I made this card for the 'I Love Promarkers' Lavendar & Lace challenge I used a freebie image from a Papercraft Inspirations magazine (obviously coloured with Promarkers!), a doily that I inked in several colours to try and get a match and the Friend topper from KPertiet Defining Moments Love.

This is one of a batch of Christening Invites I've made. I used the 9 square pattern from Helen over at I get a lot of ideas from Its all Fiddle Fart, I think Helen's great!

This card came from a Papercraft Inspirations article from about 2008. I do like going back over past issues! I've created the stripes & dots using the computer and also printed the star and sentiment. This is the first time I've done stitching on a card. I pre-punched the holes using a needle (I printed out a light grey dashed star to give me a guide to follow) and I used some gold thread from my sewing kit. I'm really happy with the overall effect. What's even better is how simple it was to make AND I've still got all the template for next time!

A New Start!

I've decided to start using this blog to record some of the crafty things I make, either cards are scrapbook pages or stuff with the kids. It remains to be seen if I can keep it up.
