Trusty Teal Dragonfly


I have been doing some quick cards recently and I fancied doing something a little more involved.  So I reached for a selection of my favourite stamps and collage stamped a background.  Not surprising I reached for my trusty teal inkpad.



The crochet lace is a length I had made previously and I also found the perfect beaded dragonfly to hang in the aperture.



Thanks for visiting me in blogland.

Take care.


Mum’s Birthday Card

It was my Mum’s Birthday recently and this was her card.


My Mum, like me, loves scrapbooking and I have come to learn that anything she receives will rapidly be taken apart and will ultimately appear in a scrapbook soon.  With this in mind, I decided to make her card made up of lots of little elements.


I love to make ATCs so this was wonderfully fun to do.  I started by cutting lots of small rectangles out of coordinating shades of pink from my scrap box.  I then went about decorating them in as many different techniques as I could, including Shrink Plastic, stamping, die cutting, clay, embossing, wire & beading work and ribbon.



My little boy turned 9 years old.

I would also like to share a card I made for my little boy.  He loves Star Wars and he loves Angry Birds!

This is a totally over-the-top card, measuring A3 in size, which is destined to be framed and go on his wall…but he loved it!



All for now.
