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!

Sketch me a Tree

was the challenge on the CMLI group on Craft Bubble, set by the lovely Karen. I knew what image I had in mind and that i would emboss it, but not really happy with the papers...ah well..it doesn't help that there is another card I should be making but am putting it off..excuses, excuses....

I will be entering this card into the following challenges;

Craft your Passion - christmas in july
Crafty Creations - christmas in july
ABC Christmas - image must be at least one year old
Creative Belli - christmas in july (old/forgotten embellishments - tree charm)
Craft us Crazy -christmas in july
Little red wagonm - heat embossing
Fussy and Fancy Friday - Christmas in July
Crafty Catz - christmas in July
Totally Gorjuss - Christmas in july

Well I LIKE it anyway. Perhaps the only reason you don't like it is because is has lots of trees on it ....... perhaps a plain red next time with the corner punch and you might like it better - just a thought.

Thanks for your questions regarding brayering as you inspired me to check out a few vids and have a go!

I can't see why you don't like the card and the papers. I like the busy feel of the card- it makes it in my mind. x
