Have been wanting to challenge my style for a while now and have finally  taken the plunge, over the last few days have been doing a course in mixed media art at Pop#3. Very interesting and definitely way, way out of my comfort zone. Will post some attempts soon... when I'm happy with what I produce.....may be a while.
In the meantime made this for my son's partner, and have had so many requests for the same card, the beauty being it is so simple to do but don't tell anyone.
Crafty hugs to all who need them. x

Thoughts of Christmas

Dove of Peace
 Sweet Desire Die - Personal Impressions
As the summer night are fading fast our thoughts turn to Christmas and so the mad rush to complete all our Christmas Cards begins. What colours to have as a theme this year, what design to use, what embellishments to put on, and will they go through the post box now. Stamps are expensive now so that last thought should maybe be the 1st one on the agenda. Which leads me to the Dove of Peace  may just be the one this year  simple change background paper and colour for new look simple embellishment which should in theory go through the box with no problems.
May try something else don't know yet so watch this space, Big hugs to those who need them xx.

Not usually a fan of orange colour range but this one peachy.
Raining here today so have snuck into the craft room and Duffy came too, no wonder she's always covered in glitter.
Got two more birthday cards to make then really must start on the C cards with Carols playing in the background to set the mood. Crafty hugs to all.

Purple Butterfly

Enjoyed playing with the different dies for this one,  hope you like it.

These are a variety of stick pins made by me wanted to try something different, and although I like these took a long time deciding which actual beads to use.

My how time flies

Hello, I have been playing with my Craft Artist Pro from Serif bought it about 2 years ago but just never got around to using it. I have now decided to do some scrapbook papges for my album in memory of those I have recently lost, I did however get side tracked as truth be told my passion really is Card making and CAP really lends itself to some interesting layouts and I am loving it, soooooo here are just a few of my attempts hope you like them, please leave a comment should you wish to would love to get some feedback.

 On a roll now and seem to have my mojo back, lost  it for a while and started knitting wooly hats for hubby and his golf chums, I can now do them in my sleep I have made so many.

Amazing what you find in your stash boxes, had these already cut for something, can't remember what now, but I like the end result and the very muted colour palette
