Welcome to my crafty blog and a card that is again virtually all die cutting with only a little bit of stamping. I do love Julie Hickey’s Alphabet letter dies, but have never used them before as the central focus of a card. I thought they would work well, though, for the current sketch over… Read More it’s your birthday
Welcome to my crafty blog. I’m sitting here watching tennis at Wimbledon, so had to go wiht strawberries for this card! I also took inspiration from a couple of challenges with the layout from Freshly Made Sketches.

Welcome to my crafty blog. I’ve been making a few more Father’s Day cards, which I’ll be sharing over the next few days, starting with this one using Stampin’ Up’s ‘Whiskey Business’ set. I bought this last year as it was perfect for a card I was asked to make, and it’s been carried over… Read More it’s a whiskey business!

Let’s… Read More more masking!
