Sew Serendipitist

Hi to you all,

I always wondered when I was reading other blogs about how they make cards to enter into multiple challenges.
Do they pore over the challenge list trying to incorporate many items, or is there an easier way ???
Well I think I discovered's called serendipity !

I set out to make a special card for my best girl and although it didnt turn out as I had planned, (why do we have these impossible images in our head ?), I was more than happy with the result.

Upon bloghopping through the blogs that I follow, I find that I can enter this card into no less than 4 challenges ! Woo hoo !
So here we go

I was pleased with the roses. I started trying to make a completely different flower and ended up with these. More serendipity.

Last lot.....

Hiya all,

Just going to show you the last few birthday cards. These are anonymous I'm afraid as they were from Joans other crafty friends, who I don't know, but they are too nice not to show.

Enough now of blogging everyone else's creations and back to my own.(When I get round to making them).

I have three cards to make this month and a date on Saturday at the Eclectic Keepsakes Crop so hopefully should have some stuff to show and tell soon.

Happy Crafting

And there's more...

Time to show off another few of Joans birthday cards..sorry I am still running behind, life is just getting in the way at the moment !

Anyway, here is Hildas book card, all beautifully stamped as usual.

And the inside is just as lovely...

Jeans card is another stamped marvel...check out that ruffled ribbon, and the handmade flowers.

And lastly for today a fabulous card from Trudy with a lovely gift of altered jewellery.

Hope you all enjoy looking at them as much as I do.

Oh and thank you all for your comments about my background, I like it too so I'll keep it for a while.
