I caved in recently and bought the much sort after Fifth Avenue Floral stamp set.  This is my first attempt at using it.  I have seen so many lovely designs but thought I’d keep this one simple and come up with my own. I have used Pink Pirouette cardstock for the base and also the […]

Ears to you


“Ears” the last card in my ‘made to order’ range.  This one was by far the easiest.  There were absolutely no requirements other than for it to be a birthday card.  I just got the Animal Crackers stamp set and has to use my favourite image.  This bunny is so cute and he’s saying “Ears […]

Birthday Blues


Birthday Blues is a good thing in the case of this card.  I needed to come up with a birthday card for someone who has the favourite colour of blue.  I took a previous card I’ve made and turned it into this. I’ve used Not Quite Navy and Baja Breeze card with Urban Garden designer […]

This is the next “commissioned” card that I have to show you.  This one is for an engagement and the recipient of this card likes magnolias so I chose to use my Embrace Life stamp set.  I love magnolias too so this card was a bit easier for me than the last one. The magnolias […]

Country Chick


I am really stepping out of my comfort zone here.  I have been asked to make a few cards with specific interests in mind.  This is the first one.  The criteria for this one was that it needed to be for a birthday and the recipient likes the ‘Country Style’ and the colour maroon.  I […]

I’ve put aside my stamps for a day and made these cute little bunnies instead. Our church had an activity for children aged up to 12 and had a “store” where they could buy items with the reward “money” they had collected for being good during church.  Each of the parents were asked to donate […]

I’ve decided, due to popular demand, that I will now be selling all of the items that I display on my blog.  This means that whatever you see here on my blog you can buy! As a general rule all cards will be $4 and will include a matching envelope.  I haven’t worked out postage […]

I hope you’re not getting sick of my ‘copying lately but there are just so many fabulous cards out there which means I don’t have to think.  This is another from Sarah at Janeybell.  I’ve made a few adjustments and I love how it has turned out.  I loved Sarah’s but I think I love […]

I love the Trendy Trees stamp set but must admit that I was a little stumped (no pun intended) as to how to use it for different occasions and genders.  But there are so many different resources available to get inspiration from.  I got my inspiration from Sarah at Janeybell.  Actually, I pretty nearly copied these […]

Well after seeing Sarah’s post for Makeesha’s Inspiration Challenge I was inspired to give it a go.  I actually love white stamped images and this inspiration challenge is the perfect excuse to use whisper white ink. This is the inspiration picture for Makeesha Byl and here is my card As soon as I saw the inspiration […]
