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

Autumnal thank-you

I'm so blessed - I've been working really hard recently and I found it was affecting my mood - I went on Facebook and all my friends were sharing how wonderful their lives were and how they just couldn't be happier. I had been working 11/12 and 13 hour days and been unable to fit… Continue reading Autumnal thank-you

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

New Baby card

I'm so pleased that one of my former colleagues has been safely delivered a baby boy! He and his wife have been waiting for a baby for years, so this is such a wonderful moment for them. I love water lillies and I think they are a sign of new life, so I wanted to… Continue reading New Baby card

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

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

Natalie’s 30th Birthday card

So I know two people who's birthdays happen to fall on Valentine's Day, one of them was my flat mate at Uni. This year is the year of 30th birthdays, so I wanted to send her a card for the 'big' birthday. She's an amazingly talented lady who makes clothes and fabric accessories, so I… Continue reading Natalie’s 30th Birthday card

21st Birthday Card

A friend of mine has asked me to make a 21st birthday card for his niece! I won't lie - when it's a significant birthday card, it feels more stressful to make sure you get it right!! I decided that I was going to go for bling, with a bit of black for sophistication... I… Continue reading 21st Birthday Card

Christmas Card Swap Card #1

I've started on my 5 cards for the card swap! I really wanted to use the Lili of the Valley 'Fur Cones' because I just think it's such a cute image & whilst it's not an all-out Christmas image, I love it! Now I must admit I'm not a 'fussy card' maker ie. I don't… Continue reading Christmas Card Swap Card #1
