I nearly didn't make this card. I'm really not a fan of gnomes — I've only ever made one other card with gnomes on it and that was done with a particular person in mind — and I didn't want to make a card I am unlikely to use (my card stash is big enough… Continue reading Gnome wedding
Because I spent March mostly working on mixed media pieces, I didn't get around to making this until almost the last day of the month. And then my craft desk was still an absolute mess so I couldn't take the photos to go with the blog post and I ended up putting a quick photo… Continue reading Cat on a bookshelf
Another month, another challenge image from Gerda Steiner. And, thanks to the Daily Marker challenge, I have actually completed my entry in the first half of the month for a change.

Actually, it's more the "thinking about writing the… Continue reading Cake Monster
I don’t care if the digi stamp is called “hello friend turtle”, it has feet not flippers so it must be land-dwelling, therefore it’s a tortoise (checks… okay, technically all tortoises are turtles but still…). Now I’ve got that out of my system, on to the card 🙂 It’s been a while since I took… Continue reading Hello tortoise!
