My first effort

I don't have much yet in the way of background papers and embellishments so here is my first attempt using what I have.

The Fizzy Moon cross stitch kit was on the cover of a magazine.  I have the same image as a decoupage as well so I used the pink papers from that. 

I am quite pleased with this card generally, I definitely need a bigger choice of crafty bits and pieces for my future cards though.  I can see that I will be buying lots at the NEC next month!

Starting to Blog

My friend has finally persuaded me to start a blog so I can enter crafty competitions.  She has had lots of success with her beautiful cards and I am hoping to do the same!

These are some of my mini cross stitch kits that I have finished recently.  Now I need to decide how best to make them up into cards.  I feel the need for glitter!

I will be going to a craft show at the NEC in November and will be buying lots of things to make my crafty creations sparkle.
