My name is Emma and i live in the beautiful Cornish countryside and not far from the sea.  I got into papercrafting after making cards from my own paintings, now papercrafting is my first pleasure, but i do still paint now and then.  I have a love of colour and take inspiration from nature, flowers, wildlife, my surroundings.  I love to try out new techniques and try and put my own stamp on most of my creations.  I do make alot of cards for family, friends and charity, but like to mix it up with mixed media canvases and home decor pieces, there is something special about making a hand made gift for loved ones.  I am lucky to have a fabulous family and spend as much time with them as i can, you can often find me helping out an injured animal of some kind, animals bring such pleasure to our lives.  I love to inspire others to try and push their boundaries a little bit in their crafting, so I hope you enjoy viewing my little projects. Emma

  2. Hi! I am your new Paper Playful Volunteer, and want to properly list your challenge in the weekly challenge blog post. Originally, we listed that people can only combine 6 challenges and that they must follow the blog to be eligible. But your rules do not state that. Have you changed the number of challenges players can enter now? Thanks so much for your response. Hugs, Donna
