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!

Paddy the Polar Bear

Isn't he a cutie! He is another delightful die cut that came with my craftworks cards goody bag. I have used promarkers (ice grey 1- 3) to colour him.

I used a nestie to cut out the snowflakes from kraft card. I had stamped onto the card and the ink was too pale so it went into the  'recycle' box.

The card candy is plain cardboard so you can colour it any way you want. I covered mine with antique linen distress ink.

Punch is MS, sentiment is craftwork cards and papers are My Mind's Eye 'Wild Asparagus'. Glamour dust has been added to the stars.

I will be entering this card into the following challenges;

Divas by Design - Merry Christmas
My Mum's Craft Shop - Cute and Funky Christmas
