A Little Bird Told Me.....

Hello all, I hope you are all well, it's been a lovely few days here in Southend, but unfortunately not really been able to take advantage due to a blooming migraine.  Anyhow I thought I would share with you a card I made for my buddy Leigh Jones aka Charity Crafter, it's her birthday today. Happy birthday Leigh x. I've used a cute stamp from Penny Blacks' Slapstick range, I do like these stamps. Also a big thank you to Teresa (craftingallday) I hope she doesn't mind me getting inspiration from her doily layout.

Less is More Week 6

Hello friends, just a quick post from me as I'm in the middle of a card order. I've promised to make some cards for a friend. So this is a quick card for the Less is More challenge week 6. I must admit the card looks very simple, but it's been one of the hardest cards I've made. This is so out of my comfort zone! The hardest bit was finding an image suitable. Well anyway this is my attempt, I've used a 6x6 card blank, Kanban and Personal Impression stamps, Tim Holtz distress ink pad in aged mahogany. I hope you think it's ok, Chrissie and Mandi sure know how to get the little grey cells going!

Thanks for looking and have a good weekend.

BBQ Time!

Evening all, it's a late posting for me, I've spent all week trying to come up with a card for a friend who is 60 this week. The reason it's been a struggle is because it's not girly and pretty. It's a card for a man! Gosh they are so hard to do.

I'm also entering this card into a few challenges that I've come across this evening. So here's the card and I hope you all like it!

I hope everyone is having a good day. I'm having a day off today and I'm making cards woo hoo. I've made a card for the Less is More challenge week 5 which the theme is pastels. I'm uploading my card early this week as I didn't realise that there is a closing time. Silly me for not reading the rules. Anyway here is my card.

Less is More Week 4

Hello, apologies for not being about much this week, it's been a busy week at work and I get up so early in the mornings I've been so tired at night. I have managed to make this card for the 'Less is More' challenge week 4 threes squares. I've decided to use a 5x7 inch which makes a change from a square.
