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!

Challenge 70 – it’s a sketch!

This week’s challenge at Digi Doodle Shop Challenge is a sketch. This means you can use any image you like BUT if you use one of Digi Doodle’s your entry will count twice – double your chances!!

On this card, I have a mix of embossing, distressing, digi, rubber stamps, nesties, brads and punches..wow it wasn’t intentional!!


I had some lovely shiny paper which I embossed.
Flower punch/brads/ribbon/gems from stash.
Coloured with promarkers.
Distressed with TH distress inks.
Sentiment from Pink Petticoat.
Sentiment punch from SU!
Image from the Shop – Doodle Flower Set 2.


Hmm in real life all the brads are yellow and the same colour!!! These photo’s don’t do it justice! hmmph!

Anyway Happy Thursday, Happy Everything! Don’t forget to check out the Challenge Blog and see what the rest of the teamies have come up with!

I am entering this card into the following challenges;

Sarah Hurley - punch it
Cute Card Thursday - no designer paper
Paper Shelter - flowers,flowers, flowers
For Fun Challenge  - anything goes 
Crafts and Me - anything goes

Such a pretty card from a gr8 sketch Debs. I don't know anyone who's entirely happy with 100% of their photographs!

Moleskin journals "seem" to be designed specifically for use as art journals with paper suitable for use with acrylic paints - btw

Happy Thursday

Super card from a gr8 sketch. I don't know of anyone who's 100% happy with 100% of their photographs either.

btw - moleskin journals appear to be designed with art journaling in mind and consist of paper suitable for use with acrylics

Happy Thursday
