I was asked if I could make a wedding card for a couple getting married in Holy Island. I had seen this design on Pinterest where the images were flower prints and I thought it would look great with some black and white images of Holy Island in Northumberland. I found some great pictures on the internet which captured the beauty of Holy Island.
I love this card, I love the simplicity of it that makes it classically beautiful.

I made this card for my boss who just loves his coffee.

After learning a friends little girl was besotted with Minnie Mouse after a recent trip to Disneyland Paris, the theme for her card was a bit of a no-brainer.
She was over the moon with her card and just as excited to receive her first letter from the postman. Feels great to make a little girl very happy on her birthday.

One of my first orders when I set up this Facebook page was for 20 Wedding Thank You Cards. The spec was Ivory and Purple colours and butterflies. I must admit I was quite nervous making something which was so important and wanted it to be as perfect as I could possibly make it, I was worried my cards wouldn’t be good enough. After quite a few trips to Hobbycraft, The Range and Boyes trying to match purple card with purple ribbon and an ever increasing array of “not quite rights”, I finally got something that was pretty much spot on and had to deal with the fact that I was never going to get it absolutely perfectly matched. Then I set to work making the cards. And I was absolutely over the moon with how they turned out. Although not part of the spec I also decided to make a special little box to hold the cards – however, the box did get a bit damaged in transit, the cards inside arrived safe and sound. Feedback was fantastic which I was very relieved at and also very happy with. A very special touch to finish off that very special occasion.
I wasn’t able to post before now as they have just been received by the wedding guests.

I saw an explosion card in an edition of Creativity magazine and decided to make it earlier in the year for my brother’s 40th birthday.
Since then I have made quite a few explosion cards and everybody seems to love them.
Here’s my latest makes:-
Been very busy making cards, cards, and more cards. And a bit of crochet now and again.
Here’s another selection of my handy work. Can’t believe I’ve only been doing this since the New Year – feel like I’ve done so much and learnt so much. My creations have come on in leaps and bounds – when I look back at my first makes I can’t believe how basic they look.
I thought I’d share with you a few more of my recent card makes that I made for a friend’s daughters birthday.
Firstly I made a mobile phone card from her niece. She loves her technology and I spied a similar one on Pinterest. A really quick and easy make which can be totally personalised in favourite colours, name, age and whatever messages suit. Loved the end result.
Also on the order list was a sister card. As the young lady in question likes ice skating I liked this idea of using a snow globe shape. I used acetate to make a circle for the centre of the card and stuck a printed picture to it. To get the snow flakes I just used silver glitter glue. A bit fiddly in parts but it was worth it.
I saw this card in the Creativity magazine and used the free papers that came with the magazine.
I saw this card online and as my friend’s daughter is a bit of a shop-a-holic, I really wanted to give it a go. I love this card and I will definitely be making more in the future – again it’s one of those cards which can be customised to suit the recipients favourite colours.
