And as per usual I ran out of time to send out my cards, so I had planned to make a massive batch of these cards, stamped hundreds of images and coloured them in, but the die cutting and embossing were a bottleneck and I only managed to assemble 2 of these cards in the… Continue reading Feliz Navidad
My Australian Cousin has dual citizenship and is living and working in the UK, but he does go home to see his family at Christmas. I wanted to make him a Christmas card with the Lawn Fawn 'Critters Down Under' stamps and matching die set. Firstly I die cut the mountain range from the Tattered… Continue reading Cousin’s Christmas 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
Yesterday was Mothering Sunday in the UK and I would like to share the card I made for my Mum. My family have had several dogs, cats and a guinea pig over our lives, but at the moment we have one elderly Birman - they are now my Mum's favourite breed and she doesn't think… Continue reading Mother’s Day card
Today is my friend's birthday and he is training to be a doctor, he has his finals very soon. I still want to keep going with the positive statements on birthday cards, and I thought I would go with a punny one today - he will be a doctor, so why not have some anatomically… Continue reading Follow your hearts desire

She loves card making too and she loves to recieve handmade cards so I wanted… Continue reading Step-Mother’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
I saw this greeting in a stamp set somewhere, I couldn't justify getting the stamp set, but I have alphabet stamps, so I wanted to make it with my alphabet stamps. My last blog post hinted that I was stressed and rather unhappy and as a crafter I know that colouring is a really good… Continue reading Hey Ghoul-friend!
Today is my friend's birthday & I've popped his card and present through his door so I can share this with you now. He's always been very image conscious; well groomed and well dressed with shiny shoes. So I felt wishing him a stylish birthday would be a nice twist on the 'happy birthday' sentiment.… Continue reading Stylish Birthday Card
