Thank you for visiting my blog. I make Handcrafted cards to order, adding that personal touch in an otherwise impersonal world.

My basket is ready.... I just need to make some cards to fill it!  As you may know, I have the opportunity to display my cards in my friend's nail salon (log cabin) so have been looking for a pretty box to put them in.  I bought the basket with the intention of making a liner for it.  However, I found these stunning butterflies as part of a new christmas display at the garden centre and thought they would be perfect!  I have my own stamp design on the lid and the butterflies to embellish it.

Hope you like it

Well, it's finished!

After umming and arring for ages about how to put this card together, I finally got it!  I was asked for a not scary Hallowe''en themed card for my friend's son - hope that's what it says!

I used a digi image from'I Brake for Stamps' - Bear in Pumpkin can be found here, orange paper from Carole Anne designs digi download, charm from Quixotic Paperie and sentiment from Cuddly Buddly.  Card Candi, black card and ribbon from my stash.

What a busy day!

Went for a pamper to have my nails done this morning and did a bit of shopping - looking for a new bed for Jess, clothes for Tom, then started to make a card for a friend for her son's birthday.  It's on Hallowe'en so she wants a themed card but he's only 1 so to not be too scary!  I have an image, and papers so just need to get making!  Watch this space.....

For Phil's Dad from the children

For Tom's friend - Tom did the colouring!

Exciting news!

I go to a lovely lady to have my nails done and we were chatting over a manicure, as you do, and she offered to have a basket of my cards in her log cabin to sell for me!  Blimey, oh riley!  So exciting - although now I've got to get some made - lol!  I usually only make cards to order and have very specific instructions like occasion, colour scheme, name etc., so this might be quite tricky, but I'm determined to give it a go!  With half term only a couple of weeks away, I'm hoping I might get some time to get crafty!

Doesn't time fly?!

Well, the weeks are flying by!  Well and truly settled back into school and I don't where the days are going!  Not having much time to craft but seem to work best under pressure so am making cards the night before they're needed - so here are my latest "night before they're needed" cards!
