College many years ago, I now work as a Medical photographer part time but my love wasalways drawing. I started cardmaking about 4-yrs ago when I bought my daughter a cardmaking kit which we did together, but I’m afraid I got the bug! My daughter preferred scrapbooking. I then started looking online at other blogs and thisthen became my passion and I loved sharing my cards with likeminded people.
I love stamping and loved finding images, but sometimes I could not find what I wanted so I started to draw myself.
This then has become my second addiction and I have never looked back, I love thinking of new images, and its just fabulous to see others take them and make them into beautiful works of art. Long may it continue!

Offering a $10.00 Voucher to Di's Digi Downloads!

Please join us in Welcoming our Guest Designer this week!!

My name is Patricia but I am known in blog land as Pinky. I have been card making a long time and feel I am still on a learning curve. I love the abundance of inspiration I get from blogger and face book. There is so much talent out there.
I am a retired Special Needs Assistant and now make cards on a daily basis. My cards are 99% commissioned which pays for my lovely must have craft stash!
I have recently become a granny and only beginning to realize how easily the rascal can tire me out lol. Need to get him into cardmaking as soon as he can hold a pencil.
