Challenge Winner …

 

 

Good morning crafters, I have something a bit different to share with you today

Remember our 9th birthday celebrations not long ago? We had a birthday card competition and the 3 lucky winners got, as part of their prize, the chance to feature on our blog as a guest designer

Today I’d like you to meet the first of our winners   …it’s the lovely Lorraine and I’m sure a few of her will know her work already

Here’s a little bit about her…

I'm currently a stay at home Mum with two young children

I have been crafting for most of my life, anything from sewing and painting to card making. I only discovered the world of stamping and blogging at the end of 2011. Since then my addiction to pretty papers and rubber stamps has become more apparent. 

I have been lucky enough to be invited to join several design teams, these are

Joanna Sheen

A little bit Crafty

I love Promarkers

Winter Wonderland

Without Words

Di's Digi Designs

Lilies Little Fairies

I am absolutely thrilled to be one of the lucky winners of the LOTV birthday competition, and want to say a big thank you for picking my card

***

Lorraine has made 6 lovely pieces of work for us today. I’m going to put the first three on here and Lucy will show the other three over on Facebook so make sure you stop by and see those also

First up is this lovely candle, this is quite appropriate because one of the workshops we are holding at our open day on June 1st is candle stamping so if you would like to have a go then have a look on the website for more details

Thanks for joining us Lorraine  …and congratulations on being one of our winners

I know that Lorraine is a big Lili of the Valley fan and often visits us at the shows so she was really pleased to be picked
