Welcome to my crafty blog and another Father’s Day card! My son has already bagged this one, as his dad a is fanatical amateur cricketer. It’s a bit of a mixture of products, but sometimes that can give you the best of all worlds! I started with the ‘cover drive’ die from Tattered Lace (that’s… Read More a cricket-mad dad
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!
Welcome to my crafty blog. I decided to CaSE (copy and selectively edit) a previous card I made with the Stampin’ Up! ‘arrange a wreath’ set – here’s my original Easter wreaths.

Welcome to my crafty blog. Today’s card is a very quick one, thanks to the challenge over at As You See It. It’s the first time I’ve done one of these – in addition to the theme, you have to make the card in less than 10 minutes! I picked up the colours from this… Read More cherry blossom
Welcome to my crafty blog. Today’s card really picks up the spring vibe – I think these flowers from Stampin’ Up!’s ‘A touch of ink’ set look like crocuses once they’re coloured yellow. I’ve managed to combine three blog challenges for today’s card – the layout is inspired by the sketch at The Paper Players,… Read More spring wishes
Welcome to my crafty blog. I’m a bit late with today’s post – it’s been a pretty full on day, but I’m now finally sat down with a coffee to write this. I’ve used the new ‘Friends are like seashells’ stamps & dies from Stampin’ Up for today’s offering. I wasn’t really sure how best… Read More friends are like seashells…
