Thanks Mum

This is one of the cards that my mum made whilst she was here. She did a great job and, like me, she is now a fan of daubers too.

Hippo Birthday

I'm still having fun with Pun Fun and the button bouquet.

Tip: If you don't have the colour ribbon that you are after, cut a strip of card in the colour that you want, crumple it up an then flatten in out. This gives you colour and texture.

I just want to thank each of you who take the time to look at my blog. I hope that it inspires you to keep on creating.

I especially would like to thank those of you who put comments on my blog. I am a little computer illiterate (though I am better than I was) and therefore don't know how to post comments back, but I really appreciate those comment.

Thanks again.

Kind regards


Flight of the Butterfly

This is one of the cards that workshop guests will be making when they go to my workshops this month. Inspired by the I {Heart} Hearts card on page 6 of the current mini catalogue.

Remember that the current mini is only available until the end of this month. If there is anything that you are wanting to purchase please feel free to contact me.

Kind regards,

Butterfly Box

If you click on older posts down the bottom you will see the tutorial on how to make this simple but cute box.

I used my Crop-a-dile with the grid from the Mat Pack to dry emboss the dots.

Have a great weekend.

Surfs up dude!

I can't take credit for this card. My (nearly) 5 year old son made it with my mum when she was visiting. She saw several like this on Splitcoaststampers.
A simple bt affective card using the Pick-a-petal stamp set, Boho Flower punch for the sun and the ripping technique for the sand and sea.
Awesome work.
Ps. My mum had never stamped before she came to visit at Christmas!
