Well Written Happy Birthday

Hello. Today I want to share with you the card I made for my husband’s recent birthday. He’s not a man for a lot of fuss so I kept it clean and simple. As my old favourite Happy Birthday die has retired I used the Well Written dies instead… I used the new 2019-2021 In […]

Happy Birthday with party hats

Crafting with friends

Hello and thanks for joining me. I love crafting with card, paper, ink, ribbon and other embellishments.

2018-2020 In Colors Birthday card

Hello! Thanks for joining me today. I love the vibrant 2018-2020 In Colors and decided that I wanted to make a super bright Birthday Card using them. Although I opted to exclude Lovely Lipstick so the card may be a bit more suitable for a boy. I also decided to use 2 stamp sets that […]

Let’s eat birthday cake!

Hello and thanks for joining me. Today I’d like to share a card with you that I’ve had in mind for ages and eventually got round to making…. When I first saw the “Life’s too short to say not to cake” stamp in the Amazing Life stamp set in the Spring/Summer 2019 catalogue, I knew […]

Happy Birthday Blooms

Hello & thank you for joining me today. As promised in yesterday’s blog, here’s the card I made for my friend that received the box I shared with you yesterday… My card base is my usual 29 x 10.5 cm, scored and folded on the long side at 14.5 cm to create a portrait tent […]
