Just wanted to say...


I followed another great sketch over at
Try Stampin' on Tuesday.
Loved the layout and it worked perfectly for another card
for my second wallet fill.

I was very good again and finished the insides off.

Bitter cold here again!
Poor Squirt had a job getting across the decking this morning.
He honestly looked like Bambi lol but
he made it in the end!
I, on the other hand, nearly pulled the railings
down trying to keep on my two feet!!
Have a lovely weekend.

Labour of love!


I had a request from a customer for a funfold card for a
70th birthday.
So I decided to make an a5 version of this.
Nearly blew my brain trying to work out the cuts and folds lol
but I got there in the end.


This is the back, with lots of space for a long verse.

and a bit of shopping. Always get excited when we get
time together!!
Enjoy your day.

Blue and green


Wendy has set the challenge for us at
and she wants to see us use blue and green.

Perfect colours for me as they are used together in
these papers (retired).
I put together the tag base using white card and my dsp.
I added a middle border in the green then
punched a postage stamp rectangle in green, then white
and did my stamped leaves and sentiment.
I added some handcut flowers and finished with some ribbon.

I hope you get time to join us this fortnight.

Monday celebrations!


Happy Monday!
I have the final card today for my mini wallet.
Again I have used the matching papers but this time
went with some stamped flowers and leaves.

I have followed a lovely sketch over at 
Try Stampin' on Tuesday.
In the background I have used a cloud embossing folder.


I was very good and finished off the insides too!

Today is my eldest son's birthday. He is 42 today and I am feeling old!
His poor wife was taken to hospital yesterday, having been
up all night with stomach pains and vomiting.
Fingers crossed she will get sorted and hopefully
not have a long wait in A & E.
Back home again with some medication to day but none the wiser
as to what is wrong! Needs to go to her own doctor now.

Happy Birthday Blooms



I have another card made for one of my gift wallets.
Today I followed the lovely sketch at
Try Stampin' on Tuesday.

I added some dry embossing to either side of my panel
and the papers are the retired ones from December.
I finished off the inside too with a strip of matching
paper and sentiment.

Still sooooo cold here. Woke up at 8am to -7 degrees!
Seriously did not want to get out of my warm bed!
Have a lovely weekend everyone.
