My Creative endevours have moved

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.

Tuesday, 17 February 2009


Hi all... my apologies first of all for not managing to visit you all over the weekend as I had hoped to do... unfortunately sometimes life gets in the way and at the moment I have some 'stuff' going on and I have decided that it would be better if I take a break from blogging for a couple of weeks until I manage to sort everything out.

So that in mind this will be my last 'proper' post for a while... although I have sorted out some digi freebie kits and some mini card making kits for you to download if you want them and have postdated the posts so there will still be a few goodies for you to see and grab while I am away :D

Before I disappear I wanted to share this with you though.... I should have put it up last week but just didn't happen. This was my card for Dawn's ICSketch#3 challenge there is another sketch up now so if you love sketches pop over and see all the gorgeous DT cards for some inspiration and maybe join in yourself.
Once again the paper and stamps I used are by Crafty Individuals I love this pretty lady 'with love' stamp and you just know I adore wings.
I created her 'tiara' with a corner stamp... cut out and mounted on a 3d pad with a little bit of bling added too and paper pieced her dress and wings.

The purple border is an elegant lace effect stamp and the bottom edging was created with a Fiskars border punch.
Thanks for looking and for continuing to visit and leaving me your lovely comments. I will be back as soon as I can and will look forward to it.
