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!

Caught the bug

*2nd post of the day - please scroll down*

or rather Kathy made me do it! She has nailed the less is more challenge and makes some wonderful creations! I bought some Sheena Douglas stamps which arrived yesterday as I wanted some swirly stamps. I have been seeing Kathy's and other people's cards for the 'off the page' challenge and saw some gorgeous cards. The stamps seemed perfect so I gave it a go. I have actually done about ten  more on 4x4 cards which I plan to give as part of a mothers day gift so mum has some notelets.

The cas cards make a refreshing change from those you would never get in an envelope or look like every single embellishment owned has been stuck on! I am quite please with these and love Mandi's (dt) card with the dress coming off the dge, I have a couple of dress stamps so may give that a go too!

I am entering this card into the Less is More Challenge.

Not just me that's got it nailed then! Thanks so much for giving me the credit! You've done a sterling job on these and I'm sure your mum will love the notelets

Happy Thursday

How weird we've been doing the same thing today, Debs! Just love this set, the colours with those stamps are delicious and very useful. I'm sure they will be gratefully received and used by your mum. We are obviously sharing the same muse at the mo - lol. Continue having a good week off and hope you are feeling ok. Hugs Cherry XxX
