              monday 15th sep 2014
I was asked by Rita  & Kath  
(Thanks Rita & Kath)
 if I'd like to join in with the Creative Bloggers Hop.  It's a continuous hop every Monday with a host of inspirational bloggers taking part every week. 
So onto the questions

1. What am I working on?
I am card maker & at the moment enjoy learning to be a colourist.

2.How does my work differ from others in my genre?
 I'm not sure really I just do what I like there are many wonderful crafters.

3. Why do I write/create what I do?   
I have always crafted but the card making
    started when I needed a therapy due to my health.

4. How does your writing/creative process work? 
 I am often inspired by the wonderful products that are available.
 This is my contribution to the creative blog hop .
 I would like to ask Linda
who is such an inspiration to all of us crafters. She is always busy I can't believe how much energy she has.

Avril who is a true inspiration and a dear friend.

I love Janets wonderful creations.
