Hello there! A fairly quick card this evening, firmly back in my CAS comfort zone, using Stampin’ Up!’s ‘Eden’s garden’ set. I went with the colours from Global Design Project, which I thought would work with the ‘leaves’ theme from The Paper Players (I don’t have any scarecrows!) Now I’ve looked at The Paper Players’… Read More Eden’s greeting
Hello crafty friends and welcome to another card! I don’t very often used a coloured card base, but it’s good to push yourself from time to time, don’t you think?

Welcome to my crafty blog. I’m delighted to have been invited to be guest designer for the new TicTacToe challenge launching today! I decided to take the top row of butterfly, die cuts & sentiment for my card, although looking at the grid again the diagonal from top left also fits (butterfly, free & floral).… Read More TicTacToe guest designer!

Hello crafty friends. I decieded to have another play with the fab ‘farming fun’ set from Newton’s Nook, thanks to the challenge theme of ‘kards for kids’ over at The Paper Players (Congrats on the 600th edition to the team!).

I’m back with a second card today, as we’ve also got a new theme over at Sparkles Monthly Challenges. Claudia is hosting and wants to see our shaker cards.
