Welcome Andrea…

 

 

Good morning everyone…

I’m exited that we have a new member joining our fabulous Design Team, so today I’d like to welcome…

Andrea

 

Andrea

 

Hello I'm Andrea and I live near Newcastle with my family and my doggie - a cute and very spoiled Westie called Haggis who is my baby :)
I've been making cards since I was 14 and have always enjoyed crafting and making things. I've been lucky in that I've had my cards published in both American and British card making magazines and I'm on the Design Team of the Ribbon Girl and Nitwit Collections.  I love  playing with paper and pretty things and I help my Mam run The Ribbon Girl shop so we can share our love of pretty things with other crafters.
I'm a full time teacher in a school for children who have Special Needs which keeps me really busy during the week but at the weekends and during the school holidays I love taking myself off to my workroom, usually in my pyjamas! to spend the day making cards.
I've been a fan of LOTV for a long time and I'm so excited to be part of their Design Team

***

Andrea is going to be concentrating on making you lots of lovely cards that will show off our popular Art Pads, she also loves to create projects like this amazing little owl hanging that she made with our Woodland Wishes papers…

The little owl is different colours on each side, it’s gorgeous, what a lovely idea!

WOODLAND WISHES FRONT COVER

You can see all the details on Andrea’s own blog and I hope you’ll help me to give her a lovely warm welcome to Lili of the Valley

Don’t forget to leave a comment and I’ll draw a winner from them to win today’s candy. We’ll give away a taster pack of the lovely Woodland Wishes papers that Andrea used on her hanger to the lucky winner today

Our winner from Friday is Jenny, well done Jenny please send your address to erica@liliofthevalley.co.uk

Enjoy the rest of your weekend everyone, see you tomorrow

  31. Hi Andrea, so glad you have joined the team. Just showed your Owl to my daughter and she is demanding one so will be in the craft room having a go this afternoon. It is lovely, and the bells are a Super idea, you could hang it over a door to welcome people too. I adore the ribbon girl, the products and the service is so wonderful, just love how I can buy small quantities, it means I can afford to buy so much more. Welcome and I am heading straight to your blog to learn how to make that owl.
