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!

Recent finish

I have been neglecting blogging and stitching lately so trying to spend a bit more time on the two. I started this little lovely last Christmas as i couldn't bear to be not doing crafty things whilst staying with relly's , and x stitch is fairly unobtrusive!

Don't look!

Crafty cardmakers are doing a different kind of challenge! First or latest and greatest..oh the shame! I have found an old pic of one of my first cards when i was starting out.. i was going for monochrome...hmmmm

The next card is greatest, it was for a challenge on CMLI on Craftbubble and got featured in a magazine. It's also the card i sent my sis for Xmas!
