"Hello. I'm Nicola (aka Paper Profusion) and I'm truly delighted to feature again as a guest designer at Frilly & Funkie - one of my very favourite blogs for top notch inspiration and education.
I live in Dublin, Ireland. I’ve loved handicrafts for as long as I can remember, probably inspired by my Mum who excelled at every single crafting technique out there. From very young I was an avid knitter and always enjoyed learning crafts especially those involving paper. I’m now medically retired however during my ‘career / good health years’ my main creative hobby was photography - especially travel/wildlife related. During a time of serious illness, I became hooked on paper crafting as it gave me an outlet to a home based hobby that I could dabble in, at my own pace. I’m particularly drawn to the vintage / shabby chic genres usually adding lots of embellishments and ribbon.
I'm so pleased that Cec's Challenge theme is 'Sing, Sing, Sing'. Coming straight after Christmas it can be hard to get crafting again but this theme made it easy. My card features a bird singing it's heart out with plenty of musical allusions in the form of pattern, stamping and embellishments. You can find out more over at my blog. In the meantime, huge thanks to all the über talented team at Frilly & Funkie for inviting me to guest design today."
