Talking Newbie

My name is Marianne. I am from Québec Canada. I'm a wife and a mom to a very active and creative young men. My first language is French so bare with me if I make English mistakes ��

I am an very old not very active member, that recreated a new account for logistics reasons (email hacked). So it is like I am recreating myself and loving it !! I want to get back to cardmaking because of it's creative outlet. I don't know if I am alone feeling this way but I get intimidated by the beautiful creations and sometimes it's stop me from creating. I need to get back to having fun and this is why I am "back" !!

I love watercoloring and drawing with my pencils. I love fun stamps ! I love simple card and trying new techniques like drawing on Kraft paper.

I am also an avid reader.

If you know where I can donate cards in Canada give me a shout because that would give me the boost to create more ��

I am excited to start doing the creative challenges and commenting on the beautiful and creative cards of this amazing community !

Welcome back, again, Marianne! Glad you are getting back in touch with your creative side.

And don't worry about language mistakes - you communicate very well.

I try hard to use the beautiful work of others for inspiration, and not comparison. We are not in competition here, just trying to express ourselves and have some fun with this great hobby.

Hello from Wisconsin! I enjoy looking at the lovely creations people make and then trying to use those techniques in making my own cards. There are so many ways to create your own style. If you're looking for places to donate your cards, somewhere on the message board is a thread for that. There are quite a few ladies from Canada who might have places that they know of.

Hi Marianne and welcome from New Zealand! I am glad you are back and having fun. Having fun should be the main objective in any creativity, so don't feel intimidated by cards you see.

Welcome, Marianne!

I love watercolor too - with paint, Gelatos, Distress Inks - and have just enrolled in an on-line watercolor for cards class on Craftsy. It's on sale for half price. Maybe you (or others) will join me.

Meet Deepti Malik, Paper Crafts Instructor on Craftsy!

And I love your Matisse quotation. Thank you. : )

Thanks for the heads-up, Beth! I just signed up for the class...

WELCOME, Marianne! Or, more accurately - welcome back! Your English is fine, so no worries there! I CANNOT use my throat and mouth properly to form French words correctly - completely hopeless, I'm afraid...

It's fun to see new/old members getting involved. I agree with others - no competition, just inspiration and encouragement! Have fun!

Oh, Marianne, is wonderful that you are back, and your English is absolutely fine. And my French from way back is nearly useless, so you are far ahead of me by lightyears. Don't feel badly at all about your English. You're doing great, and I LOVE your coloring. Keep it up! Hugs!
