Happy Easter!

Don't usually send cards at Easter (more interested in the chocolate eggs!) but I did make one for mum and dad and my sister (as well as the playleaders at youngest's playgroup!) This was made using Pink Petticoat "Spring Wishes" CD which was part of my prize when I was runner up in the National Cardmaker of the Year competition at the end of last year. Just added a cute bunny charm and some pearls and it was complete! Thanks for looking.

Bugaboo Stamps Gus

Love this range of digital stamps from Bugaboo Stamps - made this birthday card for my FIL's birthday. Still "dazed" at my Pollycraft DT news - look out for something very special next week over at Pollycraft. Thanks for looking!

Happy 60th Birthday!

I was asked to make a 60th birthday card for someone who loves Bingo. I was reaching the stage of desperation for a suitable image when I came across Bugaboo Digital Stamps ( There is a fantastic range of images and I will certainly be back! I did also check that the recipient had a sense of humour, lol!! Thanks for looking!

Pollycraft Monday Challenge #36 - Sparkle!

How could I resist a challenge that was about sparkle! This card is a bit of an experiment. I saw this idea used in a children's book where the coloured image is revealed as the side panel is pulled out. I'm quite pleased with the result! The roses and the heart have been glamoured dusted. Think I might give this to hubby for our anniversary later this year! Thanks for looking!

Pollycraft DT Call!

The very creative Paula at Pollycraft is looking for new DT members - it was too good an opportunity to miss! The only condition for submission was to use one of the Friday Freebie images. I chose the very cute "Duck with Cake", perfect for a spring birthday! The light here is not so great today so the picture is not quite showing the lovely spring colours.
With 2 DTs the Pollycraft Monday Challenge will become weekly, with each team taking turn week about. I would love to be considered to join the very talented DT!

New Baby Card

I was asked to create a new baby card recently and ended up making my first easel card! The gorgeous image is from Lili of the Valley and I also have the matching baby girl one! Really into my glitter dusted flowers at the minute. Thanks for looking!
