Sketches! Guest Designer: Bev Rochester

I am excited to announce this weeks Sketches! Guest Designer is:

Bev Rochester

Hiya, I'm Bev and am so excited to be this weeks guest designer. When Tamara emailed me to ask I was dumbfounded lol.

I've been married to my best friend for 32 years, have two children and 2 grandchildren. I got into cardmaking by accident about 3 years ago. I was going to eggcraft classes and the girls were talking about the new cardmaking craze. "I'll never do that" I said - well, never say never cos I am so passionate about paper it's taken over my life (and my home!!) My hubby is busy converting the garage into a craft room for me as I have outgrown the big spare bedroom that is my current craft room. I can safely say I am addicted!!! In fact I have to force myself to go to work five days a week to fund my addiction.

I started a blog in April (another one of those never say never moments - I was Never going to start blogging!)

I have gone way back and chosed Card Sketch 3, it's an oldie but a goodie and perfect for the larger stamps. I've used Charlotte in her Sledge by Whiff of Joy stamps, which I've coloured with Distress Inks and Twinkling H2O's (my other addiction). Stamping is my favourite medium, I mainly tend to stick to that now. I love how you can take one stamp and get so many different looks from it.

A huge thanks to Tamara for giving me this opportunity.

Hugs, Bev x

I asked Bev to choose a card sketch to use and she chose card sketch #3.

And this is her card she made using that sketch.

Congrats! Your card is so fun, kinda reminds me of the movie How the Grinch stole Christmas and the scene when the little dog was trying to pull the sleigh. Too fun!!
Take care.
