Hi, Welcome To My Blog

I love various different types of crafts and have had a dabble at most over the years, some with greater success than others. I believe that apart from loving and giving, being creative is the next most important thing to do. There is something about being creative that taps into something deep within us that makes us feel good with the world. But then we were made in the image of God, God The Creator... so I guess being creative will be second nature to us if we allow. The problem is that many people will not have a go because they make the mistake of measuring themselves against others... and that is just not a good thing to do. I create because I like to create, not because I have to impress anyone else or be better than anyone else. I created this blog with a lot of help from my son-in-law, as a personal scrap book that I am happy to share with others if they wish to take a look.... Enjoy <><

Merry Monday Sentiment Card



I didn't have a large sentiment to use for this Merry Monday challenge and as the sentiment had to be the focus of the card, I had to come up with a way of dressing a card to make it interesting.

I found an old picture of a template Christine had given me years ago and decided to use that as my base, cutting out different but hopefully complimentary papers.  I cut out the shapes, stamped the sentiment and stuck them on before embellishing the card with little die cuts, etc. to add interest.  I really enjoyed making it.

    1. Thank you Bonnie... I was pleased I have found a better place to photograph the card so that the glitter paper shows up fairly true. Merry Monday challenge as good as ever.
