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!

Strength and Hope

 *2nd post of the day - please scroll down*

This is a new stamp set from Stampin Up! and every set that is bought they donate £1 or equivalent currency to breast cancer care. Far too many people I know have been directly or indirectly affected by breast cancer. My mum is 12 years clear this year, (we had a party at ten) so I try to support it as much as I can. I can't decide whether to give the card to my SU friend to promote the set or give it to someone..anyway, enough babble.. here are the pics, sorry one of them is blurry. I am entering it into the Less is More Challenge. The challenge is circles.







Special thanks to Kathy for the sequin waste!
