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!

Shabby chic..or just shabby??


This butterfly is from the SU! breast cancer set, stamped in Tim Holtz dusty concord and the swirls are stamped with milled lavender with a Debbie Moore 'swirl' set. I do love the way these inks raise slightly!

Papers are Pink Petticoat
Ribbon from stash
Pearls from stash
Edges are distressed with Tim Holtz ‘distresser’


This sketch was set by the lovely Lauren on craftbubble, in the CMLI group. There is a new sketch every Saturday so I am a teeny bit late!( The new one is out today). The theme of course is shabby chic , I'm not sure if I have done it justice! I do like the butterfly and the swirls though Smile The beads are actually purple but they look red/black in the picture.

I will be entering this card into the following challenges;

My Mums Craft Shop - swirls and pearls
