About Me




Hi my name is Carol (and some of you may know me as Silverpaws).....

I am 56 years old and have retired early from the utility industry as a technical analyst, I live in Nottingham with my partner and two black cats. I have one daughter who lives close by.

I have always like crafting of some kind knitting, crocheting, dressmaking since I was a small child, and now added to my crafting is beading with small beads to create decorations for the home.

I became addicted to paper crafting about 10 years ago when helping my step Mum to make some cards with the original sizzix die cuts... as time went by I started stamping and have a love of character images.   I run a crafting class each week in the local community centre and am always on the look out for a new face to colour.

I love to colour with copics and prisma color pencils, followed closely by pan pastels and distress inks, colouring became my favourite technique and I can spend two or three hours colouring one image ....
So one day was skipping about on Facebook when this lovely image appeared called christmas hat ... I just had to have it .. so off I went to the etsy store and purchased the image along with one or two others......


I printed two on the page and off I went to my Step Mum armed with my copic’s and we spent the whole afternoon colouring my first ever BESTIE was so excited took a photo with my phone and posted on Facebook before it was made into a card.... not long afterwards I received a message from Sherri asking if I would like to join the design team in the UK for Besties.... so here I am as DT Co-ordinator of the UK Besties team and really enjoying using the Bestie images to create my cards and projects.

Thats all for now
