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 Faith/Art Journaling too. I've challenged myself to make an art journal page a day for this my 60th year. Previously I've also dabbled in ATCs, Tags, Altered Books, Mixed Media, 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. I also like walking/Geocaching and sometimes do a bit of Bouncing on my Rebounder (mini trampoline). I have been learning to play the harp for the past 10yrs. I am now officially retired. I am a born again Christian, currently worshiping at my local Vineyard Church.

More Blue & Green

Gosh, it would seem that Blue and Green are the order of the day for me at the moment.

Also I think my word for the year ought to be - amalgamation as I have done it yet again.

Here's the thing - I needed 2 birthday cards for my friend's twin boys who share my birthday this month and thought the Leftovers Challenge over on the 12 Months Blog would do the trick nicely.

I used my dies and various scraps of patterned papers and card. The arrows came from a diecutting session at craft club a few months back - knew they would come in handy.

It worked well for boys' cards as they are often a challenge in themselves.
