Altenew Crafty Friends Blog Hop Day 2

/ 68 comments

Hello dear crafty friends!

I'm honored to take a part in Crafty Friends Blog Hop Day 2 and share my story and my card. Your previous stop was Galina Filippenko.
One day in back 2013 I woke up with the strong desire to create a card, it was Valentines day near I suppose. I went to You Tube and found Kristina's Werner videos and fell in love with the process, materials and of course result. Then I started to buy supplies, more and more) Real progress I had when started my blog and began to take a part in challenges. I finally felt that find the thing I lost entire life. Cardmaking - was and is treatment for my soul.
One of the most inspiring crafters for me is Yana Smakula, every time, literally "E V E R Y" time I see her new card a have question in my head "HOW?" - she has perfect taste and style, brilliant ideas and such a beautiful smile! Making this card I was inspired by her cards where she used alcohol markers to fill in the background. I made it partially to make a look of part-die cut.

 Another fun story is about my firs giveaway won. I was subscribed to a talented Liliya Rytsar (Ukrainian living in Canada) and really liked her works and posts. So I won one of her giveaways and was over the moon. Now I won even better prize - she became a good friend to me)
 I have more common stories of making friends while crafting and blogging, but lets left them for the next year ;)

I really hope that my cards are also inspire someone)
Works of  Lisa Spangler is def is very inspiring - your next stop is there!
