Maybe a bit shabby chic ??

Not sure, but I love it guys !!

Just the hem off one leg from my brothers jeans makes a sweet bracelet.

Add some fab cotton lace from Crafty Ribbons, a bit of embroidery and a few beads !!

These is enough to wrap it round your wrist twice and add a nice fastener. Would make a fun gift for a teenager I think.

 Well that would be ME then !!

Going to add a charm to the fastener as well I think....

Stitching real or faux

Morning guys !!

I always leave my Christmas card makes to the last minute, but decided this year I would try and get ahead. Our fun House Mouse and Friends challenge this fortnight is as always

or the option is

Now I love doing machine stitching on my cards so I have added a lot on my Christmas card using the Stampendous HMD called "Angel Mice" My other love is anything with a vintage feel, so these papers were fab after a bit of distressing....

I have been drawing since a child and studied graphics at College many years ago, I now work as a Medical photographer part time but my love was always drawing. I started cardmaking about 4yrs ago when I bought my daughter a cardmaking kit which we did together, but I’m afraid I got the bug! My daughter preferred scrapbooking. I then started looking online at other blogs and this then became my passion and I loved sharing my cards with likeminded people.
I love stamping and loved finding images, but sometimes I could not find what I wanted so I started to draw myself.
This then has become my second addiction and I have never looked back, I love thinking of new images, and its just fabulous to see others take them and make them into beautiful works of art. Long may it continue!
  Hope you will be able to join in the fun guys !!
