Welcome to my crafty blog. It’s time for a new sketch challenge over at CAS Colours & Sketches, and I’m sharing my final contribution as a guest designer for the challenge. This month has gone so fast and it’s been such a great opportunity to be part of the CCAS team – huge thanks to… Read More fruit salad!
Welcome to my crafty blog. I’ve got something a bit different to share with you today – I don’t normally leave my stamped images in black and white but I’ve used the challenge over at Global Design Project where this week’s project is to CASE (copy and selectively edit) the card designed by Emma. Part… Read More sending birthday wishes
Welcome to my crafty blog. Today’s card uses the same background colours as I did yesterday – I really liked the blend of them together and thought they worked well for beach colours. I’ve worked with three current challenges to produce this card. I took the layout from Freshly Made Sketches, but rotated it as… Read More love you to the beach and back
Welcome to my crafty blog. It’s a bank holiday in the UK today, and for once the sun is shining brightly (most Brits will tell you it usually rains on a bank holiday!) My crafting buddy came round for lunch today and it was so lovely to be able to sit outside and eat. We… Read More balloon flight
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.

Welcome to my crafty blog. It’s Father’s Day next month (on 20th June), so I’ve started getting some cards made ready for sale. I’ve gone with Stampin’ Up!’s retired ‘glass half full’ set for this one – I think it works really well for masculine cards (although quite a few ladies I know are partial… Read More Father’s Day glass of wine
Welcome to my crafty blog. Today’s card is a bit of a blast from the past – on several levels! Obviously dinosaurs are prehistoric, but I’ve used a old retired set from Stampin’ Up!, ‘no bones about it’, and it took me right back to when my eldest son was small and was obsessed with… Read More slugs, snails & puppydog tails… and dinosaurs!
Welcome to my crafty blog. I’ve been struggling to work out how best to use the ‘hydrangea haven’ set from Stampin’ Up! and decided today was the day I’d get over it!

Welcome to my crafty blog. I decided to have another play with Stampin’ Up!’s ‘a touch of ink’ set – I just love this little hummingbird. I picked up the colours from CAS Colours & Sketches, which are right in the middle of my favourite palette. The style was inspired by this week’s themes of… Read More hummingbird birthday
