Blog Closure


Hi, it is with a sad heart,  to let you know I have, today,
closed down my latest blog
After a short spell of eighteen months, the time has 
come to say goodbye. 
There are many reasons, too many to start listing,
as none is more responsible than others.
Suffice to say,  challenge blogging is not as
active as it once was, players are finding other
sources of sharing their creations. 
Please pop over to the blog for my farewell
comments, thanks and praises.
I thank you, personally, if you have at any time
been a supporter of the blog.  Thank you.

I added a little glitter to the wings of the bees.
Happy crafting.

Nail Polish Technique


Hello, thanks for visiting my blog, it is appreciated.
Today we have an exciting challenge beginning on
Have you tried the Shaving Foam technique? Well this is
the same but it gives amazing strong results. 
Please don't miss visiting the blog, for details, links and of
course the fabulous inspiration from the DT. 
My thanks to them all
I have had a fabulous time playing with this technique.
I paid a few pounds for the Nail polishes but it will not 
be wasted.  I will be buying more colours, for my next session.
Thank goodness for Poundland. Look at 
my results with watercolour card and photocopy paper. 

For my card I used a strip of the watercolour card and
die cut a circle from a piece of photocopy paper
Matted onto black card, the sentiment is by 
My Paper World.
I do hope you will give this technique a try.  It is 
stepping away from comfort zones, it did me, but 
I thoroughally enjoyed doing something different.

Lots of Flowers

Good morning, I hope you are well, thanks for your visit.
Today we begin a new challenge at Make My Monday.
Silvi has chosen #98 Lots of Flowers (more than 3)
Please visit the blog, to see the few rules, not to miss
the fabulous inspiration from the design team.
I made a 5 x 7 card, using the resist technique which 
has been one of my favourite techniques since I learnt it.
I used a selection of stamps from my stash, and 3 Distress Inks.
Picked Raspberry, Fossilised Amber and Abonded Coral.
The greeting stamp, by Altenew, has been heat embossed with gold EP.
A few crystal gems randomly added.
I am so looking forward to seeing lots of flowers over 
the next two weeks.
