SDC230: Mardi Gras

Welcome back to the blog today and another fun challenge here at Stampotique. Can you believe it's February already??!! WOW!

Our Host for the challenge this week is Kathi and she is challenging us to "Mardi Gras"
Here is what Kathi says about this challenge:
"The colors of Mardi Gras are purple, green and gold... use them or the symbols of Mardi Gras - Fluer de lys, masks, costumes or music!! Let the good times roll"

We are also doing something new at Stampotique, we have several wonderful designers on our design team and we want to feature them so that you can get to know them better.  We are calling this our "Spotlight" designer. 
For the month of February our Spotlight designer is Carol Fox, she will be participating in each challenge and also telling us something new about herself each time. 

My Name is Carol Fox and I have been part of the Stampotique Design team since 2012. I live in the UK on the East Coast in a little Seaside Town. One of my earliest most vivid memories is saying to my mum that one day that I would like to live by the seaside, (I grew up in London) so I feel blessed and lucky to live where I do and in the summer with the windows open it is lovely to wake and hear the sea. 

I have crafted in one form or another since I was tiny but I started out on my paper crafting journey 10 years ago, I soon discovered the delights of rubber stamping and then of course Stampotique, I can still remember the first ever Stampotique Stamp I got, she was the lovely Perl who I still really enjoy using . 

I craft in varied styles it really depends on the mood I am in at the time, but so long as I can get a stamp on it I am happy, ohh and paint, I love paint. 

I contribute to a couple of UK Magazines and I teach Art Journaling to a private craft group once a month. My blog can be found Here
