Black and gold appreciation card

All of my PhD supervisors are very hard working, dedicated people, and I am so lucky to have such a wonderful team of supervisors/advisors around me. However, I think one of my supervisors is just amazing - she has two 'part time' jobs (even though they are supposed to be 50%/50% it's more like 70%/70%!!)… Continue reading Black and gold appreciation card

SSS watercolour panel update

So I did decide what to do with the lovely SSS embossed watercoloured panel and made it into a 6x6 card with some X cut adhesive glitter sheets and the sentiment from My Favorite Things 'More Essential Sentiments' white heat embossed on a little strip of black card.

Clearly Besotted stamps are back!

Squeal!!!! I was devastated when Waltzingmouse Stamps stopped trading last year, and when Clearly Besotted closed their website too, 2016 was looking like a sad year for small indipendant British stamp companies... But 2017 is looking up! Clearly Besotted Stamps have moved into new premises, they will be having quarterly new releases (no longer monthly)… Continue reading Clearly Besotted stamps are back!

Mothering Sunday 2017

Happy Mothering Sunday to all the Mothers in the world! My Mum loves Boston Terriers, and if she wasn't caring for my aged Birman cat I think she would have a little pack of rescue Bostons. As Mothering Sunday is all about Mums I wanted to create a card that would make her smile, and… Continue reading Mothering Sunday 2017

Cousin’s Christmas card

My Australian Cousin has dual citizenship and is living and working in the UK, but he does go home to see his family at Christmas.

Cats in a box card

Happy Sunday everyone! I hope you've had a good weekend? I've had a nice gentle weekend in preparation for my next big experiment that starts on Monday, so I won't be cardmaking as much as I would like over the next two months, so I apologise for less frequent posts! Today is my 'Fairy Godmother's… Continue reading Cats in a box card
