Hello everyone, my name is Yvonne van de Grijp and I love crafting and especially making cards. In 2008 I made my very first (simple 3D-)card. Now I’m really addicted to this lovely hobby of scrapping and stamping. I hope you’ll enjoy visiting my blog which is named after my lovely dog: cocker spaniel Phoebe. Hug, Yvonne
