Non-Cutesy Wedding Card

A lot of my card designs tend to be a bit 'cutesy', so I always struggle when it comes to simple elegant non stamped images to colour in type cards.

I have been asked for a wedding card that is champagne & mint green with 'On Your Wedding Day', champagne flutes and the couples name and date somewhere on the card.

It was a challenge and took me 3 days to achieve. I can't tell you how many times the layout and card blank type changed! 

So here it is...

I will be definitely storing this one in my photo archives for future reference! Maybe the next time I get this kind of request, it will only take an hour to make!!!!

Birthday Bamboo

I've been having a play with one of the Kanban sets today and decided I would use Birthday Bamboo to make a lovely little easel card for tomorrows coffee morning

So very sweet

I've been so so busy....

Hi All,

I hope everyone is well. I haven't had much of a chance to blog lately as there seem to have been 101 other jobs that needed to be done!

So what's been happening......

Well, June's sketch challenge has launched and I have 5 entries already! Here is the sketch and the designs so far:


I've been really naughty and have been buying loads of new goodies for the shop (some of which may accidentally 'fall' into my own craft stash!!)

My latest purchases have been from the Hobby House. They have some fantastic toppers, gems and charms, so now I'm on with the task of uploading everything to the website.....(the not so exciting part of having a craft shop!)

But I'm still finding the time to create cards for friends and family. The most recents are:
A cheeky Charlie
 and Superhero Harvey

Back to the website I go.

Happy Crafting
