Vintage Lady

Hello All,

Yes I know its been a while, but its about time I add some organisation in my crafting life too. I have spent today going through all the challenge blogs and noting down details of frequency, rules e.c.t .. My plan is to create a spreadsheet that will go in my crafting organiser ( I know check me out ) The plan is by being more organised I will have time set aside for not just crafting, but sharing it too :-). If all goes to plan I should be a more frequent visitor of blogland!!

I seem to spend more time colouring nowadays that I do cardmaking, I have also just started a class to learn to draw and paint portraits so I am excited to see how that goes.

This image is one I coloured this time last year ( yes time flies!! ) The image is from " A Day for Daisies " I finally got her turned into a card. Now I really am useless at taking note of all the products I have used ( hence my new organiser :-) ) I have used papers from pima and teamed it with some hearfelt creation dies, and given it a good sprinkling of frontage.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:

Crafting from the Heart  - Anything Goes
Digi Chooseday - Anything Goes
Creative Card Crew - Anything Goes
Deep Ocean - Anything Goes
Wed Creative Inspiration - Anything Goes
