February Challenge: #97
Who am I? (Must be Positive) 
Create something that reflects who you are……….

         TWIST….use bright colours and/or explain a bit about yourself and why you created this piece in your journalling.

Remember: to be eligible for DT Favorite you should attempt the twist.


This card is for an upcoming 21st however I think it captures some of my favourite things!  I like playing with paper and I like flowers and butterflies!  And who wouldn’t want to be 21 again and know what they know now – as the saying goes! 😉

I’ve opted for the twist to explain a little about myself rather than the bright colours.

Before the kiddos came along I would always have fresh flowers in my house.  These days I don’t buy flowers very often or receive them (sometimes for my birthday or wedding anniversary). 

These days I try and bring flowers in from my garden when nature provides such as the roses below.

Having 3 girls I get to enjoy the flowers they get too! 

For this card I embossed the card mount before adding a couple of silver flourishes.  I then added punched flowers with liquid pearl centres and 3 butterflies with rhinestones.  To finish the card I added a black “21” popped up with foam.

Ice berg roses from my Garden

Without boring you all with my varied interests and whole life story I will mention just my creative interests. Along with playing with paper my other creative outlets are sewing quilts, sewing clothes (I have begun sewing more for myself again recently), I like to make soft toys and I like to knit (anything from throws to socks).  I started making candles recently after being given an experience voucher which I used for a candle making class and polymer clay class.  I have dabbled in other things to and will give most things a go.  

In the past I have done embrodiery and cross stitching which I am hoping to rekindle again soon.  I still have a stash of supplies!  I would also like to learn to crochet more than a basic chain and treble.   I have on my “to do list” Sashiko stitching.  I have some ideas I just need to put them into action! 

Sorry for the long winded post

I hope to see you in the challenge – Remember no stamps!

Thanks for stopping
