Hello everyone. It seems appropriate to use the beautiful Peaceful Poppies designer series paper for my card today, the 75th anniversary of VE Day. Poppies are a symbol of Remembrance and very appropriate for a card to thank everyone that sacrificed so much for our peace. My card is just a very small gesture of […]

Magnolia Lane Thank You

Hello everyone. I don’t normally do ‘fancy fold’ cards but with a bit more time on my hands I’ve been trying to step out of my crafting comfort zone a bit more. Here’s today’s card… It’s not too much of a fancy fold but makes a change from a solid card front doesn’t it? I […]

Stampin’ For All sketch challenge – Friend-a-saurus

Hello. I have been busy making things for my craft fair next week and had been using some of the bright and fun Dinoroar designer series paper but had a few off-cuts left. As I don’t like to waste any of my lovely Stampin’ Up! products, I chose to use up some by making cards […]
