Hearts in Bloom

Just got this stamp today but it was to nice to resist. So I made a card for my friends birthday which is in October. Nearly was a disaster When I had finished I noticed I had the birds upside down to which my OH said "It doesn't matter cos birds hang upside down anyway" Now only a man could have said that Luckily I managed to turn it round

For my youngest Grandson Luke

My youngest grandson Luke is seven and very outspoken and bright but never rude or cheeky He is a very a lively lad and only an over the top Christmas card would be okay for him This one is very bright but he will love it and its just him.

A retirement card

One of my friends is retiring from the school I used to work at and as my son just sent me this Penny Black stamp for my birthday I thought it was very appropriate for her card I love the sentiment on this Had to look long and hard for the right one Hope she will like it.

No people like Snowpeople

Well I finally did a card that is in the "Christmas Colours" The snowflakes are glittery although it doesn't show on the photo At least my OH was delighted with it Guess what sort of card he will be getting this year He has gone on enough about Christmas colours

A sort of Christmas Card

I am sure this card would be okay for Christmas but my other half doesn't think so Unless it has holly Santa and is red green and gold it isn't a Christmas card to him I don't agree I think a Christmas card can be any colour as most of mine this year are not traditional colours

For a very sweet lady

I have made this card for a young lady who when I was working with her adopted me as her MUM.She is a dear friend with two young children who has just been told she has breast cancer for the second time She thought after getting the all clear a year or so ago she was okay but this news is devastating as it is so much more advanced than the first one.I hope and pray that fate will smile on her and make her well I love her dearly

Its that cuttlebug again

This was the first Christmas card I made this year I seem to have strayed away from the conventional colours this year One of my first efforts with the Prisma pencils

Snow Lady, Nesties and Button

I bought this stamp on my summer holiday at a great craft shop in Exmouth called Japonica I think she is so cute and works well on this card. Least ways I hope so

Using a Blue Theme

Yet another card made with the Cuttlebug and Nestabilities and a lovely snowman image I think the blue theme worked well for this particular card

Ruby Wedding Card

I made this card for a friend It looks nothing like what I thought it would I did a layout of how I wanted it and boy did it look rubbish so back to the drawing board to do a rethink. Anyway my friend was delighted with the finished card so I got it right in the end

Modern Wedding card using Nestabilities

I love the layout of this card It turned out just the way I wanted it to
