Handmade Me to You Mother's Day Card from Kitty Frampton content image

Hi Everyone, Here is a little bit about me! I live on the south coast in Dorset with my two young daughters. I have always loved crafting since i was a child and have dabbled in just about everything from glass painting, candle making to silk painting. Card making has now become my passion and I have made cards for the last 10 years. I love all aspects of cardmaking from stamping to decoupage and I love getting messy with inks too. I am lucky enough to design for several UK craft magazines.. I love to have the latest craft products especially stamps - I have hundreds of them!
