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

Organisation

Hi everyone! I've just watched the latest episode of Line of Duty on BBC1 - it's really gripping! On a completely different note, I wanted to quickly share what I've been up to, craft-wise, this weekend. Having watched several craft room tours and gone green with envy over the Christmas holidays I thought to myself… Continue reading Organisation

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

Football birthday card

On Monday it will be my friend's birthday, I finished off his card last night but let the Crystal Drops dry overnight. He is an avid supporter of Chelsea Ladies football club, so when Tattered Lace brought out the Footballers die set with the lady footballer I had to use it for his card. The… Continue reading Football 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!

Step-Sister’s birthday card

Today is my eldest step-sister's birthday, I'll be going to see her later today, but before I go I'll post her card and present here. I must admit I bought her present in May and started work on this project back in August, but with very little urgency. So it was only right at the… Continue reading Step-Sister’s birthday card

Mum’s Birthday Card and present

Friday will be my mother's birthday and she isn't very 'computer savvy' so I feel safe posting this before her birthday. I stamped the IndigoBlu 'Sunflower' stamp on Neenah card with VersaFine 'Vintage Sepia' ink. I coloured it in with Spectrum Noir GB1, GB3, Ct1, CT4, TN8, EB4, EB6, JG1 and JG5. Using my Perfect… Continue reading Mum’s Birthday Card and present

Step sister’s Birthday Card

I saw this card on the Heartfelt Creations site and I loved the colour scheme and how sparkly it was! I wanted to re-create it for my Mum's birthday card because she loves purples and greens, and then I realised that it's actually my step sister's birthday before my Mums! (Yes, I am very scatty!)… Continue reading Step sister’s Birthday Card
