Hi - I'm Val of Flissy's Crafty Haven. I have been married for 38 years, with two grown up sons, and three cats - an old lady Persian who is now 18 years old, and two naughty boy Chincillas. I live in a small village in Hampshire, southern UK.

I have a fairly eclectic style, working with stamping, digital and multimedia and altered art, although crafting in one form or another has been part of my life since childhood.  When I found cardmaking, and particularly rubber stamping, etc, around 10 or so years ago, it was almost life changing for me - I became addicted! This is well evidenced by the amount of stash I have, and very little space left in my craft room. I love colour and working with it and the results were so immediate.

I would by no means consider myself an artist, but I love the fact that I can sit and create.  It is 'me' time that allows me to relax and just think about what the piece I am working on it going to look like.    For instance, with the card I have made here, using an Art Journey stamp of some dancers - I created several different coloured backgrounds, and then decided which would suit my stamp best.

I was really honoured to be chosen as a GDT, and have enjoyed my time with this challenge team immensely - they are so talented.

Thank you so much for having me.

We are also joined by Lessa aka The Navy's Wife 

Lets see what the rest of the gang have created for our challenge.
