Yesterday was Mothering Sunday in the UK and I would like to share the card I made for my Mum.

Follow your hearts desire

Today is my friend's birthday and he is training to be a doctor, he has his finals very soon.

All three of my Nieces love… Continue reading Lose yourself to dance

Stylish Birthday Card

Today is my friend's birthday & I've popped his card and present through his door so I can share this with you now. He's always been very image conscious; well groomed and well dressed with shiny shoes. So I felt wishing him a stylish birthday would be a nice twist on the 'happy birthday' sentiment.… Continue reading Stylish Birthday Card

Christmas Card Swap Card #1

I've started on my 5 cards for the card swap! I really wanted to use the Lili of the Valley 'Fur Cones' because I just think it's such a cute image & whilst it's not an all-out Christmas image, I love it! Now I must admit I'm not a 'fussy card' maker ie. I don't… Continue reading Christmas Card Swap Card #1
