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!

*2nd post of the day - please scroll down*

I bought some versamagic stamps as I wanted to get a chalky effect on some of my stamps. I had a play yesterday - not as 'chalky' as I expected but I am Looking forward to trying them on some darker cardstock!

I used a couple of snowflakes stamps and stamped straight onto kraft cardstock. I added some twine and sentiments - 2 quick and easy Christmas cards!

I will be entering these cards into the following challenges;

CAS-ual Fridays - wallpaper
Divas by Design - Anything Goes
Simon says Stamp - Anything Goes
Hobby Cutz Blog - Anything Goes

Hope your Sunday is going well!
