Hello Everyone,

Today I have made a sympathy card for a very special friend of my Mum’s who lost her husband on the weekend.  These are never easy cards to make and always give me a bit of a challenge.  I wanted something with clean and simple lines and plenty of room inside to write a heartfelt message.  This is what I came up with

Butterfly Basics wmkd


Below I have placed the items used to make this card.  It is easy to make with the exception of a bit of fussy cutting of the flowers.

Thanks so much for stopping by…..don’t forget to leave me a comment, see you next time.

Stampin Up Mini Handbags

Hi Everyone,

Oh my goodness, I was absolutely gobsmacked when I saw these cute little bags, I just had to make some.  Well I made one, then two and then three and the bug got me.  They are so easy to make, and so much fun!  The combinations are endless with our range of Stampin Up Designer Series Paper.

Valentines Day

My share today with you is my second card to go with my Berry Basket for your special Valentines Day gift.  Using the left over “negative” from the hearts on the berry basket, I have added this, along with some gold glimmer to add a little texture.  This card is great to do as a class as it has a few interesting elements but still quick and easy to produce.  Hope you like it!

Sheltering Tree and itty bitty accent punch

The items used in this card are listed below for you.  If you would like to order any of these products, simply click on the item and it will take you directly to my online store and you can order them 24/7 and have them sent directly to your front door.

Stampin Up Berry Basket Valentines Day gift

Hi Everyone,

Today I had some fun playing around with the new Berry Basket die.  Such a versatile die and you can blend it to any occasion as a gorgeous little gift.  I just made a sweet heart design today, not to blingy, (though more to come lol).  I add the decorations with two or our great new punches.  It is a great project for a class, hope you like it.
