Sunflowers and Lillies in Yellow


Today’s card is similar to a journal page I did recently, which I thought would translate nicely into a card, so I had a play.


I stamped the image to form a circle and coloured using alcohol markers.


To make it a card I added a large lily die-cut in the centre, which I added detail with alcohol markers.



I hope you like it.

Thanks for visiting.


A quick Thank You card


I always make a point of making my children send their “Thank You” cards after Christmas and Birthdays as I think it is a nice thing to do and is so often overlooked these days. I remember when I was a child and it was almost obligatory to write a note but now I don’t seem to receive “Thank You” notes which saddens me, so I always nag until it is done.

Here is one card I made for my Auntie all ready for my boys to write in.


A simple card but one that I know will be appreciated.



That’s all for now.


Happy Birthday Mum!


I have a card to share today which I made for my Mums Birthday.  Here it is…


I used a lovely little butterfly stamp from Chocolate Baroque together with my very own floral stamp designs which I drew awhile ago.


I started in my usual style with a piece of white card and added chalks in shades of pink, orange and yellow quite randomly.

Using a versamark inkpad I stamped my floral designs quite randomly and added the same shades of chalk over the top.


I then filled in the gaps by stamping again with versamark but this time adding white embossing powder and heating.  (This could have been done of course at the start and acted like a resist but I didn’t quite know where I was going at the start and I just let the card evolve…often makes the best cards I think).

Finally I added a sentiment stamped in the same way and a few little flower dies.

I hope you like it.
