Birthday card using Pantone color of 2019 – Living Coral

This week I made another card 'to sell' to my Mum because she asked for feminine birthday cards as well. My crafty mojo is rock bottom at the moment - unfortunately my Seasonal Affective Disorder is really bad at the moment, so I'm constantly tired and I just don't have any energy. I wake up,… Continue reading Birthday card using Pantone color of 2019 – Living Coral

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!

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.

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!

Birthday Card for my Step Sister

Today is my Step Sister's birthday - her first since the loss of her older brother. I wanted to make her a card that was feminine but a bit elegant and different. I love the impact a black card has - not the first colour you would reach for for a birthday card, right? But… Continue reading Birthday Card for my Step Sister
