Yes...Sparkle is her real name. She has been crafting since she was a child, but seriously started crafting when she was 16. Sparkle started as a scrapbooker, though over the years she has turned into a cardmaker. Brent (Sparkle's husband) and Sparkle opened SparkleCreations Rubber Stamps in July 2010, and they are selling cute and whimsical rubber stamps of little boy and girl images. Aki, their wonderful artist, has done a great job at making their characters come alive and have their own personalities.
The randomly picked winner this week will receive 2 stamps from Sparkle Creations: Surfing Oliver & Swimming Lucy!
Lianne: Lianne's Platinums
What a great surprise to be guest designer for Card Patterns this week! I am Lianne, 39 years old and living in the Netherlands . Happily married to Ron and together we have three boys. Sietse- 14, Jelle- 12, and Tijmen- 9. I’m working at home as a nanny ( in Holland we call that guest-parent ) of three little kids.
When I was a little girl I already loved playing with paper and I still do. For twenty years I make cards and about eight years ago I discovered scrapping. And wow, I love it. When I make a card I try to make it personal, for example to put the Name of the baby on the card. This card is for my mothers birthday.
And here is Lianne's beautiful take on the sketch:
