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!

Time for another mini rr, this little angel is so sweet and the colours are so fresh i couldn't resist!

I did a blog hop over at la la land in the middle of jan and if you commented on each persons blog you could win a new stamp. The first person out of the hat didn't respond so it was pulled again and it was me!! Visit Cheryls blog to see which stamp i won :)

Lgs 16th Jan and Just Magnolia Challenge

This card was originally created for the lets get stamping 16th jan challenge on craftbubble. I had finished it and my lovely bf (who pretends he doesn't like crafting) suggested I put a sentiment on as a part of it looked bare. I suddenly remembered the just magnolia challenge had a thank you theme and Voila! One card for two challenges!

Mini round robin

Well all this card making has left me neglecting my cross stitch. I only signed up to a mini round robin as I didn't get anything completed for myself last year, then along came pm's and nesties....
I have some ufo's that I want to get finished and a longer list of things I want to start! Anyway I have been trying to keep up with my rr's and this is what I have completed so far..


Mega Candy to be won

over at Floral Fantasies on the 1st of Feb. Apparently it is a piece of crafting equipment that we are all hankering for.... ooh sounds fab! Pop on over for a look see and good luck x

Sketchie Challenge 9th Jan

This weeks sketch and theme was organised by Karen. It's a lovely sketch with the twist of ice colours. I have a new anya stamp (the only anya stamp i have! :( ) that I was dying to use and this gave me the perfect opportunity! I think I may be keeping this card as I don't want to give it away!

Spoonful of Sugar Challenge #85

This week's theme on spoonful of sugar is hearts, so I decided to use one of my magnolia stamps. This is from the winter collection but has a large amount of hearts and roses, everyone has commented it looks like a valentines collection. I just love the rich red colours and ribbons!

Passion for promarkers #33

The theme on Passion for promarkers for this week is Love...awwww. The sketch was very simple, a lot of people added more embellishments but I was happy with a simple card and I LOVE the colours.....see what I did there!!!

Sketch Saturday # 84

This is my entry on this week's sketch saturday challenge, I wanted to go for pastel colours instead of all the red and green for christmas but I don't think the camera shows the colours too well! You will all recognise the stamp :)
