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


Crafty kittens!

Hmmm... The kittens are adorable, but they are annoying too!! I had made a 50th birthday card using loads of die cut letters and managed to keep them out of the paws (and mouths!) of the kittens, stuck the card together and just had to add the nuvo Crystal Drops to leave them to dry… Continue reading Crafty kittens!

Grandmother’s 95th Birthday card

On Sunday it will be my Granny's 95th birthday, the card is in the post, so I thought I would share it with you. I'm afraid this post is a bit picture heavy due to all the different flowers I made for the card - sorry! I really wanted to try out a cascade card… Continue reading Grandmother’s 95th Birthday card

Super 30th Birthday card

A friend of mine loves to play computer games and when we were younger he would make little movies with friends where he played the hero against another of our friends as the 'evil bad guy'.

I'm sure I've said it before, but my Step Dad has a Narrowboat so I regularly make him nautical-themed cards. Today is Father's Day here in the UK, so this is the card and matching tags I made for my Step Dad.

Josh’s 1st Birthday card

I can't believe today is the First Birthday of one of my school friends' son! It seems like only yesterday that he was only a few weeks old when I first met him! Being a little boy I had to use the Waltzingmouse 'Kaboom' stamp set I got with my Birthday money (in case you… Continue reading Josh’s 1st Birthday card

Mother’s Day Card 2015

I've been really inspired by the Clean and Simple look recently and I wanted to give it a go, but I was worried that it would look a bit lost with all the white card! Let me know if you think I got it right! I bought the Creative Expressions 'Finishing Touches - Camellia -… Continue reading Mother’s Day Card 2015

Charlie’s 30th Birthday card

Next week another of my friends will be turning 30, but I'm travelling to a two-day veterinary conference later today so I need to make the card now because I won't have time whilst I'm away. My friend is a sound engeneer so music was an obvious choice of theme for his card. I've seen… Continue reading Charlie’s 30th Birthday card
