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!

little flowers..or rather lets see your hand made flowers over at Digi Doodle Shop Challenges.
For my hand made punches I have used my Marianne ribbon flower die, you can use anything you want to make your flowers, papers, fabrics, ribbons just as long as you make them! Easy!

I have used a hot pink (woohoo!) card and pink petticoat papers for the flowers, mixing up doodles and stripes, with a paper mania flower brad.
Fuchsia promarker for the flowers on the sentiment and Tim Holtz spun sugar for the distressing
Sentiment from the Store, and is Blossom Word Art which you can pick up for FREE….love that word!


Another card I won’t want to give away!!!

Anyway, pop over and see what the rest of the team have created and show us your flowers!

I will be entering this card into the following challenges;

Creative Craft Challenges - pretty blossoms
Papertake Weekly  - hot, hot, hot
Shabby Tea Room - flower power
Simon Says Stamp - anything goes
Whoopsi Daisy Challenge - we love pink
