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!

Love Letters..

This week over at Craftbubble on the CMLI group (link in sidebar) it was my turn to be GDT!! WooHoo! I was super organised (very unlike me) and had the card made and all details to Lauren just under 2 weeks before.
This was the sketch

and this was my card
it was my first time using Pink Petticoat papers and i was very pleased. The twist was 'Going Postal' and i know some people struggled but thank you to everyone who has taken part , and to the very talented dt who created some splendiferous cards!
