Halloween Curvy Keepsake box – spider

Thank you

The same friend who asked me to make him a Baptism card also did some cat sitting and watered my Mum's garden whilst I was in Gloucestershire at the BAPSH Championship, so I wanted to make him a quick thank you card. I already had an idea for a card that I had wanted to… Continue reading Thank you

Baptism Card

A friend of mine will be attending a Baptism this month & he asked me to make a Baptism card for him. Well, where to start??? I was never Baptised & I've only attended two when I was about 10 or 12 so I was a bit lost to be honest! I looked on pinterest… Continue reading Baptism Card

'Pool Party' card stock, that I stamped with the… Continue reading Granny’s 94th Birthday!
