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!

Thursday, 2 February 2012


My Mum asked me for a couple of male cards as she had to buy one and she said they were pants!! I rustled up some uber quick forever friends bear with a champagne glass. I have used this before for Father’s Day cards and think it’s perfect for men’s cards.I also kindly put a handful of other cards in the post for here..I better make sure I have enough birthday cards for the exchange!!


I used a square and scalloped nestie and embossed the backing nestie with the spots and dots folder. I used my new ribbon tags trio three, used an elzybells sentiment and used a chocolate ribbon from stash.

I will be entering this into the following challenges;

Divas by Design - anything goes
Simon Says Stamp  -animal antics
The Pixie Cottage - clean and simple
Do You Stack Up - anything goes (forgotten stamp)
Pollycraft Monday Challenge - favourite things (kraft and colour, teddy bears, nesties, ribbon and celebrating!)
Sweet Stampin - animals

Great cards for males. They are difficult to do somethings for sometimes.
