Creative Blog Hop

I was asked by my Thursday night crafty buddy Susan if I'd join in with the Creative Bloggers Hop.It's an ongoing blog hop every Monday with different creative bloggers taking part.You then nominate 3 others to carry on the hop.

Now for the questions......

1.What am I working on?

I've got a couple of birthday cards to make for the next week,so have made a start on them.One is for me and the other is for a lovely lady who orders from me regularly.

2.How does my work differ from others in my genre?

I just make cards that I think will appeal to others.I know my style isn't everyone's cup of tea.I'm not great at CAS! I don't tend to follow trends...I'm a bit of a just do what makes me happy really.

3.Why do I write/create what I do?

It's my way of relaxing,unless I have 3475657925463 cards to make at one love to go out to my cabin and just sit and create whatever ideas come to mind for whatever project I'm working on.Unless of course Mr.Mojo has other ideas!

4.How does your writing/creative process work?

I decide on what image best suits the card I've to make,unless it's just me playing about with new stamps and not for a commission.If it's for a DT post it might have a certain theme.Once I've chosen the image I choose what papers I want to use,then colour the image to match/contrast them.I then put the card together depending on how I want it to look or by following a sketch if I'm really stuck.Then just embellish it until it looks how I want.(it doesn't always turn out like I had imagined!)

Now I'm supposed to nominate 3 fellow bloggers to carry on the hop next Monday,but I'm only adding two as I'm only recently back to blogging and not following many at the moment.
So here are my 2 choices.

I've known Erika for a while now and have been lucky enough to meet her on a few occasions.We had a colouring session at the Sugar Nellie shop in Elgin a few years ago and she made the most delicious flapjacks.I love her variety of cards and her pictures she posts as it's from one of my most favourite places. 

I've seen Pam's cards for years on Docrafts but only recently been following her blog.She makes the most beautiful cards and craft projects.
