Hi, my name is Amy.  I am a stay at home mother to three amazing children.  My daughter is 17 and my two boys are 16 and 12, they keep me full of life and very busy at times. We live in Georgetown, Texas which is right outside of Austin, TX.  After growing up in a military family it is nice to stay in one place for a while.  I love to travel and of course craft.  I started scrapbooking 16 years ago and have been making cards for 6, I love both but right now card making is my favorite.  My style is more CAS then anything but I love trying new techniques and of course learning all styles. I'm very excited to be joining the DT for Sparkles Monthly Challenges.

Jacky


 I'm Jacky but also known as Paddington Fan. I live on the Hampshire / Surrey border with my long suffering husband and 16 year old son. Also at home are 2 mad guinea pigs, 2 lop eared rabbits and a few fish. I have been crafting in one way or another ever since I was a child. As kids, my sister and I spent many happy hours cutting pictures out of catalogues and magazines and sticking them into note books - perhaps that is where my addiction with paper started! I enjoy cross stitch and scrapbooking but really card making has become my main hobby in the last 8 years. I love colouring, especially cute animal images, pretty papers and of course stash shopping! I am delighted to be joining the team at Sparkles Monthly!!
