Please welcome Viv



Hi!  I took up card making over 10 years ago and combine my love of paper crafting with a passion for tracing my ancestry, playing lawn bowls and following my beloved Liverpool Football Club!
I have also ventured into the world of Artist Trading Cards, Mixed Media and Altered Art, and have no problem getting messy with inks and glue.
 I  am lucky enough to have a very supportive husband and have made many wonderful friends through crafting.
There are so many talented people out here in blogland providing inspiration and I feel part of one huge family!
I am delighted to have been asked to be Guest Designer here at TIOT.


Viv has created this wonderful Exploding box for us this fortnight. Isn't it just fab!
