Guest Designer

Cherie of All Kinds of Crafty Things

I live in Leeds in the UK and married to Rob, we have two wonderful daughters and three scrumptious grandchildren. My sister is my best friend and we love to get together and craft. I adore stamping and beautiful papers that are just too nice to use. I like cute and girly, teddies and children stamps mostly with a few flowers on the side.

I started card making about 4 years ago to raise money for our granddaughters school. Like most crafters I just had to try everything going. My love of stamping has really taken over now and find joy and relaxation in colouring the images. I did start out with water colour pencils, but I now love to use Copic markers.

I started my blog in January this year so that I could enter challenges, it's so amazing how many lovely friends are out there all over the world, i'm still in awe of it. I'm proud to be a member of the Teddy Stampers Challenge design team. Finding the Christmas Stampin' All Year Long challenge blog has given me another joy, that in creating projects like the wonderful file purse.

I enjoyed making it and Maria's tutorials are so easy to follow. I was so thrilled to be invited as a Guest Designer, although vintage is not really my style I enjoyed trying it, and have set myself a goal to do more.I hope you will be inspired to join in with this weeks challenge.
Thank you for having me..X
