Mystery girl


I don't know where I got the girl cut out from (have a few of these), but thought it would go nicely on a piece of Laura Ashley paper (from long ago), with some lace, some flowers (like a cotton mesh), the Anna Griffin greeting square and a few pearls to finish the flowers.

For mum


This card was made with Hunkydory supplies, including the luscious dresses topper from one of their Little Books. Sorry that the photo is poor and the card has gone now, so I can't take another. The 'Mum@ at the bottom of the card was cut on Cricut (long ago!). Flowers from Hobbycraft, sentiment from Craftwork and padded heart from stash.

Happy birthday son


This is a simple card made to send to my brother from mum (she is now 96 with severe dementia, so can't do this for herself) last month. I stamped the music background using a large foam stamp bought years ago from QVC (when craft was high on their priorities). I added the washi tape from Paperchase and string down the side and the greetings.

Wedding day


This was a commissioned card for a weddingday. The background is a Papermania vellum, matted on to gold matt mirri card. The cut out shape (white with a hint of lemon) is from the centre of a 12 x 12 paper and the glittered wedding couple are from stash from long ago.

Pity that flash caught the edge of the sentiment banner and Clare's name- fine irl.

A day of nothing


Oh, wouldn't that be wonderful! A day of nothing. I got this paper for this 8 x 8 card from a Daphne's Diary and decorated it with the 3 D K & Co flowers and that lovely owl.

The text isn't very clear on the photo, so this is what it says:

I am taking today off
and doing things differently:
no dishes and no ironing,
no shopping list for me.
You won't find me in the itchen
or out moving the grass.
I won't be tidying up the mess
or polishing the brass.
Why don't you give it a go?
Just every now and then.
When you've tried it once I'm sure
You'll want to do it again.


Now I'll just sit and dream for a while - lol! Although I admit that I don't normally do everything on that list, but I do plenty of things that aren't on it - lol!
