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

Well,  I finally finished my box of Christmas cards at 1.30 this morning!  I had an appointment for my nails with the wonderful Sharon and left my box in her log cabin, with fingers crossed for any possible sales!  Here is the final batch!

Hubby's birthday tomorrow!

Not like me to be leaving things to the last minute (again!) - I have just finished hubby's card - although, to be fair, I have been creating with the children to make their cards to Daddy! Annoyingly, in my haste to get them in the envelope, I forgot to take piccies! So, I'll snap them when they are opened in the morning. I have, however, taken a piccie of mine - and I'm quite glad it won't be up next to Jess's creation, cos it's amazing!

Christmas - at last!

Think this will be the style of Christmas card for my sales!  Best get on with it really!!  WOuld appreciate any thoughts - not my usual style at all, but needed something quick if I'm going to be churning them out - lol!

A special card for a special friend

My beautiful friend Katy had her baby boy, so wanted to make this card a really special one.  I persevered with the ribbon which I was having trouble with but now I love it (thanks to Kerry for her advice - she makes stunning cards which always inspire me).  I love this font which is called Mountains of Christmas.  The image is Bambino.  I have also used Gingham blue card over Silver glitter card, silver Angel Hair for behind the image and baby details and then a teddy charm.  New Prima flowers from Joanna Sheen, and Card Candi from stash.  I love this card - I'm so pleased with it!

Mum & Pete's Anniversary

I had some lovely news last night - my friend had her baby boy!  So I have a special card to make - some of which I did last night, just need to add the details - so exciting!

In the meantime, here's my mum and stepdad's easel card to celebrate their silver wedding anniversary.  Another one I found hiding on the camera card!

Had probs yesterday!

...So my yesterday post actually appeared today!  Another busy birthday day for Tom - this time a surprise birthday treat with Nanna - a trip to Hanningfield Resevoir to get messy in the woods - den building, bug hunting, making a mushroom from clay and glitter paint, feeding the ducks - great fun!

Still can't upload to dc :(

So here I am, on my ickle blog!  It's Tom's birthday today and I can't believe he's 6 already!  If you read my profile, you'll know that it was him who bought me my first cardmaking magazine at his 1st Christmas!  Had his party this afternoon, and everyone said how tall and handsome he is - proud mummy moment!

Anyhoo - here's his card - he's recently taken up drum lessons and saw this image by the fab Digi Stamp Boutique which I fell in love with and knew just where to use it!

Thanks for stopping by
