I have also been experimenting with different things and am quite pleased with the result of my latest project so thought I'd share it with you :) ..... I really am soooo out of touch here but I might even enter some challenges if I can remember how to or even where to find them again...lol

My project is a mixed media canvas....it's also my first attempt so with a few tweaks here and there my next SHOULD be better ...hope you like it.

 I thoroughly enjoyed this project and even though it didn't turn out  quite like I had hoped it would I have hopefully learned a lesson or two along the way for the next one :)  I hope you like it too ?

The challenges I am going to enter this into are the following .......

1... Scribble and Scrap # 38 ...Anything goes
2... Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge ... Add a little texture

Hi everyone!  it's been a while since I last posted anything so will make it a quickie :)  
 I was asked to make a wedding card recently and although its not needed until July I was adamant I would do it in plenty of time and hopefully get me back in the swing of crafting again and hopefully entering challenges.

This pic shows the card closed on top of the box. 

 .....and opened up

Thank you for popping by today ....hope you liked my card and I hope to see you again real soon with another :)

I was hoping to enter my make into Lili's little Fairies ~ anything goes challenge with using their Christmas Star image  but I  missed  it :(  I really should  try to craft a bit quicker ... lol 

Sorry for the blurred pic, I'm getting fed up of now  how they turning out  ... I kept it in though to show you the shape :(

A Very Merry Christmas ....

 I used the beautiful LOTV image All Wrapped Up and coloured her using Copics & Polychromo pencils,  I then went round the whole image using a very pale blue pencil  blending  slightly with  Sansodor ... it's the first time I tried this and was a bit scared I'd ruin the image but I think it turned out ok :)

 The little bird house/bird are from Marianne Design (LR0203) Creatables ...I added a touch of red to the birds breast to make it look like a Robin...
 The flowers are from WOC .... christmas colour carnations, I sprayed them with Perfect Pearls Mist and sprinkled on some gold Glamour Dust  then added  a few berries and leaves from my McGill Pine punch.

I am entering my card into the following challenges .........
1) ... Lili's Little Fairies ~ Classic Christmas
2) ... Sparkles Christmas Challenge #21 ~ Traditional
3) .. Stamp and Create  .. October Challenge ~ Winter Wonderland

Thats about it ...off to link up before i miss the deadline on one ....Thanks for the visit today ..take care & stay warm :)
