About Me

My photo
Hi, Welcome to my Blog. I'm an eclectic kind of crafter delving into many pots. I am just about managing to keep up my Scrapbooking Diary (usually about 6 months behind), plus any cards as required. I have a new found love of watercolour and Bible Journaling plus recently Junk Journaling too. Previously I've also dabbled in ATCs, Tags, Altered Books, Mixed Media, Art Journaling, Décopatch, Knitting, Crochet, and Embroidery amongst other things. I live in Surrey, UK with my husband, our son has left home now. For exercise I usually play Badminton and go Ballroom and Latin Dancing, but am plagued by a bad back. I like walking which I couple with Geocaching and sometimes Bouncing on my Rebounder (mini trampoline). I guess I am officially retired now. I am a born again Christian, currently worshiping at my local Vineyard Church.

November Fireworks

Continuing the firework theme for November.

For those "over the pond", here in the UK we commemorate with fireworks, the thawarting of the Gunpowder Plot, where Guy Fawkes tried to blow up the Houses of Parliament back in 1605.

This little ATC is for a SWAP, where we were asked to use something that was a gift. As I rarely buy gems, I suspect the blue gems must have been in a free gift on a magazine some time ago.

Very nice - like the rocket firework and the interesting edging to the card - did you use clear embossing powder? Elizabeth xx

That's a great rocket BJ and love the shiny letters too. I think you should use gems more often, they look fab! Crafty hugs, Anne x
