Sketches! Guest Designer: Marcia Pringle

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


I’m Marcia and I live in Perth, Western Australia. I’m married to the most gorgeous man and mum to one beautiful daughter. I work part time in customer service.

I have been cardmaking for about 6 years with my first foray into paper craft being when I made my wedding invitations nine years ago. A couple of years back a friend invited me to a Stampin Up demonstration when they launched in Australia and the rest is history. I haven’t looked back and hubby has stopped looking at the sales receipts.

After gentle (and not so gentle) persuasion by family and friends, I recently took the giant leap of pushing forward with my special occasion invitations and stationery business. Since mid 2008 I have been flat out with orders and I have enjoyed bringing something special to the events of my clients. The business is growing and it is such a nice thing to turn something you love into a steady income stream.

I set myself some goals for 2009 – the main one to be published. So far my work has had a publishing call on it twice and I have been or soon to be guest designer for two different challenge sites. Always doubting my own ability it has been a nice boost to my confidence and shows that anyone can do it if they put their mind to it!

Thank you so much for the chance to be guest designer at Sketches this week – I am truly honoured to be part of the wonderful talent here!

I asked Marcia to choose a Card Sketch to work with and she chose Sketch #65.

And here is her her card using the Sketch.
