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!

Show us your Shapes

This weeks's challenge over at Digi Doodle Shop Challenges is to use a shaped card. Step away from those square and rectangle cards and try something new!

I have decided to go for a round card and thought the Vintage bike would look perfect on this, you can get this little beauty from the shop.

I love the flowers surrounding it, and decided to add some swirls as well!

Don't forget to pop over and see what the rest of the teamies have created!

I will be entering this card into the following challenges;

KB Cute Monday - anything goes using a digi
Stamp Something - digi day

Cool card, lovely shape, image and flourishes. You asked about ATC blanks - I get mine here


They're not ever so thick but I usually have other papers, etc to add - and they ARE pretty cheap!
