It’s been one of those strange weeks, with lots of appointments and things to arrange but I did manage to fit in a little bit of stamping for some important people, even if it was pretty quickly over and done.

This one’s stamped with felt tip pens (Tombows) – image Penny Black.

Another Penny Black image (always useful for quick, effective cards) but this time stamped in Brilliance Thyme ink.  Love that Nestie background, but if I’m honest, I used to deckle cut a lot of borders when I first started stamping, so it’s a bit like going back to basics – the hard way 😉



Glossy card, Dylusions inks and one of my favourite ‘cute’ stamps, with that lovely water droplet background I fell in love with on Carol Q’s blog

This one was for someone very special to me who’s having a  rough time of it lately.


Most of my craft room is packed up now – just hope I’ll be able to stamp again soon…

Enjoy your weekend!




Just in case you’re joining me here for the first time, I’d like to wish you a very warm welcome!

Please bear with me while I sort things out properly – it’s one of those times when lots of things are  changing and it’s difficult to keep up with it all!  Look forward to blogging regularly, soon!


Lots of thank yous

It was my birthday not long ago and my lovely friends spoiled me (Thank you to all) so I made some Thank you cards to send. 

I had a few to make and very little time, so they had to be quick and uncomplicated.



I’d wanted to try this for a while now, so I die cut a butterfly mask in acetate, then sponged and stamped through it.  I quite like this effect, but the ‘Thank you’ should have been further up in the right hand corner.  I’ll get that right next time…
