this is my way of relaxing  and being creative when time allows, I have made many crafting friends
and have been lucky to have met some of them too.I love all styles of cardmaking so dont think I have a particular style myself.

Annette using flowering tree
My name's Annette, although my friends call me Netty.  I'm 36 (or 28
with 8 years of experience as I prefer to believe) and live in Devon, UK
with my hubby, Paul, plus 2 cats and 2 chickens!  I've always been a
crafter; never happier than when I'm covered in glitter and sticky
stuff.  I started card-making in 2004 and quickly found that stamping
was my favourite technique.  However, since finding digi stamps about 6
months ago, I've become a real digi convert.   My favourite colouring
tools are my Promarkers, Twinkling H2O watercolour paints, my recently
re-discovered 20 year old watercolour pencils (they're still going
strong!!!) and my lovely shimmer chalks.  I love working with sketches,
flowers, ribbons, pearls and anything cute, pink and sparkly.
