Cutie Card

This lovely image was kindly sent to me by Pauline ( and as I need to get a few cards in stock, I decided to get cracking. Hope you like it.

Need to go and put my feet up for a while now. I've been at the Hobbycrafts show at the NEC and not only are my feet aching,but I need to go and play with some of the stash and just had to have ...... I'll post my results over the weekend - hopefully

'Ole Blue Eyes ..........

I made this card for my fab dad's birthday a couple of weeks ago. Yes, he was 21 again ......... I know, I know I don't need to tell you how young he is - you only have to look at me to know that!!

The backing cardstock is that lovely coloured core card that I have put through the Cuttlebug and then sanded the top off. I really do love this decoupaged image and thought it was really fitting for dad's birthday and he said he loved it. (Actually he might have been talking about the cake he was holding at the time .......)

Friday Sketchers 42

My sister asked me for 30th birthday card for her friend so I thought I would use the Friday Sketchers callenge for some inspiration.

The image is by Papernation (now known as Jolly Nation) and was coloured with watercolour pencils and Sakura pens with the bit of added glitter and glssy accents on the wine glass. The scroll and the numbers are from my trustly Cuttlebug. The lovely backing papers are by Craftwork Cards.

New Blog on the Spot!!

My gorgeous niece, Abbie, is a very talented young crafter and always surprises me and the whole of the family with her wonderful cards and never ceases to amaze me with her ideas.

She has been to the last couple of craft shows with me and is getting quite a little set up of crafting stash in her bedroom. She made the above card for my birthday last week and has been asking me for ages to set up a blog for her.

Well, we have finally managed to find time to start her blog for her tonight and I'm sure she would love you to visit and leave your comments for her. Click on
and take a peek.
