Sketches! Guest Designer: Paula Atkinson

I am excited to announce that this week's Sketches! Guest Designer is:
Paula Atkinson
Paula has been a regular on the Sketches! blog using the Sketches and uploading her cards for us all to drool over. I appreciate her because knowing there is someone out there using my sketches, keeps me making more. She is good for my ego. {giggle} Paula is very talented. All you have to do is check out her blog for yourself to see. Here is what Paula has to say:
I am Paula & I recently turned 41.
I have been crafting a long time.Doing all kinds of stuff from knitting to cards.I am a scrapbooker as well as card maker but am known more for my minibooks amongst work colleauges & friends.
I love rubber stamps, Basic Grey papers & Rangers Distress Inks. I like to make my own backgrounds but love the beautiful papers on this one I made.(BG Blush) I like using brads, luggage tags & stamped sections on mydesigns.
I had a starbook published in Scrapbook Inspirations last January but the majority of my work is on my blog
I am a member of a Team & also a forum based around mixed media which is an area I am moving towards as another way to release tension after a full dayat the office. Basically Im happy if my fingers are dirty!!!

Here is the Card Sketch that Paula chose to use. It was Card Sketch #32.

And here is Paula's Card.

Paula said...

Thanks ladies.It has been an honour to be asked to come along here.
I am suffering eye strain at the moment as things have been very heavy for me at work. It has curbed my home computer time & worse my crafting. I have no damage just got to rest them & all will be well again very soon.
