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!

These are my first ever ATC's. I have organised a swop in an attempt to raise money for the Fibromyalgia Association, as I was diagnosed with this last month. The main problem with this condition is the pain, the only treatment is pain management. I have been in near constant pain since June but saw a specialist physio last week so will be seeing my Gp to try different painkillers.

Anyway back to the ATC's. Stamps used are all Stampin Up!, Friendly background stamp, butterfly from Strength and Hope set and tiny tag set.  SU jewellery tag punch, everything else from stash.

I will be entering these atc's into the following challenges;

Simply Stampin! - butterfly
Digidesign Challenge  - anything goes
Stamp Something - anything goes
Daring Cardmakers - butterfly
Delicious Doodles - fresh start/try something new
Cute Card Thursday - at the office (staples)
Paperplay Challenges - use 2 or more stamped images
Papertake Weekly - anything goes
Stamps R Us - friendship
Jules snippet makes - tiny tags
