Welcome to my blog!

From x stitch I moved into card making - now I am playing around with mixed media! I am taking part in different workshops and with help from crafty pals, learning about different mediums and techniques. Hope you feel inspired to create after a visit to my blog - Happy Crafting!

Bubbles and easels

This weeks challenge for the Craftmad and Loving it group an Craftbubble was to make an easel card (oh no!) and the twist was bubbles. I have never made an easel card before so this was a bit of a challenge, i also wanted to stay away form my usual mermaids. I'm quite pleased - hope you all like it x
