St Valentine’s Day treat box

As a single person I don't really celebrate St. Valentine's day, but the Simon Says Stamp 'Hey Love' release is soooo adorable, who couldn't help but be inspired? First I used the Stampin'UP! box die to create a box base out of Neenah Desert Storm card. I used my Simon Says Stamp love background stamp… Continue reading St Valentine’s Day treat box

Christmas Thank you cards

Normally I don't get coughs and colds, but I was REALLY ill between Boxing Day and my first day back at work so I didn't make any Thank you cards for my Christmas presents, but now I'm feeling better I have remedied the situation. Pinterest is awash with rainbow cards at the moment - the… Continue reading Christmas Thank you cards

Cats in a box card

Happy Sunday everyone! I hope you've had a good weekend? I've had a nice gentle weekend in preparation for my next big experiment that starts on Monday, so I won't be cardmaking as much as I would like over the next two months, so I apologise for less frequent posts! Today is my 'Fairy Godmother's… Continue reading Cats in a box card

Cousin’s Birthday card

Today is my cousin's birthday, so I'd like to share the card I've made for her with you this afternoon. I've been pinning LOADS of cards recently, and was so taken with them all that I lost my mojo. Do you get that some times? I'm so excited by new ideas that I don't sit… Continue reading Cousin’s Birthday card

Umbrella card

My Step Mother lives in Hua Hin in Thailand, and so when I heard about the bombings on Friday I was fearful that she might have been injured or killed. Thankfully she was at home because the bombings were early in the morning so she wasn't out and about at the time. I wanted to… Continue reading Umbrella card

Granny’s Birthday card

Today is my Granny's 96th birthday, so I wanted to share the card I made for her with you this evening. I've been loving all the white with a splash of colour cards I've seen on Pinterest, so this is my take on the look. I started out with the Creative Expressions 'Striplet - Floral… Continue reading Granny’s Birthday card

Niece’s birthday card

I love Gorguss by Santoro because it reminds me of my youngest niece, so this year I made her a card using the 'The Runaway' stamp set by docrafts. The main image was stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black ink onto Neenah Classic Crest card. I coloured it with my Specturm Noir pens. The horse's body:… Continue reading Niece’s birthday card

Mother’s Day 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

Follow your hearts desire

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

Climb every mountain high

Hi! This is my second card for today. So I didn't leave myself enough time to make this card... So the sentiment has been stamped SOOOOO badly - it was my second go at the sentiment as well, but I had to go with what I got - I'm not proud of it at all,… Continue reading Climb every mountain high
