Di's BIO:  {I have been drawing since a child and studied graphics at College. I now work as a Medical photographer part time but my love was always drawing. I started cardmaking about 4yrs ago when I bought my daughter a cardmaking kit which we did together, but I’m afraid I got the bug! My daughter preferred scrapbooking. I then started looking online at other blogs and this then became my passion and I loved sharing my cards with like-minded people.  I love stamping and loved finding images, but sometimes I could not find what I wanted so I started to draw myself. This then has become my second addiction and I have never looked back, I love thinking of new images, and its just fabulous to see others take them and make them into beautiful works of art. Long may it continue! }

...AND...
A second prize for a second winner comes from our very generous Teamie and Challenge Host; Tom Bush, who is giving away this Yummy Candy
What fab Prizes!  Be sure to enter for your chance to win!
