I had intended to make more cards with this set, but I ended up not needing to. It will definitely get used for some birthday cards though (and there’s always next Christmas)… Last year my mum asked me to make a card for her to give to her brother — he always gets her cards… Continue reading Christmas: Candles over snow flurry
A friend of ours really doesn’t do Christmas, but I hate to leave him off the Christmas card list. This year I was inspired to make him a solstice card instead, as celebrating the passing of the shortest day of the year is far more appropriate.

There is a bit of grey in there, but even that is a cool… Continue reading Deep blue sea (with lights)
Create A Smile is celebrating its second birthday and this month’s challenge is, fittingly, to create a birthday card. That gave me a really good reason to finally ink up the crokisses stamp set, which I absolutely love, but haven’t got around to actually using yet… I also decided that a shaker card would work… Continue reading Birthday: Crocuses
