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!

Stitched Up!

Well not quite…Stitching is the new challenge theme over at Digi Doodles Shop Challenges this week! IMG_2217b 
I got a small sewing machine last year as I loved the way it looked on other people’s cards, hmmm i need to practice more! I had all good intentions of having a go at the zigzag stitching then realised I hadn’t left enough border.. ah well you live and learn.

This is stunning. I love the way stitching looks on cards, unfortunately, I am not too good with doing it. Your stitching is amazing and really adds so much to your card. Thanks so much for sharing it with our challenges at WHOOPSI DAISY and KABOODLE DOODLES this week:)
