Wedding stationary and decorations

Firstly, congratulations to Harry and Meghan on their wedding day! Secondly, as this weekend is all about the royal wedding, I thought I would share some handmade wedding stationary and decorations if you are a do-it-yourself kind of person. Something Old Let's be honest, the vast majority of us who have to produce something ourselves… Continue reading Wedding stationary and decorations

Punny birthday card

I fully appreciate that this card may not be to everybody's taste, so excuse me if you don't like the pun. I have made this card for a lovely, funny woman who did her PhD where I'm studying and has gone on to pastures new, but is still in touch with lots of us at… Continue reading Punny birthday card

Autumnal Thank you card

Last month I had a long weekend in Devon with my Fairy Godparents, it was so nice to get away from my PhD deadlines for a few days! My parents looked after the kittens whilst I was away so they were at home, not in a cattery. I wanted to give my Godparents a thank… Continue reading Autumnal Thank you card

New addition!!!

Squeal!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I've been saving for a TODO for I think maybe a year, but everytime I had a bit saved up I either saw some stamps and dies I HAD to have or the kittens needed a vet trip, so I thought I'd never get one, but then Create and Craft TV had a half… Continue reading New addition!!!

The… Continue reading Football birthday card

Cousin’s Birthday card

Today is my cousin's birthday, so I'd like to share the card I've made for her with you this afternoon. I've been pinning LOADS of cards recently, and was so taken with them all that I lost my mojo. Do you get that some times? I'm so excited by new ideas that I don't sit… Continue reading Cousin’s Birthday card

Suicide Squad inspired birthday card

Have you seen Suicide Squad at the cinema? I went to see it at the weekend with a friend and we enjoyed it but felt that the costumes were very tailored to a male audience. I loved all the promotional artwork though - a mix of Neon and classic comic book style. Today is my… Continue reading Suicide Squad inspired birthday card

Umbrella card

My Step Mother lives in Hua Hin in Thailand, and so when I heard about the bombings on Friday I was fearful that she might have been injured or killed. Thankfully she was at home because the bombings were early in the morning so she wasn't out and about at the time. I wanted to… Continue reading Umbrella card

Granny’s Birthday card

Today is my Granny's 96th birthday, so I wanted to share the card I made for her with you this evening. I've been loving all the white with a splash of colour cards I've seen on Pinterest, so this is my take on the look. I started out with the Creative Expressions 'Striplet - Floral… Continue reading Granny’s Birthday card
