Hello there, well I thought I would share with you a gift set I gave to one of the coffee morning mum's as a congratulations on the birth of her new baby girl, its a simple card made with hunky dory card and toppers, and a baby keepsake key ring with the babies name and some charms, it was very well received by the new mummy as well as the other coffee morning ladies.

Well as you can see I have failed in my mission to post more often, but in my defence it has been a very busy year, I have decided to start my own small business :-) and it is taking up a lot of my time, (as well as my beautiful sister in law, who is giving up her free time to help me ) but I'm nearly there, and it feels like I will have a website launch date soon.
I have also attended some craft events where I was lucky enough to have a stall, and I have 2 more lined up over the next 5 weeks, so making stock for them has been a big focus, fingers crossed they go well :-).
Anyway this is just a quick message for now as I should be sorting out photos for the website, I'll keep you posted on the website.
And in the style of Colombo, just one more thing.. with bonfire night just around the corner whatever you're doing, have fun but please remember to stay safe xx

These ATC's are for last months C.S.F, RS ATC swap, the theme was Black & Green, i used blue and yellow distress inks to create the green background, i then stamped a Le' Blanche foliage style stamp along one edge, and embellished it with a Marianne D bird on branch die cut, i cut it twice to be able to add the green elements and finished them by adding a faux gem for each of the eyes, and simple sentiments, which are different on each one.

Mo's Challenge - Celebrate

This is an 8" by 8" scalloped edge card made using one of Mo Mannings Fab digi stamps, if im not too late i will be entering it into this weeks challenge, the "Bite" image was coloured in using Crafters Companion, Spectrum Noir pens and embellished with Marianne D die cuts and the Vines embossing folder, the theme of this weeks challenge is Celebrate, so i thought this would be a good card for a teenage birthday.

This is a commissioned birthday card for my friends sister, its a 6" by 6" easel card made with one of the cute L.O.T.V images, i think this little girl is so sweet.

Steampunk anniversary

Hello everyone, well i thought i would finally have a play with my new Kanban Jasper stamps, and here is my first card, it has been done to celebrate a 30th wedding anniversary, i just LOVE these Steampunk stamps and think they will be used a lot!

Hi all, well September is flying past, i cant believe that tomorrow is the mid point of the month, i have been a busy crafter this month, i have had 2 orders for cards, one for 8 and the other for 10 as well as my own projects, here are 2 cards that were ordered, both are 7" by 10" and fun to make, although the Thomas card was difficult to finish, until i decided to put bunting accross the corner, which i thought finished it of nicely.
