Here's a little more info on Gay that she has shared with me:

Hello there! I was so excited when Kim invited me to do a guest designer spot for Stampotique for a month, what an honour! Having lusted after Stampotique stamps for years and entering the challenge a few times I have been so impressed by the talent of the design team every week, so I'm sure you can imagine how it felt! Yes fantastic!
I am married with 2 grown up sons and two beautiful grand daughters, live in Surrey in the UK but I was born in Egypt, sounds exotic but my father was in the R.A.F so it was just a lucky chance really and we were home before I was even 6months old! So I remember nothing.

I have crafted literally all my life but just for my family and myself until last year when I decided to take a chance that someone would like my work. Luckily I was offered a position at the Craft Barn on their design team. That has been such a lovely experience and I've tried lots of interesting products and expanded my knowledge. Having a blog, entering challenges and visiting wonderful crafty people is such a great way to share knowledge, inspiration and fun!

My style has changed dramatically over the years from fussy all over the page to the barest minimum and less is more style, which I love. I would be very sad if I had to choose a specific style it's so much fun playing. Now I stay up late (sorry mum!) and craft into the wee small hours! I really hope you enjoy my efforts.
