It’s Your Day!

Hello. Yesterday was my lovely friend Fiona’s birthday and I just had to make her a card using her favourite colour purple… It also gave me an excuse to use 2 new stamp sets that I bought in the recent Stampin’ Up! 24 hour sale; Around The Corner and Crackle Paint. I love a bargain. […]

Mosaic Mood sketch challenge

Hello. Today’s project is a card made for the weekly sketch challenge set by Patricia Smith in her Facebook Group “Crafting Stamping Club – Smiths Crafty Creations… I thought that the background sections were a bit like tiles and thought Mosaic Mood would be the perfect designer series paper to use. I hope you agree… […]

Happy Birthday in shades of blue

Crafting with friends

Hello and thanks for joining me. I love crafting with card, paper, ink, ribbon and other embellishments. However, it can be a solitary past-time so whenever I get the chance, I like to craft with others. And if you aren’t friends before you craft together there’s a pretty good chance that you’ll be friends afterwards! […]
