I have only made one Christmas card this year - due to moving home to my flat I haven't had the organisation to make cards & do everything else. But because my Granny is so old now, she has very few friends left so her bungalow is not doecorated for Christmas & she has one… Continue reading Christmas card for Granny
I must admit to being in a bit of a rush today because I have to get to a friend of the family's 65th birthday party in Kent. And because I'm in a bit of a rush I decided to go for a tried and tested card idea. Having already created a Bunting Birthday card… Continue reading Bunting Birthday Card #2

My new job starts in 2 days!!!!! Very excited!!! But enough about me... My niece's 6th birhtday is very soon (such a shame that it is so close to Christmas 😦 but that's not her fault!) I decided that I don't do enough 'age' cards, so I made my mind up to do one. I… Continue reading 6th Birthday Card
