Welcome Everyone

The wonderful world of Zoe is what I hope to share with you all here on my blog. Life isn't always easy, but then that's the case whoever you are. But no matter what each day brings I always try to start and end it with a smile - to look back and know I controlled my day, the day didn't control me!

My 1st Challenge card in Blogland!

What a beautiful afternoon it is here in Somerset. Hope the sun's shining where you are?  Well here it is - my 1st challenge card in Blogland.  It's made especially for the launch of the Glittergeeks challenge blog (  Let's hope I get the linking etc right!

Ok the theme is Glitz & Glamour, so I've made a Christmas card (Yes I know it's only June!) for one of my best friends. 

I used Debbi Moore's Paris Glitz & Glamour cd-rom for the decoupage.  I love cutting decoupage by hand even if it is difficult for me some days with my medical conditions, but it's a good way of keeping the fingers moving!

I backed the image onto Kanban Geranium Chestnut cardstock and mounted that onto an A5 Chocolate Centura pearl card base.

Th flowers are from Wild Orchid crafts & the ribbons and bits & bobs are from my crafty stash.

Hope everyone likes my effort.  Thanks for looking and supporting my blog.
Take Care Zo x
