Happy Birthday Debs

A friend asked me to make a crad for her daughter who apparently loves cats and flowers......this Penny Black stamp seemed to fit the bill perfectly. Debs has a severe visual impairment, so I have tried to make the card high contrast so that she can see it as well as possible.

Three quick cards!!

I have made 3 very quick cards this Easter weekend. Two use a lovely rabbit from the Penny Black "Garden Critters" set, and the third is a "Funstamps" stamp, which I find really useful for men's cards.

Happy 50th birthday

This is for a colleague who has a "significant" birthday coming up. It was inspired by a card I found here
 I used the Birthday Bash cartridge to cut the candles.

Bat Mitzvah

A friend asked me to make a Bat Mitzvah card. It needed to be quick, so this star cut from the "Joys of the Season" cartridge seemed perfect.

Thank You....very much!!!

My friend Wendy asked her elderly father to make me a boot jack ( a piece of wood with a "v" cut into it to aid the removal of Wellington boots!) I was presented with it last week, complete with a red ribbon tied around it as it was my birthday. He has made it beautifully from some recycled English Oak which was once a desk at the school my husband attended. I felt the need to make a thank you card, and this lovely stamp by Woodware seemed perfect!

50th birthday

A colleague at work asked me to make a 50th birthday card for a friend who likes motor bikes. I have to confess the motor bike was a ready made topper that I bought from our local craft shop.

Get well soon

A very quick card (I mean super-quick!) for my father in law
