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!

Good Luck - Crafty Boots

Happy Monday everyone -  and it's a particularly happy day for me as it's my birthday! I'm the grand old age of ...........37! Birthdays don't bother me, I'm like a big kid really.

Anyway today sees the launch of another Crafty Boots Challenge and this time the theme is 'Good Luck' as chosen by the lovely Sara.

I decided to use my Craft Artist Pro to create the base card, using backgrounds and embellishments from Digi-kits that I have, I added the text in the programme as well as creating the inside greeting.  Despite the 3D look, the only thing that isn't printed flat is the Saturated Canary image which I coloured to match the base card and then stuck onto the printed card.  I wanted to show how it's possible to put digital crafting with colouring of your own hand.

As you can see here I glazed her glasses using a Sakura glaze pen -  a fun idea I think!

The inside - the 'Good Luck' sentiment and the greeting inside are done so that this card could be used for exams, starting a new job, going to uni, any occasion where you would want to wish someone well.

Anyway I look forward to seeing your creations!

I'm off to indulge in some birthday cake! Take care Zo xx
