Gorgeous girl

Today is my baby girls’ 10th birthday.  I shred hre card a few weeks ago but am posting this one today made with a MO Manning image that reminds me of her; my daughter always seems to have her head in a book!  I think red and blue is my favourite colour combination on cards.


I’ll be entering these challenges today:

My firstborn is 14!

Wishing a very happy birthday to my clever, hansome, kind firstborn son.


This is one of the cards I have made for him using a Mo Manning digistamp. I have used age numbers from Kanban, a self printed sentiment and 2 leaves from the little book of sentiments for men from Hunkydory.  They have been layered at rightangles behind the coloured image and placed onto a gignhambackground.

My 2014 top 15

Thank you for following my blog this year and allowing me to share my creations.  I am planning to make fewer cards next year and concentrate on more sewing projects…well, we’ll see.

I have made approxiamately 200 cards this year and you can imagine how tricky it is to narrow it down to a few favourites, but here goes!  (In no particular order.)

The papers are from American crafts and the digi from Kenny K.

But this is a very close second!  Made entirely using a Polkadoodles CD, I did a lot of fussy cutting to make this circular card.


Wishing you all a happy and blessed new year.

Christmas stocking

I have used a Mo Manning image to make today’s card.  It is called Timmy’s Stocking  and is available in girl images and afro-caribean styling too.  I have coloured the image using Promarkers and have mounted the image simply with papers and a sentiment free in  magazine this month.  I hav added a bit of sparkle with Debbi Moore extra fine chameleon glitter on each tree bauble.
