Let it Shine at Try it on Tuesday

Hi All. Welcome to Jumbled Crafts and thank you for calling in on your blog journey.

At Try it on Tuesday we have a new challenge starting today and lasting for the next two weeks. The theme is Let it Shine so lots of things you could do for that but if you need ideas and inspiration our team have made some wonderful projects so do pop and see what they have made.

 I made a card for a man who loves to receive a special handmade card and also loves art. Not sure he will love my art but I have used a painting I did in 2004 and have changed it a bit with a digital addition. Can you see what I added?

Original painting

Hope you will also join in at Tag Tuesday were we have the theme Cake . There is still a week to join us there.




This week I have been knitting hedgehogs. The vet where my daughter takes her
 cats makes nests for the knitted hedgehogs and raffles them to raised funds for Cat Protection. I have made lots in the past but couldn't get the special wool again until now. Still a few balls of wool to go to add to the hedgehog family. Vic said it looked like a coven of hedgehogs on the spare bed.




Love Chrissie xx

Your card made from your own art is just beautiful and all those amazing hedgehogs- super! We had one as a guest in the garden recently.. the dogs were a bit confused about this visitor.

Yes, I saw the light you added to the lighthouse. It's a gorgeous digital entry and a beautiful card, too.

Those hedgehogs are adorable. A coven? LOVE how Vic described them. So good of your daughter's vet to take up for the cause, too.

I love your painting Chrissie, so clever, I would really like to be able to draw and paint. Your hedgehogs are brilliant, though I'm not sure a 'coven' is very kind, maybe a 'prickle' lol xx

The lighthouse seascape is so atmospheric, especially with that wonderful beam of light reaching out across the waves - great interpretation of the theme. And your hedgehogs are just adorable!
