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!

Well I am not convinced Summer is here (as the rain hits the window) but a lot of the Challenge blogs live in hope! I have had this CC Designs Bikini stamp since last year and it's another one I have never used...I need to make an effort to use the ones that have never seen ink...unfortunately the list is growing as I keep buying new ones!
I also need to to use embellishments that are sat in the drawer, like these little blue pearls!
Coloured with Promarkers
Papers are pink petticoat
embellishments from stash

I will be entering this card into the following challenges;

Hooked on Craft - anything goes
KB Challenges - anything goes
Top Tip Tuesday - open challenge
For Fun Challenges - summer fun
Aud Sentiments - summertime
Addicted to Stamps - summertime
Anything Goes - here comes summer
Crafters Companion Monthly Challenge - here comes summer

I sometimes feel like I spend more time on stash acquisition than crafting too!!! But isn't it great to have new "stuff"?

Your card is delightful and I love your fresh colour scheme too
