City Crafter Challenge Blog Week 132 ~ Make Over

Hello all, it is MAKE OVER week here at City Crafter Challenge Blog

Did you ever look back at the work you created months ago, or years ago, and say to yourself "really? I make this?" It happened to me all the time, LOL! I think because we keep creating, and keep practicing, we get better each day without knowing it, and we do not like the old thing anymore, and thought we probably should add this, take away that, change this, move that, use a different paper to make it better, that's what my mind go through when I look back at my old work, so I thought, why not take one of old work and give it a MAKE OVER!

Week 132 ~ Make Over

In this challenge, please show us one of the past work and give it a new look, we want to see both the old and new work on your blog post please!

Guest Designer

Get to know Barbara.....

Hi, my name is Barbara Daines, and I live in the UK, just outside of the world heritage City of Bath.
I live with Alan, my (very understanding) partner of 20 years and our German Shepherd, Finn.
2 handsome sons, and one gorgeous daughter-in-law live in Bath, and........our first grandchild is due in April.....mega excited.
I've crafted all of my life, and have been papercrafting for 5 years. My styles have changed drastically over this time, and now I'm really into getting messy....Inks, stains, Pan Pastels etc (if you could see my fingers as I'm tying this, you'd know what I mean!)
I was asked to take one of my own creations and do a makeover. I chose a card that I made and blogged on 19th September. I liked the card but wished I'd done a few things different.....so I have. Hope you like it.
