Valentines Cards: i’ve been in love many times


Hello Again,

Well i thought i should really make some Valentines Cards! So here they are. They use the Sketch  SC421 from Spilt Coast Stampers ( Oh How love that site!)

The papers are by Kate Knight (totally tropical) and the embellishments We are memory Keepers (Which i have had for a while!)


And Here is a close up of the sentiment


And here is Card number two


Hope this inspires you to give the card sketch a go!

See you soon


Highlighter Pen and Distress ink part 2


Hello Again!

This is another project from our craft evening! I love the highlighter pen technique so I made another card! I went for a masculine card this time.

I used stamps from papermania (Portobello Road) and Hampton arts (Boys) and some union flag ribbon!

Lets us know what you think.



Highlighter pens and Distress Ink!


Hello All,

So once again i owe my latest challenge to ‘Craft Stamper’ magazine. (August 2012 Issue)

This technique uses Highlighter pens and Distress ink to create a great back ground.

And here is my finished creation. I have to say that i love this card and technique.



So come on fellow crafters get out those highlighters and have a go!

My colour challenge.


Hello all,

Well i live a very sad life and brought myself some new tea towels! (oh go me!) Well i loved the colours and they inspired me to create a card.

Here is the inspiration:

And here is the finished card

A used a creamy/yellow card blank for this project. I made the felt bird and it can be detached and used as a brooch! (i think they are very cute!)

I would love for you to join in so why not pop over to and join in the challenge.

See you all soon.
