Carole of Brum - Guest Designer

It's time for another Guest Designer. 
This week we have Carole of Brum
  with us to share her beautiful gift box.
You can find her blog here.

Carole used the beautiful Peace image from the Angel Collection.
Isn't this just gorgeous!!

Now let's learn a little about Carole...
My name is Carole, and I’ve been making cards for about 5 years. I’m one of those crafters that took it up when ill-health forced a change of pace, but now I do it for it’s own sake. I absolutely love being part of the crafting community, both on forums large and small and also by blogging. I’ve met so many great people this way, many of whom have become good friends, and it’s also helped improve my skills as there is always something new to try and lots of friendly fellow-crafters willing to give pointers and advice. I’m also passionate about the therapeutic power of crafting, you hear so many stories from people who’ve taken it up during illness or how it helps them through the tough days…it’s a wonderful activity and I’m sure it keeps us sane sometimes. I started blogging in December of last year and I haven’t looked back because I’m liking my crafting more than ever now. The main techniques I enjoy are stamping, both rubber and digi, because this allows me to use colouring which it the thing I love most right now. I also like ageing and distressing, decoupage and embellishing. I’ve just got myself a box-maker, and this project as Guest Designer for Michelle Perkett Studios is the very first box I’ve made. I first found an MPS image (Lilly the Fairy of Enchantment) on someone else’s blog and immediately Googled it so I could get the image myself. I hope you like my project as Guest Designer. Happy crafting! Carole 

Thanks so much Carole for being
our guest designer this week.
There is still time to join the Anything But a Card Challenge
this week. Just make sure you use a MPS image.
