FOLLOW ME TO
MY NEW ART BLOG HERE I would love your company.

A New Year and a New beginning... I have created a new blog filled with old and new art. It is time for me to focus on something new. I will be leaving this blog open for inspiration and so I can look back at what I have achieved in the future but I will be adding no further content here.

Cen's crafty bits...

is now up and running and what a treat you have in store... there are going to be lots of downloads in printable pdf form available to use in your crafting and you can get the newest downloads here now :D
I used one of the images from the Sillhouettes downloads to create a special card for my Mam's Birthday. I used digital papers and frame from Cen's stuff Victorian Memories kit which you can find here for my background and handcut elements.

Lots of paper sculpting and doodling again on this card with some of my favourite bling and gorgeous sticky ribbon that I bought many moons ago to add a feel of luxury. Well we've only got one Mam right :D

I hand drew the scalloped edge and punched holes because I don't have a waterfall punch... but where there's a will there's a way right :D

Now I have already introduced you to Ellie below on my 1st Christmas card so now I want you to meet Jo :D You can find these two cute characters over at Cen's crafty bits ready to download for printing... there is a coloured version and also one that you can colour yourself using your copic markers, pencils etc.

Here is my first Christmas card using Jo... I think he is so cute and like every little boy he loves his Christmas tree :DMore paper sculpting and bling with printed papers from Cen's stuff Victorian memories digital kit. This kit is one of my all time favourites... I just keep using it again and again and I just love doing hybrid creations.
I hope you will pop over and visit Ellie and Jo and one more thing before I go... if you haven't already... then you really need to pop over to The Papergirls blog and see the amazing entries in the altered cd challenge... they really are all stunning... and don't forget to vote for you favourite too :D
Have a great day
hugs
Chris xx
