New to Me!

Hi everyone, this blogging thing is new to me so please bear with me. I have yet to decide if I'll use this for both my cardmaking/scrapbooking and cross stitching or if I'll set up two blogs. Perhaps it's better to start with one until I get the hang of things.

I've been cross stitching for a very long time, since grade 4, and enjoy it very much. Depending on the project it takes quite a while to complete but once done it is very gratifying. Most of the time I give away my stitched images as gifts to friends and family, the others I keep and put up in the house. Needless to say I actually don't have a lot in the house.

As for cardmaking, I have been doing it for about 2 years now, so I'm still in the honeymoon phase. I also enjoy this, it's a lot quicker with the same gratifying results. I seem to do a lot of challenges, that way I learn to use different techniques and methods. I do, however, seem to be collecting a number of cards, I make more than I need to give away. My 10 year old daughter has joined me and has a blog herself, Cards by Nesha. She recently entered Karens Doodles challenge for kids, it runs bi-weekly.

I also entered Karens Doodles challenge, but at her U.S site, here, I really love her images. Here is the card I made for her very first challenge, last week.

This was a sketch challenge, this week the challenge is to make a Easter or spring card. Go check it out, I promise you'll fall in love with her images too!
