Cazza's Cards

My name is Carol Mitchell and I have been crafting for over 30 years. I started with cross stitch and knitting and moved on to card making about 15 years ago. I have been doing craft fairs, garden shows and dog shows with my cards all over Essex and just over the border into Suffolk for many years.

I enjoy making cards, and each one is different as I do not do two exactly the same. I enjoy the feedback from customers who contact me afterwards for bespoke order.
