Welcome to our first post!

This is the first post on this blog ....... it's a joint blog run by Kathy and Lilian so you will see all sorts of things appearing here. I (Kathy) make quite a lot of cards but dabble in ATC's, art journaling, canvases and, occasionally, scrapbooking whereas Lilian makes cards, knits, cross stitches so we cross a fair few crafts between us.
Lilian's having trouble with blogger right now so I'm posting this but the makes are all Lilian's!

A Christmas card made for a One Layer Card challenge using a fancy C6 card blank, black ink and some images obtained free from a magazine .... the sparkle? well that's my secret ingredient - doesn't sparkle make ALL things better?

Another Christmas card, this time using a coloured C6 aperture blank, more magazine images and black ink and that all important sparkle

An all occasion card .... blinged up it could be Christmas, it could be a masculine card too - this is why I've not put a sentiment on it. Again, I used images which had been free with a magazine - I've had so many I can't remember the names of the mags!

Another Christmas card using a 6" square gold aperture card and a snowie image obtained from a friend, coloured with alcohol markers and then the obligatory twinkle added.

I hope you've enjoyed this first joint post - come back and see us again
