I LOVE Valentines…….

Pin It

Hello everyone

I have been very busy making Valentine’s card this week and weekend and now got a couple to share with you – the rest will be on my Facebook account, so please visit if you have a moment.

So here is the first one

A cute little owl which comes pre-coloured from Digistamp Boutique and therefore makes this one a quick and easy!  The hearts and die cut has a hint of colour but a little hard to see in this photo.  I have used my liquid pearls to highlight and really love the effect on the hearts, so guess you will be seeing that again!


Items used on this card were:
Card/paper stock: 6x6
white card base, Red Bazzill card, Hearts paper from a lovely LOVE pack but cant seem to find the front page
Digi stamp boutique - pre coloured and with sentiment 
Embellishments: Doodlebug twine, liquid pearls and clear gloss
Tools used:
Sizzix Eclips for hearts and cut scallop edge

The next card is my favourite Smile

I TOTALLY love my Sizzix Eclips machine.  I have used it some much but when it helps me created this effect I LOVE it even more.  This template was adapted from the lovely Bird’s Cards but I did change it as I just wanted the hearts.  Bird makes amazing templates for us Eclips users, and has also inspired me in so many of my projects with her skills!


Items used on this card were:
Card/paper stock: 6x6
Kraft card base, Red card, small heart snippets
Sentiment: computer generated

Embellishments: red pearls

Tools used:
Sizzix Eclips for hearts and tag

Thank you for popping over to see my cards today, I have some lovely birthday cards to blog this week too, so hope to see you pop back again!

Congratulations Chris

Just a little card for a lovely gent in our team who got him self a promotion just before Christmas, well deserved and he will be amazing in the new role.

My card is a biggie for me 8 x 8 inch, but quite simple.

The champagne bottle and glasses are from a forever friends DVD and the background was a freebie from the internet.

Thank you for looking

Thank you for our lovely Christmas Pennies

Hi all

I spent today making a couple of little thank you cards for my parents in law and John’s Nanna and Grandpa as they have given us cash for Christmas, so always like to do a thank you.

I was playing with my CraftArtist, so thought I would have a go at some digital cards – what do you think?  I found that lovely rose in a digi kit but it was green! However my wonderful CraftArtist can soon change that!  A few gems and a little matting, and done.


Here is the second one


Be back soon

Goodbye 2012…… Happy New Year 2013

Pin It
New Year
Is anyone still out there?
It me the worst blogger of 2012……..  I really can’t believe that I was so poor last year in keeping my blog updated, I have 101 excuses, but at the end of the day I was just CR*P!
So January 2013 – lets see how we go
I have loads of cards ready to blog, so need to get myself sorted and even if I just set the goal of 1 a week, and then any more is a bonus! lol
I have been keeping up with all your blogs, as I have been using Google Reader, which allows me to view your latest posts, but what I also need to ensure I do is start leaving you a message, as your daily posts do make me smile, so I will ensure that I start to tell you that also.
I have also been busy with Facebook this week, and set up a business page for my cards, to start to hopefully sell a few more this year.
So here is to wishing you a fantastic 2013, and leaving you with a few of my favourite cards this year.
