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!

Sketchie Challenge

Hello to my new follower and Thanks to all those who regularly leave comments!

Some of you will know that I am part of a group on a craft forum (Craft Bubble) and we have a regular Dt and Gdt slots (mine is coming up!!!). This week's sketch and theme was set by the lovely Lauren (DT) who set the theme as 'take it as red'. So many different options to choose from! I have already started my oh's valentine card but I know he checks my blog out so that will have to be finished and then posted after V day. Even tho was we walked into Tesco last night he uttered...Oh Crap! as he saw all the stuff for V day. He honestly does not know the date of it! Ho hum..anyway onto this card. 

Image -  Forever Friends
Coloured with Promarkers
Glossy accents
Brad from local craft shop
Ribbon - American Crafts
Punch - Martha Stewart
Papers -  3 bugs in a rug and stash
Embossing folder - Cuttlebug spots and dots
Sentiment - bargain bin special
Faux stitching - Fineliner pen

I'm such a sucker for balloons on a card! Sorry about the quality of the pics, it isn't picking up much of the shading on the bear but maybe it's overshadowed by the red!

I will be entering this card into the following challenges;

Ready-Teddy-Go Challenge - Im in Stitches
Alphabet Challenge Blog - A for Animal Antics
Moving Along With the Times - cute critters
Papertake Weekly Challenge - anything goes
Pixie Cottage - Red
Craft Your Days Away - stitchy challenge

Hope you are all warm and snow free! Have a great weekend
