Ihave only been making cards since July 2009, was going to be off work for a long period after an operation so wanted to do something to keep me occupied and now i can't stop. I made all my own christmas cards, and birthday cards for my family and friends. I did like to do decoupage, but the last time i did any of that was 2002 just after my third daughter was born then i started studying for a BA degree in Early Years education so my crafting took a back step. Now i've got stuck back into it i find it so relaxing and rewarding when you see peoples faces when they recieve a hand made card. I've already got orders for xmas cards for this year and i am looking forward to getting started.
