Please welcome our Guest blogger - Eileen Godwin

Hiya crafty friends,

Please welcome this months guest blogger. The very talented Eileen Godwin, who has made a wonderful project, using our theme for this month:

Vintage - Ribbons, lace and buttons

If you would like to enter, please visit our challenge blog. We look forward to seeing your projects.

So now over to you,  Eileen...

My name is Eileen and I was lucky enough to win the super Cards Galore Tag Challenge last month! Now I have been invited to be a Guest designer for this months challenge.
I’ve never been asked to do that before so I am very happy to accept and show you the vintage Tag I’ve made. All details are on my Blog

I’ve been asked to tell you a little bit about my self so no going to sleep now!

I retired in 2008 when I was 60, after a long career in Retail Pharmacy.

I was the Pharmacy Manager of a large store for Lloyds Pharmacy.

A rewarding but stressful job, dealing with a large staff, wonderful customers and a very demanding Head Office!
Crafting, especially making cards, became my main hobby in 2004 ... a truly brilliant ‘Stress Buster’.  I am married with three children, all with families of their own now.

My husband and I share our home with two small crossbreed dogs that are a total joy.
Sisters, Daisy and Holly. They are two years old and full of energy. They love to go on ‘adventures’ and that helps keep us fit!
I also love reading, bird / wildlife watching and I’m an ‘A’ class licence holder on Amateur Radio.
Finally, you still awake? I would love to win the lottery and build myself a Craft Room to beat all Craft Room’s because I need more space for my stash!
Thank you Cards Galore for inviting me here today. x
Happy crafting
Eileen xx
