Many Happy Returns

This is the first time that I have used this stamp.....I've had it for a while......I always think that you can never have too many nice rubber stamps (or paper, ribbon etc etc!) Anyway, I am rather pleased with the result....I think the stamp is by Funstamps.

Thanks so much...

This is the first time I have used this stamp...by Stampin Up....the sentiment is Stampin Up too, but from a different set. I made the card for my-in-laws, as we spent the day at their house today , and had a lovely time.

Fizzy Moon Christmas

Spent a couple of hours this morning using this stamp to make a few Christmas cards. it's a great stamp, as the sentiment is one of a number that comes separately.

Been in the wars?

My elderly next-door-neighbour had a fall this week (well, to be more truthful, she was pulled over by her dog which had been startled by a car revving it's engine!) She has injured the tendons in her shoulder, and has her arm in a sling, so this seemed like an appropriate image! The image and sentiments are from Woodware's "Doctors and Nurses" set

Doodlecharms cupcake

I love this cupcake from the Doodlecharms cartridge, and spent a couple of happy hours in the afternoon heat making a few of these cards (and then went down to the beach for a paddle!)

Stampin Up Garden Whimsy

I am having a bit of a run on using stamps that I have had for a while but not got round to using. These two are from the Stampin Up Garden Whimsy set.

Envelope card

Inspired by Pinterest again!!


Baby boy and girl

A colleague at work asked me to make a baby boy and a baby girl card (he has a friend who is expecting and wants a card for each possibility! I was inspired by this post


that I found on Pinterest. The bottles are cut from"Simply 
Charmed",  and I used a bow maker to make the 
double loop bows.

Get well....

Neither are made for anyone in particular,....just couldn't resist trying this new Penny Black stamp. Just hope that I'm not tempting fate!!

Welcome Sapphire...

So, I have already made the card from new baby Sapphire to her two older brothers, and now these two are from each of those brothers welcoming their new baby sister! I used lovely Penny Black stamps.


A friend of mine has just had a new great-granddaughter, and has asked me to make several cards from various family members. This one is actually from the new baby to her two brothers (who are not much more than babies themselves!). I have used the lovely Woodware Noah's Ark stamp. There are a few more to come for this family, so watch this space!
