Hi, My name is Melissa. I'm a married working mum of two with a hectic schedule. I began papercrafting in 2004 with my SIL Jo, . I have always loved rubber stamps and now, through Jo, I have a soft spot for digis. I also love scrapbooking.
I started my blog in October 2010 and have been lucky enough to have joined several Design Teams in that time.
Hello there everyone! Hands up all those getting fed up with all this snow now! The children are still loving it though disappointed their school has stayed open - so far!! It's quite nice when walking the dogs, but REALLY not looking forward to travelling in it if the doc lets me go back to work on Tuesday! I have been a bit naughty whilst off work - done a bit of on-line crafty shopping, medicine for the soul (LOL!) - can't wait to see my new goodies!
I'm really excited today, and just a tad nervous too LOL! I'm here for my first EVER, DT project - WOW! I've only been blogging since October and I'm soo chuffed to be joining the highly talented ladies over at the Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge! This weeks challenge has been set by Jane and she's come up with a rather fabby sketch!
I decided to use one of my favourite pixie chicks charmed downloads as I thought she'd be perfect for this. I decided to use an 8x8 card for this but then had a bit of trouble with the oval due to the larger size! I ended up drawing around the base of my egg basket, cutting it out and layering onto white cardstock which was then hand cut to size.
Isn't she lovely! I decoupaged her wings and the flowers in her hair. Glitter was applied to her hairband, wings and some of the flowers.

I hope you have time to check out the rest of the design team, they've created some gorgeous cards for this theme.
