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!

Happy New Year

and welcome to my new followers! I have been mia over New Year as we were visiting family and I did not take my laptop.....oh the shame and angst!!!!

I will try and catch up on people's blogs but you may have posted several posts since I was last here...anyway!

This is the card I made for my lovely oh and obviously couldn't blog it before Christmas..I do love this stamp!!

I will be entering this card into the following challenges;

Make it Monday

I also got a lovely surprise from my sister who isn't crafty but saw this being made at a craft fair..(it's a coaster)

so thought I could do the same with this stamp...

Wow, love your faith in me!!!  I am going to another craftathon in February and three of the gang do art journalling so we will see if I pick up any tips there!

Hope 2012 is a fabulous year for you all!

Happy new year matey. Gorgeous card for OH Debs. Have to say you have one great sis. I love those stamps and were googling them over at Art from The Heart shop. They make fab journalling images as well as cards. I know you will make something amazing. Have fun. Are you going to join the doodling madness or stay sane? Hugs Cherry XXx
