Christmas 2014

Christmas 2014

I do like to keep a record of my Christmas Card making each year and this blog is a great way to showcase them and let me see how I’ve changed over the years. To make things a little different this year I’ve put the cards in collage format. You’ll need to click on the thumbnails to...

Xmas 2013

Xmas 2013

I am so sorry – I haven’t done a blog post for ages! There’s been a lot of turmoil recently and a family bereavement after a painful illness – it’s rather taken over everybody’s lives. Anyhow , I’m back with a vengeance – all my Christmas cards are finished, including... 

B&W Wedding Card

B&W Wedding Card

So, I came downstairs one morning to find a note from my son….”Would you be able to make a card for the wedding please?”….the wedding was the following afternoon! Kids eh He said that it ‘didn’t have to be mega’ but I disagreed – can’t let any card... 

Card in a box

Card in a box

Another one of my sisters turned 60 this year so I made her a special card-in-a-box to mark the occasion. It started out as a patterned tin box which held chipboard shapes – it was silver coloured on the base but a garish blue/orange/green/yellow hotch-potch on the top. The first step, therefore,... 

Wedding Card

Wedding Card

Wow, two in one month….like buses, I haven’t made one for years and then two weddings come along together. This was made for my Stamp Club teacher, Gloria – she married her long-time partner Bob last week and I suspect she will have had more hand-made cards than anyone else I know! I...

Queen of Hearts #4

MS Sketch 51

MS Sketch 51

The sketch challenge for February (as shown below) is very inspirational and this is my take on it. I am also using it for the February challenge at Stamp Club which involves a card using a daffodil stamp. I chose a large 8″x8″ card base – my current favourite size – to give me plenty...

Yikes! It’s been ages

Yikes! It’s been ages

It was mid-September when I last posted – personal stuff has been getting in the way of blogging but…..I have still been creating Michael Strong challenged his followers to create a card to celebrate his Grand-daughter’s birthday so I used the occasion to make one for my Grand-daughter... 

70th Birthday Commission

70th Birthday Commission

I was asked to make a 70th card for a lady – the brief…..pink and girly! It was to be handed to the lady rather than posted which meant I could pile all sorts of embellishments on top and not worry too much about making a box for mailing it :). The main focal image is from the freebie set from...
