Welcome to my blog

I hope you enjoy reading my posts, and please leave me a comment. I always enjoy reading them, and will try to visit you in return.

You are welcome to copy any of my designs, as long as you do not take credit for them yourself. I am very happy for you to sell them. If I have used anyone else's design, I always try to give credit where it is due. If I have missed anything, please let me know and I will put things right.

This is intended to be mainly about my crafting stories, as a personal record of what I do. However, I interpret crafting quite widely, not just paper crafting but other things too. I have a butterfly mind and like to change from one thing to another depending on what I feel like on a given day - knitting, crochet, cross-stitch, cards, baking and several others.

Christmas is coming!

This is another card using MSC Craft e'Christmas, the Star of Wonder disc.  The base card is printed with one of the backing sheets.  Then the topper was printed several times to get the layers I needed to give depth, the main one mounted onto deep blue mirri card, then the tree mounted off centre as it is on the original topper.  The stripes on the right were also cut from the topper and then mounted on top of the stripes on the original topper.  The sentiment was also mounted on the blue mirri card and finished off with three gems.  I also put gems on the centres of the stars, just for a bit more glitz. The background of the topper looks shiny.  It isn't but just beautifully created to show light and shade.  This card was done for the launch of the set of discs, but as we were on holiday in a gloriously sunny Cornwall that week, I have no idea if it was ever shown.  I am afraid I only saw whatever was on while I had breakfast.  There are times when holidays beat crafting hands down.
