I live in Oxfordshire, England. I began making cards and sharing them on my blog in 2015, and I quickly became hooked! My card style is varied and I adore everything from florals to cute critters to graphic designs. I get so much inspiration from others and I hope the cards I share will inspire you too.IG: @lollipolly
