Steph is not only a crafter, she is also a comper, and we got to know each other through comping, where we first "met" in the newsgroup uk.rec.competitions - neither of us uses it any more but we are both members of the London Competitors Club. We'd known each other for a long time before we realised we were both crafters too. In fact comping and craft seem to go hand in hand. I think a lot of compers start to make their own postcards out of old greetings card and cereal packets, and then get a taste for creativity!
I'm always impressed with the cards Steph sends and often use them as inspiration for cards of my own, but this year she really excelled herself, making a card that is a beautiful gift too, and perfect for a comper. Her "Card" is a book, and on each page is a cellophane card bag containing a hand made postcard. The idea is for me to use these postcards for my competition entries - and what promoter could resist picking one of these beauties out from among a pile of plain white or boring advertising postcards?
