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!

Christmas Presents

was the theme set by the lovely Karen over on the CMLI group on Craft Bubble. I know...another Crimble Card but at this rate I won't need to make any by December!

It gave me the chance to use this yummy new MS punch which was a Crimble Present. I wanted to use the stars out of the punch but they would have got lost in the backing paper!

Sparkly gems from stash.

I also used new nestie dies and a new image from Stampin Up! which I got last November but has only just seen ink! He is coloured with Spica glitter pens and promarkers.  Waterfall stickles around the edges (need more practice with them!) Glamour dust on hat and on ground.

Paper and ribbon from stash, sentiment by Craftwork Cards.

I will be entering this card into the following challenges;

Make it Monday - linky party
Sparkles Forum - new crafty goodies
Dream Valley Challenges - anything goes
Sentimental Sundays - ribbon and sentiment
Secret Crafter Saturday - anything goes with blue
Sweet Stampin - all that glitter
Sketch Saturday - yummy sketch

Just a note to sat despite all the problems people had over the weekend, I had no problems at all and use firefox as my browser.

Hope your Monday is going better than mine, pulled my sciatic nerve exercising and now in pain and need help getting dressed!!! Thank goodness for lovely oh's!

Gorgeous card, love the colours! I'm like you, no problems with my blogger etc, sadly.....

Unfortunately some of the Sweet Stampin' DT girls have been unable to leave comments on your blog this week. The rest of the team have rallied round to try & make sure that everyone gets comments but it would be a tremendous help if you would consider the fix. Apparently this is due to blogger issues with an embedded comments box & the way to cure it it is to have a pop up box instead. If you need instructions on how to do this, please see here


where Alison has provided a quick walk though, it's a simple process!

Thank you so much & we appreciate you playing along with Sweet Stampin' xx
