Di says, "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 was always drawing. I started cardmaking about 4yrs 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 this then 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!"

Here's my card for our challenge~


 I've used a fairy image off of a collage sheet from Swing Shift Designs. Added some vintage embellishments including hand crocheted flower from my dear friend Ellen at In a World of Craft to keep with the Victorian feel of the image.  I adore how this card turned out--it's not a style I usually create, but I LOVE it! :)

So, what are you going to create for us to see this week?  I can't wait to see! :) Happy crafting! :)

A stunning card Mynnette with a beautiful image & lots of gorgeous embellies. Thanx for your comment on my CCM card, I think you've mistaken me for Susie as she is leaving the DT not me.
