Featured Designer: Janet Ribet

It's time to introduce our October Featured Designer!  Please welcome Janet Ribet into the spotlight this month!  She's been a faithful participant in the CASology challenges and her clean & simple design is beautiful!

Greetings from my little happy crafting space on the very small island of Mauritius in the Indian Ocean. It doesn’t take long to get there in Blogland … come over to Swanlady Impressions to get a sprinkle of my creative world and beautiful corner of the earth.
I’m a Zimbabwean Born, South African raised, Mauritian settled, enthusiast of all things paper, ink, stamps etc. I started stamping 22 years ago and added scrapping in 2001, but I also enjoy crochet, decoupage, sewing, baking, reading, Bible & bullet journaling, handwriting and watercoloring.  I love creating and want to do it all but there are just not enough hours in the day! Playing in card challenges, and following the many talented craft bloggers out there has helped me discover and develop my place & style. I love using colour when I create -  especially blues, greens and rainbows.  I find that I am gravitating towards CAS more and more but I as I can’t resist playing with techniques it can be a challenge.
As there weren’t any stamping or scrapbooking shops in Mauritius back in the day, I started bringing back supplies each time I went to South Africa. My hobby grew in fits and starts from my dining room table, to having too many boxes of supplies, to carving out my own craft space and now I have a tiny shop and small studio at home. I give a stamping class every Thursday and do scrapping classes and projects as the mojo flows.
This card fits in with this week’s challenge SUPPORT, and October’s Breast Cancer Awareness Month.  I especially dedicate it to my friends who have faced breast cancer and fought the good fight (Fi, Christine & Margaret).

Thank you Melissa and the design team for having me over the next 4 weeks.

Head on over to Janet's blog and give her some blog love!
