November Sketch - Take 2

Hi everyone, it's Lynda here and I'd just like to show another card I made using this month's sketch and also the scraps left over from my first card. Hope you like it.

I'd also like to take this opportunity to thank Kathy, Bev and Jackie for asking me to join this great little team and to introduce myself properly.

I've been card making now for about 4 or 5 years and I'm absolutely addicted to it. At first I attended local crafting classes getting to know the ins and outs of stamping, embossing, die cutting etc. You name it I wanted to try it. I was amazed at just how much you could actually do with paper and glue lol. I started my blog nearly a couple of years ago when the lovely Kirsty Wiseman asked me to join her Design Team and it's just snowballed since then. I'm also on the Design Team for Daring Cardmakers, Craftwork Cards and now Kathy's Waffle Sketch File.

I've always crafted one way or another all of my life - knitting, crocheting, tapestry, rug making, pressed flowers, dough craft - just to name a few but my major passion before card making was pottery. I had my own little workshop and produced decorative pottery which I sold at local craft fairs. When clay work became too heavy I had to find something else to do and I'm so glad I found paper and glue. The rest they say 'is history'.
