30th Birthday Thank you cards

With Birthdays comes birthday money to spend on new crafty things! (and lots of thank you cards to write) So with my Birthday money I had a little splurge on the Waltzingmouse Stamps website & bought the 'Kaboom' die, 'Kaboom', 'Halftone Basics', 'Happy Hello Thanks', 'Old Country Roses' and 'Vintage Postcards' stamp sets. I decided… Continue reading 30th Birthday Thank you cards

Best Friend’s 30th

Today is my best friend's 30th birthday! I'll be meeting with her later today in a pub near her house with other friends of hers where I can give her her card & presents. I wanted to make her a card in a box, which I had never done before, so I started early (in… Continue reading Best Friend’s 30th

Christmas Card Swap Card #3

Hmm... Somehow I'm only on card #3 and the postal deadline for the swap is 30th November!! I'm dreadful at getting things done before a deadline!!! I went for a CAS card a) because I wanted to make it before the deadline and b) I found out what the postage was for Card #1 and… Continue reading Christmas Card Swap Card #3

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

Plumeria birthday card

It will be a friend of the family's birthday on Saturday, so I've made her a card to celebrate. She has lived abroad in some very exotic places & I made her an exploding box card with orchids for her 60th birthday. This birthday card wasn't going to be any less exotic, so when I… Continue reading Plumeria birthday card

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

Granny’s 94th Birthday!

I'm flabbergasted that it's my Granny's 94th birthday this week! One of my neighbours has some gorgeous flowers outside their front door, so I used this as my inspiration for her card: I started off with an A6 textured white card base & some Stampin' UP! 'Pool Party' card stock, that I stamped with the… Continue reading Granny’s 94th Birthday!

Stampin’ UP! Catalogue launch party 2014

Ooooh!!!! Too many nice things to buy!! But I made myself a promise: that I would only get inks & cardstock today & amazingly I was strong!! My Stampin' UP! demonstrator Nikki organised the launch party at Debbie's house this morning/afternoon. Unfortunately it was rather wet, but there was lots for us to do inside,… Continue reading Stampin’ UP! Catalogue launch party 2014

A big squishy hug – WMFC 20

I'm just uploading this before rushing off for work!!! I stamped the leaf border from the Waltzingmouse 'Gift Card It' on an A6 white card base (tent fold orientation), then I used the co-ordinating die set to cut the gift card holding strip in the middle of the card & stamped the sentiment in Stampin'… Continue reading A big squishy hug – WMFC 20

Return to blossoming health – WMF20

Phew! I managed to finish this in time to enter the Waltzingmouse Fanatics Challenge! This fortnight's challenge was colours: Aren't those colours lovely & fresh? I LOVE orchids, so my first thought was to make loads of paper orchids in the colour scheme, but then I realised that that wouldn't really showcase my Waltzingmouse stamps… Continue reading Return to blossoming health – WMF20
