Where do I start?....

For weeks now I've admired other blogs & read through with interest, wanting to start my own. My biggest problem, what to call it, as every time I entered a name it was already in use.
So, here I am 'curly girly me' name says it all really. As yet not to sure how I'm going to do this, but I'm sure I'll find out.

My hobby, passion, & at some points pain is crafting, I love making cards & desperately want to get into scrapbooking. (but never have the time) I started this addictive passtime last year, my sis-in-law was already making beautiful cards & she encouraged me to have a go, the rest as they say is history.

I joined 'Docrafts' to help me along the way (my docrafts name 'kerryjo') & in doing so have got to know lots of lovely, very talented people. At first I didn't have a clue how to do anything, but decided the best way to learn was to have a go & play. This then led to me finding 'my style'. I kept asking my sil how would I know what I liked doing, she would answer "you'll just find out.."

What is 'my style' you ask, well I love beautiful papers, ribbons, brads, colours.........the norm really, but what I do like to do is doodle my own images to use on my cards. Having not picked a pencil up (for drawing) since I left school a few years back I've really enjoyed getting back into drawing & doodling. This has then led to other things but I won't bore you with that now, maybe later.

Now I've babbled on enough here are a few of the last cards I made with one of my drawings......




This is a lil girl I drew a few weeks ago & thought she was quite cute.

Dotty paper pink petticoat, you can't see very well but it's a lovely mint green.











Here I used shabby princess paper & added a bit of embossing, still think its fab when the powder does its magic!



I enjoyed making this one, again I used shabby princess papers, (some of my favs) & followed a tutorial for the card from splitcoast stampers.
I was pleased with how this one turned out.
Hopefully as I get into this blogging lark I'll put more of my cards on here & babble on a bit more.
For anyone who has got this far, thank you for having a nosey.
