Designer Spotlight with Farmer Tanya

Hey Farm Friends!  It's Tanya here with the last Designer Spotlight for the current design team.  Because this is the last spotlight for me I thought I would talk a little bit about how I got started and the history of my card making career.

I began paper crafting in 2005 as a scrapbooker and then I ventured into stamping when a friend took me along to a stampers workshop.  I have to admit that it took me a while to really fall into the stamping world.  I think the main reason was because I wasn't very good at it!  Then I started looking around online and blog surfing and seeing all these gorgeous stamps being released and wished so much that I could use them, so I picked up my inkpads again and just kept at it, making cards and using my stamps.  I would enter alot of online card challenges, including TGF ones since I fell in love with TGF stamps the very second I laid eyes on them - I guess you could say it was love at first sight haha!  I still love them very much of course!  You will often hear me banging on about how they are THE BEST CUTE STAMP manufacturer around!  Initially I only ever used to water colour my stamps and then I discovered copic markers and that opened up a whole new world for me!  I have loved card making ever since and now I call myself both a scrapbooker AND a card maker :)

So there you have it.  There's a little bit about how I got started in card making.  I hope you learned something new about me ;)

I will leave you with this card which I created using the new Ballet Anya Digi.  She is just perfect for all those little girls who dream of being a ballerina!
