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!

The lovely Louise has set the Christmas Recipe Challenge over on Craftbubble;

Christmas Selection Box
Choose at least 2 of the following, depending on how what size selection box you like to receive:
1) image or sentiment from the Christmas story
2) Kraft (seeing as Kraft food now own Cadbury, who make lots of  selection boxes!)
3) a knot
4) a brightly shining star
5) flourishes

What a delight to pick from! Although I was on the last minute I am pleased with how it has turned out as I used derwent pencils and baby oil for the backdrop.

I will be entering this card into the following challenges;

Make it Monday
Cupcake Cake Challenges - two's company
Stamps R Us - bling it on
Do You Stack Up - splash of blue
Totally Gorjuss - Christmas Traditions
