This card has been made for a friend of mine to pass to a friend of her's whom she is trying to teach to rock'n'roll. Fingers crossed she loves it.........................

Busy,busy,busy and loving it.

This was a challenge, a card for my brother's 60th birthday, he loves his rugby especially "worcester warrior's". I had great fun looking through match programmes for some piccies, I have also included a verse on the back.......... i'm chuffed I hope he will be too.

Busy,busy,busy and loving it.

Not posted for a while, have been very busy with lots of orders, I think the sunshine has got everyone geared up, I have had such fun making these cards, just hope the recipients enjoy them as much as me.The floral cards are using a selection from Sue Smith's Kameo cards collection, and the card for my wonderful Nan aged 94 and yep she really is one in a million, this was using the new CD ROM from Hall mark's Forever friends collection.

This collection of lovely ladies have been made using Kanban toppers and the Kanban verona style cards.
I have cut the verona cards and mounted them on to a plain white card this means I can get double the cards from the kit..........I'm all for thrifty crafting............

Chimney breast Shape card

I have made this card after seeing it in a shop and thinking I could create that shape. I have used one A4 piece and one A5 piece of card to make the base card.
Take the first piece of A4 card and score it at DLon both sides, or at 10cm and 20cm, fold the score lines away from you on both sides.Then score and fold the left and right side sections at 5 cms. These folds should be made in the opposite direction to create the basic shape.Take the second piece of card and score it in half. Then stick the two smaller pieces to the flaps on the A4 piece. Lay the card flat and score a line 8cm from the top on the back flap upto the top of the front of the card.Alternativley you could use a cirlce shape to make the top into an arch shape. Then decorate with your chosen theme and craft materials.
