Tabbatha Sandoval - aislinnshannara
Eskilstuna, Sweden
Hello hello! My name is Tabbatha Sandoval and I am an American ex-pat who now abodes in Sweden. smile I moved to Sweden 6 years ago to be with my Swedish Boyfriend and totally fell in love with the country so now I'm here - foreveh!

My cardmaking journey began almost 10 years ago when I didn't have much money and wanted to create something special for a birthday. I was working a lot at the time trying to save to come to Sweden so I didn't put much time into cardmaking until I moved here 6 years ago and had absolutely nothing to do! I was waiting to take Swedish classes that I needed in order to get a job, so I had loads of free time to kill. I started making my old cards once again, but was not satisfied with how they looked. After careful research on the web I decided to buy my first pack of alcohol markers and a digital image from Tiddly Inks. Once I put marker to paper I was hooked!

I started to get really serious in 2011 about my cards and coloring and thus began my blogging adventure. Since that time I've put in a lot of effort to exploring new things with my cards and my coloring. I'm very happy with what I produce right now and make a point to just enjoy creating.

I can't begin to say how honored I am to have been asked to join the Dirty Dozen! There are some amazingly talented people here on Splitcoaststampers and the Dirty Dozen are truly the best of the best. While I wouldn't lump myself in that category, I do know that I love to create items and share with others and seeing what everyone creates. So I am really looking forward to the next 6 months!
