Back after a bit of a break

I have had quite a break from blogging, I have been getting used to a new computer and Windows 8 and have also been playing with Serif software and getting used to that.  Also my hubby bought me the Silhouette  Cameo as an early birthday present and I have been having fun playing with that, and I love it.


So for my card base I used the Cameo and the Bestie image is coloured with Spectrum Noir - first colouring I have done in ages.

Spring is in the Air!

Another beautiful day, bet it doesn't last over Easter.

Well, I have my new computer and I love it, except that I have had to get another photo editing program  and that has been a bit of a nightmare! Haven't worked out how to add my watermark!

I have bought a couple of new digi images from Pink Gem, and this one is called Poppy in Sneakers, coloured with Spectrum Noir and added die flowers etc.

Mojo is making a comeback


It has been a long time since I have made any cards.  I have been doing a bit of sewing and attempting jewellery making.  But now starting to get back into card making.  This is a card I made recently for a little girl's first birthday.


I have used a Wee Digi image called Mary, and coloured with Spectrum Noir and the backing paper is from the BeBunni cd rom from Crafter's Companion.

I am hoping to get a new computer this week end which will make things easier, this one is so old and slow it takes ages just to do one post.

Challenges:

Feeling Crafty Challenge: - For a Child
Crafting from the heart - Cute and Cuddly/Anything Goes
Inky Chicks - Butterflies
Papertake Weekly - Anything Goes
Crafting When We Can - For a Child

My New Hobby


This is my first attempt at jewellery making.  I bought myself some beads, wire and a gizmo and created this necklace and earrings.  I have also booked to go to a class in February so should be able to improve after that.
