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!

March Hare

Han was this weeks gdt over at craftbubble and she came up with a sketch and the lovely theme of animals. Dt cards were great as usual and i enjoyed looking through my images for something suitable. It ended up having a spring theme again so i will be entering it into Stamp something  and a Spoonful of Sugar. I will also enter it into i love promarkers but the sketch isn't exactly the same. Can't you imagine those daffodils......hop hop...

Beautiful butterfly

This weeks challenge on lgs (craft bubble) was no stamped image....AAAARRGGGHH but the dt came up with some lovely stuff and i had a spark of inspiration. Unfortunately it was dependent on my tsv turning up! So with only hours left!! i have uploaded my card to the challenge. I think it's sweet and simple and hope you all like it too x

New Stash

My tsv finally arrived and another few bits i HAD to have :)
