Week 96 ~ Perfect Pair

Guest Designer

Get to know Lilia....

I always loved crafting.  Art was always a big part of my life. During my childhood years I did a lot of different crafts, such as floral arrangements, painting, cross-stitching, card making and even some food carving. But as the time went by I departed from most of it retaining only cross-stitching as my main and favourite hobby. 
I fell in love with card making long time ago, although became more serious about it only around Christmas time last year. I started with embroidery on paper, and then moved to simple cards with embellishments. After trying stamp colouring I fell in love with it and now I like to use coloured stamps on almost every card.  
Thanks to my husband’s support (which means watching our 8 and 1-year old sons) I have a few evenings every week that I can devote to my favourite crafts. While he is watching boys I enjoy the time of creativity. It is my stress relief... I don't have one particular style, as I like to experiment and when crafting often follow my mood rather than some style. I like simple cards, I like clean cards, I like vintage cards, but most of all I like beautiful cards, no matter in what style they're made. I love the process and enjoy results even more! 

Please stop by Lilia's blog and leave her some love
