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!

Drip drop drip.....

little april showers.. is the theme of today's sketchie in the CMLI group on craftbubble. It was set by the lovely Rosie, after having watched Bambi and having this tune in her head! There was a sketch to follow but I have moved some of the elements around. The little gems on the punch are meant to be droplets of water.




image - bugaboo
coloured with promarkers
nesties
button/gems/ribbon from stash
punch - martha stewart
design paper - doodlebug 'birthday boy ribbon stripe'
