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!

Celebrate for Father’s Day

Although I kept seeing the challenge blogs with themes of Fathers Day I completely forgot until my oh pointed out our cards needed to be posted in the next few day…..Oooops!
I had an idea a while ago for one of my stamps and then got some more inspiration from my craft bubble buddy Kathy after seeing her use memento rich cocoa.

I had some cream deckle edged cards that had been languishing in my drawer for a looong time and thought it would be perfect for using with the rich cocoa. I hadn’t meant to cut and layer my little teddy, I originally stamped straight onto the card..but being me I had a smudge mark!

I used a papermania folder for the background layer then used a Stampin Up! sentiment and I’m actually really pleased with how it turned out! Looks much better than just stamping on the card! I hope my Stepdad likes it as much as I do!

I will be entering this card into the following challenges;
