Default Hello from Brisbane

Hello everyone,
It is so exciting to be part of such a wonderful community. I joined SCS couple of years ago but wasn't very active on it but just yesterday for the first time, uploaded a few of my cards and am just thinking now why I didn't do it before !! such wonderful , kind words and positive feedback that it has made me even more enthusiastic about this beautiful craft.
Now something about me, I am Deepika from Brisbane, Australia, mum of 2 gorgeous boys . I was introduced to card making by one of my friend and have just fell in love with it instantly. And boy! its a big world of stamping, dies, strings, embossing and so many new and exciting techniques I had no clue of! I never knew you could get so excited to see a new pattern of paper, dies or stamps ;P It has given me something for myself though so I can be a wife, mum and me too
I do this as a hobby and as am self taught, my cards are fairly simple and I also don't use very expensive materials for them but they do take a lot of time and thought
I am hoping to participate in the challenges here while learning new techniques and ideas and ofcourse, also to know more beautiful people making gorgeous creations.

Have a wonderful day!
Cheers,
Deepika

Hi, Deepika, and it's lovely to read your "bio" and learn more about you and how you got into stamping. We are thrilled you are here, and I know you will love it. Just ask any questions, and I hope we'll be seeing you more. One of my dear friends, Susie, is from Australia, so I'm sure you'll be hearing from her...if you haven't already!

Have a wonderful day...hugs, Cheryl

Hi Deepika, welcome! We have friends near Brisbane (in fact one of them is currently in Austria with my husband, listening to Schubert concerts!).

Time, thought and love are the most important ingredients in card making, I think and it sounds as though your creations have those in abundance. It's good that it gives you something that feels like a way to express "you" as well. Do shout if we can help with anything as you find your way around SCS
