Welcome to my Blog!

Hello Crafters! Crafting is my escape into my own little world full of ideas. Some of my best creations are produced in the early hours of the morning out of my craft cupboard …. hence ‘Open all hours’. Plus, as I have three lovely small children, often, evenings, weekends and late at night is the time when I can concentrate on making cards.

Christmas - Two Challenges

I'm still trying to get my Christmas cards done so it's great to find a couple of challenges with the theme 'Christmas', 'Everybody Art Challenge' and 'Papertake Weekly'. Here's my little 'Gorguss Girl' with the addition of a santa hat and my new 'forest scene' stamp in the background, the sentiment is a Penny Black stamp. This is amazingly organised for me with my Christmas cards, I'm normally scribbling them out at the last minute! Bye for now,

Whiff of Joy Challenge 56

Here's my card for this week's Whiff of Joy Challenge. I made it a few days ago but I've been busy and the light hasn't been too good for taking photos when I've had the chance. I loved this sketch and I needed to start making my Christmas cards so I thought this would be a good time to start. I've added a tree and some snow to the background to give it a more festive feel! Hope you've all had a lovely weekend. Bye for now, Michele x
