I'm such swingerly crafter!

Hello blogworld

Firstly a big hello to my new followers - lovely to see you and hope that you are aware I talk just a tad too much!!

In that I swing from one extreme to the other - extreme CaS to totally over the top with flowers - this is an OTT flowery card. So can anybody tell me what my style is then please?

This one just sort of evolved - I wanted to use the image; remembered the postcard stamp; realised that I hadn't used my flowers for ages; realised that I had never used some sparkly things that I had won from Lisa; then hours later I had this:

Oh and I'm not entirely sure I like it - don't really do hanging over the edge things.  It just looks totally out of proportion to me.

I used:
Sugar Nellie - Elizabeth Bell: Post Box
coloured with my Pro and Flexmarkers
No idea where the postcard stamp came from, I've had it years!!

Memory Box - corner flourish (chopped up)
Whimsy - gate

Papermania - Rose Garden

Anything else?
Wild Orchid Crafts - flowers
Blingy thing - from Lisa
Distress Ink

And this one is sincerely dedicated to Susan - you know why!!!!!

Am off to try and visit a few of you now - eventually.  Oooh, and oooh I'm uploading pictures tomorrow of the progress on the the dining room to craft room conversion - I'm thinking I might even give it it's own label, it's a going to be a loooong journey.

Super sweet card Sarah - adorable cute image and I love the soft colours.
I think it's ok not to have a signature 'style' - it shows versatility :o)

I've not got a definite style either... or at least, I've got several styles, not just one! I think I just get bored doing the same thing, and fancy a change every now and then.

I think this is really pretty. I must use some of my blingy crystal things, I only used a couple of them. Love that sweet image and lovely colours too :o) Hugs, Lisa x

I'm not sure if I have a style or not? I just stick bits on and hope it looks okay!
