Big News!

No I'm not pregnant! Big news is the name of the stamp set I have used to create this card. It has made it into the new catalogue after proving to be popular in the last occasions catalogue which I'm pleased about as if bought it but not got round to using it. I love the font on 'It's your birthday' - so fun and quirky; although the others in the set are less so. Take a look...



It's on page one hundred in the annual catalogue if you are interested.

Endless Birthday Wishes

I just love the Endless Birthday Wishes Stamp Set. It is so simple and cute and is going to get used over and over again I can just tell. I teamed it up with my all time favourite Gorgeous Grunge stamp set and the On Film Thinlet dies in Mint Macaron and Bermuda Bay. Voila! I love the end result so much I made six identical cards


Sorry about the poor photograph. The sun was actually streaming in through the window!

Build a Birthday

I thought I might have exhausted this stamp set but managed a couple of new cards yesterday ( well the second one was made by my friend Sue if I'm perfectly honest). The Cherry on Top Washi tape helps you mix and match with the stamps for a wider range of effects. Who knows I might even do a Christmas card with it sometime soon!

A whole lot of lovely

The hostess only set wouldn't normally be my cup of tea but I am quite pleased with results. 






I used my aqua painters to create the watercolor backgrounds - some worked better than others. 




Expressions Natural Elements

Just love these wooden sentiments. They add dimension and texture to the most simple of cards as demonstrated here. I have left them natural but they can be coloured, embossed, glittered; in fact there are no end of ways they can be altered to add interest to your projects!

There is nothing finer than a day crafting with friends and if there is something to show for it at then end then it's even better.

Today my friend Pauline and I made some cards. Here are two of mine:-
What do you think?



They just need a bit of bling to finish them off.
