Granny’s Christmas Card

I'm sure I've mentioned it hundreds of times, but my Grandmother is 94 and lives alone, so I like to make her a card for Christmas because she doesn't get very many. Unfortunately her sight and hearing are both very bad, which adds to her isolation - she has a carer who comes in daily… Continue reading Granny’s Christmas Card

So I know what you're thinking - what happened to card #4?

Mum’s Birthday card – 3 months early!!!

My late Step Brother always used to say I was 'very lastminute.com' & he had a point - I would always start a project and suddenly find that it should have been completed yesterday...

Mother’s Day card 2014

This card involved lots of elements! I was hoping to enter it in the February Lilli of the Valley Monthly Challenge, but I finished it too late... My Mum simply adores gardening, so even though the stamp used is one of the boys from Lilli of the Valley, it always makes me think of her!… Continue reading Mother’s Day card 2014
