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 Chalk Board Challenge
I so enjoyed this weeks challenge because it is a method I have never come across before, creating a chalk board effect. I stamped a 'Crafty Impressions' sentiment on the chalk board and then used 'Papertrey Ink Co.' Spruce and Sprigs die cutters and stamps for the embellishments. I shall be trying this method again especially as my husband was wowed by this card and he is not usually quite so animated by my cards as he was with this one.
