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!

Snippets, Charity Cards and Less is More

After making my Dt card I had some bits and pieces left over and decided to make another card for the Less is More Challenge. After making it I wished I had moved the bottom piece higher and I still had more scraps left, so here is what I did….

I batch made some c6 cards with the bottom piece higher and a punched heart in the corner. These will go into the cancer research bags to raise money. They sell these in the local shops for £1 each, what a great way to raise money for charity!


I will be entering this card into the following challenges;
Less is More - button or ribbon

Super cards for a most worthy cause too.
I think I may have tried the button on the text DP where it overlaps the other paper... but it's just great anyway.
Thanks so much

Super cards, so worthwhile
Id say the button would have been better placed on the panel of paper to give it more purpose, no offence, just my opinion
Lovely cards

Thanks so much
