Creative Blog Hop

Good Morning or Evening depending on where you are, and thanks for joining me on my day in Creative Blog hop! My friend Jan McQueen ask me if I would like to be part of of the never ending Blog Hop, Creative Blog Hop! Of Course I said yes... Jan lives in Melbourne Australia and I am in North Plains Oregon in the United States, we may be far apart, but enjoy each others work and crafty-awesomeness!
The Creative Blog Hop asks us to answer 4 questions about ourselves and is a way of introducing you to somebody else and learning a bit more about each of us.
What am I working on now?
Well I'm working all types of things, from cards, to home decor to Holiday crafts! I recently received the newest My Paper Pumpkin from Stampin' Up! and I am in love with the awesomeness that is MPP!!!

How does my work differ from others in my genre?
I would say that I am a one off type of designer, while I love doing swaps and mass card making I prefer to make a card unlike the masses. I love bold deep colors, and put me into everyone of my cards, and projects. The other thing most of my friends and followers notice I'm not a huge fan of CAS(E)in' a card.... but I have done it a few times, but the cards and designers were too fab, not too! Making a person smile is what my card making is all about... and I love it!

Why do I create what I do?
It gives me joy to give.... The most common card I make is the THANK YOU card... Birthdays come and go, so do holidays... but you can never say thank you enough in your lifetime. I've always done some type of artistry, writing, drawing, but designing cards is the only thing that seems to stick, I can write how I feel into each of them, and I love that!
Thank You CBH - Copy
How does my creative process work?
I start with color... once I have the colors I know what I can use, and what direction my project or design is going to go. I'm not a fan of pastels, like pink or pale yellow, but some days thats where I start.... Color is easy, you can make sense of the tone of the card, black, white, and grays give a elegant feel, whereas reds and oranges are warmth and cozy. The color is the key to my designing and I wouldn't have it any other way! Here is one of my recent favorite cards, I love the clean lines, and vibrant colors. FMS151
 
Well now... on to the next hopper...
and the saga continues, thanks to my follow crafter and friend Shannon Jaramillo, who will be next on the hop, on October 6th 2014! She is crafting mistress, and a wonder with the Stamp-A-Ma -Jig! Shannon and I are also design members at www.canyoucaseit.com, a weekly card challenge site... We have so much fun each week seeing all the creative designs folks share with us! She is one of the most talented SU Demo designers, its been my pleasure of working with her!
