Kind Words

I made this card, which could be used for any occasion, using the text stamp as the main feature.  I think the sentiment is just lovely.

Happy retirement

A colleague is retiring tis weekend so I made this card for her.  I used a sheet of dark purple cardstock to make an A5 Portrait card and then I tore a strip of vellum and attached using a tape runner.  The topper is one from a Kanban set I got from QVC.  I added a handwritten sentiment and a papermania flower which I chalked the edges in purple.

Sketch Challenge

I made these cards following the docrafts sketch challenge and then waited too long to enter.  Must try harder!!!  I found the sketch easy to follow and liked the results.

Just Outside Broughshane

I spent the morning with my sister and her 2 children in their new house.  The views from her front window are just beautiful.  The kids love it too as she has a duck pond and some goats just out her front door.  Its a beauifully quiet place.

Birthday Flowers

I love the colours of this card.  Looking forward to spring even though the weather outside is awful.  I haven't made very many cards this week as I've been busy at work but I'm off tomorrow so maybe I'll give the housework a miss and make a few cards instead

More bad weather

More rubbish weather today so I used it as another excuse to make some more cards.  It was too wet and windy to do anything else.

I was in a bit of a purple mood.

Busy Day

I had a good day today.  The weather was rubbish so I sat at my kitchen table and played with my paper and ribbon.  I printed some images and paper from My Craft Studio The Collectors Edition and then just saw what happened.

Feeling Christmassy!

It must be the bad weather but I was really in the mood to make Christmas Cards!  How strange is that.  I usually start in July and hubby thinks I've gone mad - maybe I'll not tell him that I've started already this year.  I'll just feel quietly smug and organised for a change
