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!

Show us yer metal!

was the lovely Clare's twist to her sketch over in the CMLI group on craft bubble! I have to hold my hands up I didn't put everything in the sketch, but in my defense, I didn't want to cover the lovely lamp embossing folder that I borrowed off a fellow crafter at the craftathon (thanks Wynneth!).

Metal pieces are the coins and the centre of the flowers, hope you like it! I do love Anya but hardly ever seem to use her on my cards..ah well, must try harder!

I will be entering this card into the following challenges;

Incy Wincy Designs - bright and bold
Top Tip Tuesday - open challenge
Cooking it up with Katie - flowers, lady, pink
Simon Says Stamp - embossing
I Love Promarkers - anything goes

Fantastic card Debs - wouldn't blame you for not wanting to cover up the embossing, it's fabulous. :)

LOVE that Anya (she's in my collection too but I don't her often enough either!) and your borrowed embossing folder - makes for a great card from you.

Happy Easter

Gorgeous card, love your little Asian Anya and stunning colour scheme. I must admit I have a habit of embossing or using beautiful paper then covering it all up - so well done you for resisting it!!

So glad you could join us at the Simon Says Stamp challenge
