A poppet of a challenge

Good evening
Not a great deal accomplished today, but that's ok, there's always another day.  I did have a bit of a play with my newest craft CD - Paintbox Poppets from Crafters Companion - if you take a look on my sidebar >>>>>> there should be a blinkie linking to their UK blog - there is also a US blog which you can find via the UK one.

I deliberately chose to get a bit more familiar with this CD, partly because it is very lovely and partly because I wanted to do something for the weekly CD Sunday Challenge blog which this week is "spots and dots"

I haven't got to the point where I'm comfortable using lots of embellishments, and whilsts I love doing a complicated bit of paper engineering, at the moment, my engineering mojo is missing.  But it will be back.   Until that time I need to keep my crafting mojo afloat.

So here's a simple little card using one sheet of images from the card companion section so actually really cheap to make.

And as mentioned above - I'd like to enter it in the Spots and Dots Challenge over at The CD Sunday Challege

Later folks

Some stuff about the stuff in the blog


Very new at this blogging lark, so forgive me if I get a bit befuddled. User name is derived from my maiden name of George and the fact that by the time the Olympics are held in the UK in 2012, I will look as if I could compete. And not as a sumo wrestler.

For starters there is only one blog with contain my thoughts, but this might evolve into 3 or 4 when I work out what I'm doing.

In the main it will cover my slimming journey, my quilting exploits, my get fit and stay fit campaign, and my photography. Not forgetting my recent TrollBead obsession.

Should I ever get a lovelife you might get glimpses of that as well.
