Here is a little bit about Di.
I have been drawing since a child and studied graphics at College many years 
ago, I now work as a Medical photographer part time but my love was always 
drawing. I started cardmaking about 4yrs ago when I bought my daughter a 
cardmaking kit which we did together, but I’m afraid I got the bug! My 
daughter preferred scrapbooking. I then started looking online at other blogs 
and this then became my passion and I loved sharing my cards with likeminded 
people. 
I love stamping and loved finding images, but sometimes I could not find what I 
wanted so I started to draw myself. 
This then has become my second addiction and I have never looked back, I love 
thinking of new images, and its just fabulous to see others take them and make 
them into beautiful works of art. Long may it continue!

All Dressed Up
Hi I am Wendy Burns I live in Nottingham UK with my husband and two children who have been the inspiration behind the characters,  in particular my daughter who has kept me up-to-date with blogging and trends.  I work predominantly within the textile children’s wear market, fashion and interiors.
I trained as a textile designer and although my work is digital based, I love to retain that hand drawn /sewn feel which I hope comes across in my artwork.
Digital stamps is a new challenge for me and the opportunity to work with the All Dressed Up Team and has been very exciting, in particular the creative way my characters have been given individual personalities by the designers .
All Dressed Up is a newly launched blog with an enthusiastic team who are passionate about stamping.  The coordinators Marilyn and Tracy along with an amazing design team are also known as The Dressy Girls.
We have a friendly Facebook page, regular blog posts, tutorials, challenges and freebies . The stamps can be purchased from the Etsy shop which is updated on a monthly basis.
We really are friendly bunch and would love to see your creations so please feel free to contact us and visit the All Dressed Up Challenge Blog

This week's challenge winner will receive two free digis of their choice from Wendy’s Etsy shop
