Just having a quick re-organisation so that you can see the sketch and the cards from the Design Squad all in one place!
The August Sketch

Projects by Kathy
Hi my name is Bev, I live in a little village in Cambridgeshire UK.
I run a business from home with my hubby Andy, who I have been married to for 21yrs.
I have 2 children; my son is 19 and my daughter 16 (just finished doing her GCSE’s)
We have a gorgeous Border collie called Tazz who is 18 months old. He is a real little character
I used to make Jewellery until a dear friend said "you should make handmade cards, you would be brill at it." So I listened to her, and 6 yrs on not looked back. Just running out of space as I am limited. I do a lot of my card making on my lap or on the floor.
I do more card making than anything else, but willing to give something different a try anytime.
At the moment I am addicted to colouring with my copics, I only really got into rubber stamps just before Christmas last year.
I am so chuffed to have been asked to join the design team at kathys waffle sketch file blog.
"Like many crafters I started at the age of about 4 or 5 when my grandmother taught me to knit. Later I learnt to sew and I used to make my own dolls clothes! I progressed to making my own clothes through taking needlework at school then cross stitch but always fell back on knitting. I eventually went on to knit samples for Edina Ronay and Sirdar. (For those old enough to remember, Selina Scott wore one of my sweaters on The Clothes Show)
About seven years ago I decided to make some cards for hubby to give to clients …….he’s a part time DJ, and the rest, as they say, is history. I went on to start making wedding stationery and started my own company, Party Nights Creations. I love rubber stamping as I am not in the least bit artistic (unless stick men count J). I also love ribbon and simple uncluttered work. I really enjoy scrap booking too (and buying goodies) and use this as one of my methods of relaxation. I dabble with beads too and love Swarovski crystals.
I love my design team work, the constant learning involved and the chance to work along side international crafters. I’ve seen my work in print a couple of times as I’ve been runner up in a couple of national card making competitions. My work also features regularly on Create and Craft. I would really love to be a permanent freelance designer for mags and/or manufacturers etc……it doesn’t hurt to dream!
I am so excited about having been asked to join Kathy’s design team. I thought I had the perfect job before but it has definitely just got better."
