Hello everyone,let me start by saying sorry to you for not having blogged for a while. I have a lot of health conditions which mean I spend periods of time where I am unwell and spend a lot of time sleeping which means I don't get much done. Anyway I am feeling a little better for now and have been busy trying to catch up with all my chores and crafting that needed doing.
I hope you have all been well and if not that you make a speedy recovery.

I have been busy the last couple of days working on this card which I have done as part of the design team for Gruffies and Guests. This months theme is Patchwork so I thought I would give my new Brother scan n cut a run for it's money as I haven't had much time to play with it. So I used the patterns already stored in it to cut out the patchwork shapes from different patterned papers and then embossed them all to give them a textured look,then I pieced them all together on some darker Purple card stock. I had already chose this beautiful Gruffie holding a bunch of wisteria flowers and cut it out using this die,I don;t remember the name of it as I don't have the packaging any more,I cut another onto purple card and arranged them on the background the decoupaged the image up. then I added a bow,sentiment and a butterfly to finish it off. I hope you like the finished card and that it gives you some inspiration.
I would love to see your creations so why not pop over to Gruffies and Guests and enter this months challenge,there are so many talented crafters out there that I am sure you will come up with some amazing enteries. Happy crafting everyone,stay well and stay happy x
