Hi All from a dark, wet NE UK coast. Too awful to go for a walk yet but maybe the sun will come out this afternoon. A good time to craft and join in a few challenges and then maybe watch some tennis on television so no grumbles from me. Thank you for calling in at Jumbled Crafts on your travels

At Country View Crafts this month the theme is Feeling Blue.

I hadn't many blue things at all but used Distressed ink to dye a few things to match. The flower is stamped on parchment and coloured with felt tips.

Our Creative Corner have gone Topsy Turvy which is something to think about for sure

Think I may need a few of these cards as we always seem to be upside down at Christmas Time. I decorated the digital tree with brushes I made in Paint Shop Pro

Have a lovely weekend

  1. 'evening from Aussie land Chrissie, I tell you, considering you didn't have many blue things your card turned out gorgeous. I love it amazing what you did AND your upside down Christmas tree card is awesome...how creative are you...xx
    Enjoy your weekend.
