Top Talent Thursday

Welcome back to Our Creative Corner. and once again it is that time where I have the pleasure of presenting someone special,  and this week it is our winner of  the ‘Let’s get Sketchy’ Challenge, and our Top Talent this Thursday.

Heather Dennis:  Heather’s Coffee Break.

Her two cards she has created for us are just delightful, but first let us learn a little about her.

 1.) Where do you Live?
I live {near} Myrtle Beach, South Carolina but was born and raised
in a little town called Old Fort in North Carolina.

2.) Describe a real life experience that inspired you artistically.
This is easy. What HASN'T inspired me artistically?
God's love shines through in EVERYTHING I see, hear or do. The birds singing, walking through the tall green grass, watching the trees change with each season. Everything is so amazing and beautiful and special. How can you not be inspired every day? Just step outside and look around. :)

3.) Are you a day-time or night-time crafter?
I am a mom, wife, teacher, chef, housekeeper, taxi driver and referee during the day.I am a crazy, caffeinated, crafting ninja at night! HAHAHA!

4.) Are you a Spring, Summer, Winter or Fall person?
OOOH... I love a little bit of everything about all of the seasons.
I will go with Summer because the kids are out of school and we can just enjoy our time with each other.

5.) How long have you been crafting and what made you hop on the creative train?
I have been crafting for as long as I can remember. My mom is SUPER DE DUPER creative and SO TALENTED! She has taught me so much and has passed on her talents to me as well as has spent time teaching my children when they go over to visit her. I thought I had lost my creativity when I became a mom. I did not have time to paint or do any of the things I had done before. When I started homeschooling, I thought I was going to lose it. {my mind that is} I NEEDED some sort of creative release. I stumbled upon a card-making group at an online site called CafeMom and was quickly sucked in. I started card making in 2007 and haven't stopped.

6.) Picking only one colour of paint, which would you prefer on your carpet?On my carpet? I don't have any carpet ;) lol!!! If I had to choose ONE I would choose....{oh why is this one so hard to answer?} I can't choose. My daughter said hot pink, so hot pink it is!

"The intense colour palette that Heather has chosen for her two cards just sing and vibrate. they relate joy and happiness; Yellow.
There is energy and passion; Red, and the Black gives the cards power and sophistication.
The palette is used wonderfully to create a very effective and dramatic design, and you cannot help but enjoy them, they are very pleasing to the eye."
 Just take a look and drool.....

Thank you Heather for being our 'Thursday's Top Talent' and sharing such wonderful inspiration with us.


Happy Easter to you all.
