cards and other happy thoughts

Hello there!

My name is Lorraine and I’ve been stamping for several years now. I began making cards for friends and family and then ventured to a craft market. I am addicted to card-making now and can’t imagine life without this wonderful hobby. I would be very happy staying home all day, playing with paper, stamps and reading blogs (1000’s of ‘em).  The only thing which makes me happier is my family : husband, 3 married children and their spouses and my 6 cutie-pie grandies (Thanks to them for putting up with my card mania).

I started this blog in August 2010 and I am excited to see what happens with it.

I am a past design team member at my local Scrapbooking store “The Imagination Factory” (see link under blogs) and the lovely UK store “Buddly Crafts” (see link on side bar).  How lucky was I!  You might still see some of my cards in their design team gallery.

My Location  :   Ballarat  :  Australia

    Hi Lorraine. Greetings from one Victorian to another. Thank you for leaving such a nice comment on my blog I have just checked out your site, and it is fantastic. You have so much detail in your cards. Keep up the great work, and you never know, Ballarat is only an hour away, I might see you at a craft market one day.

    Thanks again
