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!

Made with Love

* 2nd post of the day *

Rosie set the Saturday Challenge in the CMLI group on Craft Bubble, and it was the first stamp you bought or one you haven't used for a while. This is one I bought quite early on but never used as I thought it would be too difficult to colour, so I challenged myself to use it! I also needed to make a birthday card for my sister so kill 2 birds with one stone!

The charm is from a candy win and the ribbon was a gift from a friend.

Image was coloured with promarkers and background is derwent pencils and baby oil. Glitter from stash.

Papers from stash, die is nestabilities , doily from Joanna Sheen, punch is MS.

I am really pleased with the way it turned out, hope my sister likes it as much as I do!

I am entering this card into the following challenges;

Papertake Weekly - anything goes
I Love Promarkers - glitter and glitz
