Forever Friends Challenge

Here is a quick gift bag I have made for the challenge over at the Forever Friends Challenge Blog - hope my creation is good enough for the challenge, all the DT examples are lovely.

The challenge is to make something for sweets - I normally make sweets or chocolates as little 'extra' Christmas gifts and so this challenge was perfect to get me back into crafting. I have made a bag topper for the challenge and all I need to do now is make loads more of these so that I am ready to fill them at Christmas!

This is the first bit of crafting I have done for ages, apart from a few special birthday cards. The crafting bug has bitten again and I can't wait to find more time to indulge my hobby! You'll have to excuse the photography; I packed my light box away last year and haven't yet had the chance to get it back out and set it up again!

The image is a Forever Friends stamp which I have coloured using water colour pencils and also stargazers pearlescent water colours. You can't see from the photo but the parcel and the white trim on the hat are pearly and glittery! The green background paper is one I created in photoshop to match the holly on the image.

Best wishes

Long time no post!

Hello to everyone who still visits this blog. I cannot believe how long it has been since I last posted a message on here; but I'm back and hope to be getting back to my crafting and blogging. Although I know I probably won't be posting as many cards or creations as I used to - I will try to keep up to date.

I notice since I've been away my visitor counter has gone over 10,000, so thank you to everyone who does still visit my blog.

My craft stash has been calling to me for a while now and I have at last found some time to spend crafting again. I have been looking through the challenge blogs for some much needed inspiration and have already started making a few bits and pieces. Hopefully I'll be back later today to show you what I've managed to get done.

Post soon!
