Good luck!


This weeks hasn't been great for me - hence no posts - but I was thrilled to find out I made the Top 3 in a Nutcrafters Challenge - check me out!!!

I wanted to share with you all a card I made last week for one of my work colleagues who is leaving us.

Just a fairly simple card - but I've used some of my most favourite Heather Ellis digi's and my beautiful Memory Box butterfly dies.

I went to the Creative Stitch and Hobbycrafts show in Manchester a couple of weeks back and bought quite a lot of new things.  I actually went a bit crazy and loads of stuff including some fabric,I don't even use fabric, I don't have a clue what I'm going to do with this fabric - probably just admire it from time to time!

I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Shopping Our Stash - Fur or Feathers
The Paper Shelter - Anything Goes
Simon Says Stamp - Anything Goes
Willow Sketchie - Favourite Things (I love Heather Ellis Digis)
Woopsie Daisy - Things with Wings
Craft Us Crazy - Halloween / Anything Goes

Anyway I'm off to bed now - thanks for looking!

huge congrats Julie you do deserve it!and thanks so much for popping over to my blog!
... and re the brayering it really is not that hard.. there is great video on my sidebar by Sandy Hulsart and I just watched that and then again and again and jumped in..
I think folks press to hard and, not evenly enough and stop before it is done..
I am going to do a post on it how to one week soon, out of action for wee while with eye surgery tomorrow God willing. take care, Shaz in oz.x
