Love & Marriage

I had to wip up this card in double time this afternoon! I used my Spellbinders Wizard to cut everything. It certainly saved a lot of time.

I am entering this card for the Pollycraft Monday Challenge - Love and Marriage

Home is where you park it!

Just a quick card for a challenge over at Create with TLC. I had to create something with the sentiment 'Home is where you PARK IT'.

I'm thinking about a BBQ on the beach, watching the sunset, then later sleeping on a mattress in the back...

The image is a combination of palm trees from Arthur's Free Clipart and a freebie from Birds Cards. I think it turned out quite well!

Smiles for Bella

This is the card that I will be sending to a brave little girl called Bella Tucker. Bella lost all her limbs after surviving a near fatal infection. You can read all about her and find out how you can help on her website

Something new that I tried and a few more creations

Hi there,

I tried to make a spring fold card this weekend and this is how it ended up. I quite like the different shape and the added dimensions of the card. I found the tutorial for the card at Slitcoaststampers here. It was really easy! Not so easy was trying to take a photo. :) The medallion was a freebie sheet from Fred, She said Designs.

I entered a few challenges over at Crafters Digital Art Centre on Sunday. If you haven't joined, I can really recommend that you do! There are plenty of free digi stamps on offer and really friendly people.

Anyway, here are my creations:

This was my entry for the colour challenge - you guessed it - Yellow! This is such a happy card that I think that I will send it to a brave little girl called Bella. If you want to know more about Bella, here is a link to her website, Bella

And this was my entry for a Whimsy birthday card. From the comments I have had I think I should have looked for a challenge about bows! The bow was recycled off a gift. I wish I had more!

Thanks for stopping by,

So here I am

I finally did it! I created my own blog. The main purpose will be to share images of my crafty output. Mostly cards but also the odd 3D object if I feel up to the challenge.

Just to get started, here are a couple of cards that I made recently.

The digital stamp I used here is a freebie from Sugar Creek Hollow over at Crafters Digital Art Centre. The flowers are from Fred she said designs.

This little beauty was drawn by Sliekje. And more flowers from Fred she said.

This is an anniversary card that I made for friends. I tried out an old technique which is new for me - papercutting. I found the design on the site here.

I'm a newbie so please be kind with your comments.
