Sketches! Guest Designer: Jozza Hopkins

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

Jozza Hopkins

Hi I'm Jozza (my real name is Jo but most people call me Jozza or Joz and I kinda like it!). I live in York, UK with my husband of 12 years and our 2 gorgeous daughters Abigail and Madeleine aged 7 and 3.

I started making cards very early on in my pregnancy with Madeleine to try and relax me. I'd had 2 miscarriages and needed something to take my mind off worrying. I've really loved papercrafting ever since really, although it's only this year that I've become really obsessed (hmm since I started blogging - go figure!). I'm lucky enough to be on several design teams. Funky Hand, Funky Fairys Papercrafts and also the Daring Cardmakers challenge blog. Although I do seem to make mainly cards I also love to make little gifts based on photographs of the children and I do also enjoy scrapbooking. My main problem is finding the time to fit it all in! I love to take part in challenges and I'm afraid I am addicted to blog hopping! There are so many talented people out there and I love to look at other peoples work.

In my day job I'm a Senior Radiographer in a busy district hospital. It's a job I love and I meet some really lovely people every day I'm there. Having said that if somebody were to offer me the same pay for crafting all day I'd have their hand off! A girl can dream I guess....

I can't think of anything else to say other than a huge thanks to Tamara for asking me to be a guest designer and I hope you like my card.

I asked Jozza to pick one of her favorite sketches, and she chose Card Sketch #36.

And here is the card she made with that sketch.

Goes to show that one is only limited by their imagination! Snowflakes and flowers make for a beautiful card -- and the textured background makes it perfect. Good job, Jozza!

Jozza said...

Aw thanks Tamara :o)

I think I told you the wrong sketch number though as that isn't the one I used on my card. The correct one is on my blog. Sorry hun xxx
