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.

Delicious Doodles - Winter Wonderland

This card could fit in several challenges at the moment.  First of all, nothing new was used in the making of this card so it fits well into the Use It Up in 2012.  A lot of it came from my Christmas bits box, so it also fits into Di's Snippets Challenge.  It is winter and in shades of blue and white, so it also fits into the Delicious Doodles Winter Wonderland challenge.

The base card is a full sheet of dark blue pearlescent Stardream card from PDA.  The trees on the front were cut from a card we were sent a couple of years ago., and the background is from a My Craft Studio background design.  The stars on the top of the trees were left overs from silver peel offs.  It was matted and layered onto silver mirri card.  I then just embellished the card with a silver holographic peel off and some little gems to finish it off.

Brilliant Maggie - very elegant and great use of snippets.You still have time to enter it into my pal Sandra's Rudolph Day challenge - see here: http://stampingforpleasure.blogspot.com/2012/01/its-rudolph-day.html

Oh man I can't work out how to put a link into comments for the life of me!! Bet you know how though?

And there's a little prize, but the main idea is to make a Christmas card on the 25th of each month - hence Rudolph Day :) Go for it!
