One World One Heart 2011

Hi Welcome to my blog, I am Katrina Benton, I have 2 adorable little girls and a wonderful husband, oh and I love to make cards, I live near Slough in the United Kingdom. 

 I love to spend most of my time crafting, when I'm not doing school runs, or working. I have recently started using digital stamps and now find them quite addictive. I think I have tried my hand a a number of techniques from quick and easy 'shop brought' toppers, through to 'trying' to created 3D masterpieces!  I have so much 'stash' I don't know where to start!! As you can see i'm also obsessed with Pro-Markers, I use them to colour everything!

I have only been blogging since November 2010 and again I think i'm addicted to it! I made myself a few crafty resolutions, and so far i'm not too far behind with them all!  I am on the DT for Pear Tree Designs as well as Paper Cupcakes, and Heart Song Designs.  I feel that since I have been on these design teams that my creativity had really had a chance to shine. If you have time why not check out the rest of the design teams, you will find all their links in the side bar on the left! 

I love looking around other peoples blogs and seeing what you all have to share.  I hope you will like what you find here!

Well I have been lucky with what I have to offer.  I have spoken with Leah over at Heart Song Designs, before I show you what I have to offer I will show you this little bit about her and her shop;

Welcome to Heart Song Designs! You may recognize some images from Sweet 'n Sassy stamps as I use to be a designer/illustrator there, but have now branched out on my own. The inital desire to do so is to help fund the rest of the Ethiopian adoption my husband and I are in the middle of. Even though I plan to keep Heart Song Designs open after the adoption is complete, any purchase you make right now goes directly to bringing our baby boy home. Thank you for your support!
I feel its such a beautiful story and am honoured that she has chosen me to help her 'grow' her business, I have spoken with Leah and she has allowed me to give away a free digi to one lucky person. I sat there for ages thinking of what one to choose and so I have chosen one that I feel is just adorable!  

Within the next couple of days I will get a card posted with this image, its sat on the side waiting to be finished.  So if you fancy popping back it would be lovely to see you again! 

So as the rules state this is open to anyone world wide, all you need to do is post your details with my very good friend MR Frog below,  please ensure that there is a way of me contacting you.   The winner will be drawn by random and announced on the 17th February 2011 and the winner will receive their prize by e-mail.  

I will send a message before the digi just to make sure it docent get lost in cyber mail land! 

I cant wait to start looking at everyone else blogs! 

I hope you like what you have seen here and that I have inspired you in some way!

 I hope to see you again soon
