Reality has limits but our imagination does not, so let it run free and your creativity will flourish.
My imagination helps me create unique work as I strive to produce beautiful things and grow in capability, experience and confidence. My goal as I travel this journey of creativity, is to share my work and inspire others so that they themselves, may create something distinct and original too.

I'm back again with my second post for the day. As I explained earlier, I want to show you the card that my friend Ellie made.
For those who don't know, Ellie is my neighbours daughter and has been learning cardmaking with me for a while now. It all started when I was having a clear out one day back last year. I gave a bag of goodies to two of my neighbours for their children to play with. Ellie had lots of cardmaking items in her goodie bag and since that day has been having weekly lessons with me and making cards. Unfortunately I had to stop the lessons for a few months (my health got worse) but on Saturday we managed to get our crafting bits and pieces out and made a simple but stylish Christmas card together.
Here is Ellie's card:-
Isn't it cute. Ellie stamped the little Christmas bear and then coloured him with pencils. The papers are from a set I purchased some time ago from QVC and the button is from the Hobby House. All the card used is Centura pearl card in Ice White. I was unsure at first if the pencil would work properly on the pearlescent card but they took to it well and were infact really rich and vibrant.
I hope you like Ellies card and are able to leave her a comment ot two.
To end, here is my card made using the same layout sketch. Something simple again as we are trying to find the right style for her Christmas cards for this year. It has to be fairly easy design for the bulk cards or they will never get finished.
I used some more of the paper pack from QVC, going for the snowy blue & white theme. I added some white organza ribbon with white pearls and buttons from the Hobby House to embellish
I do hope you liked the results of my teaching lesson this week. We had fun, chatting and crafting and are planning to do the same thing again back on a Friday evening every week... health permitting of course.
That's it for today. Take care and enjoy the rest of the day. Hugs Linda x
