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!

Fairy Happy Birthday


This weeks sketchie on Craft Bubble’s CMLI group was set by the lovely Kathy (aka Purple Princess). I have slightly deviated from the sketch (hope you don’t mind Kathy!) and also used a stamp that has never seen ink before….I know , I have already ordered another 2 LOTV stamps in the sale without using all the ones I have!!
I have used new nesties from Christmas and the papers are Pink Petticoat. Butterflies are a Martha Stewart punch. Image is coloured with promarkers and I have used icicle stickles.

IMG_3144bCorner punch is Martha Stewart.

Sentiment is by Pink Petticoat.


I will be entering this card into the following challenges

Make it Monday
The Paper Shelter - pearls (on butterflies) and swirls
Simon Says Challenge - anything goes
Creative Inspirations - anything goes
I Love Promarkers - purple and pink
Waste not Wednesdays - uninked stamps
Digi Doodle Shop's Best - anything goes
