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!

Twinkling Penny Black

Louise has set a just for fun challenge in the CMLI group which is Christmas in July. I used my new PB stamp (Twinkling) and stamped in brilliance pearlescent poppy.

I coloured the circles in with a glitter gold spica atyou pen. I am not sure how Christmassy it looked or whether I pulled it off or not...honest opinions please!

Twinkling #2

I have added red stickles and a sentiment following some advice from a friend..I think it looks much better now.

I will be entering this card into the following challenges;

Creatalicious Challenges  - Christmas in July
Quirky Crafts Challenges - Christmas in July
Annabelle Stamps  - Christmas

Ditto what Clare said! That's a fab stamp and could easily be adapted for any occasion from sympathy to Christmas (as you just proved!)

Happy Sunday, Debs

I love that stamp, Debs. I love the card, the Stickles and sentiment do seem to finish it off perfectly but I like the stamped one for simplicity too. Hugs Cherry xxxx

Hi Debs the #2 card looks fabulous I agree with the others when they say the stickles and sentiment finish it off perfectly.
