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!

Finally a post and a card!

Well what with Christmas, work, illness and the pc dying i have been a very bad blogger! Luckily the CMLI team on craftbubble have stepped in and Karen has come up with a sketch and theme of pearls! I had a go at using the blender pen following the tutorial on the LOTV blog and am quite pleased with the result...i just realised..this is my first blog post on my new laptop too! what a lot of firsts eh? I also treated myself to some lovely card candy which i have been eyeing enviously on other people's cards! Anyway, hope you like the card :)

Kaboodledoodles - anything goes
Craft your passion - anything goes
Bee Crafty - whats new? (technique and card candy)
