So what have I been up to?


I didn’t intend to be away from blogging for so long! I’m sure I’ve said that before!!

Today I’m poping in to share some cards. I recently did a huge restock of my card stash. Here are just a few I have shared on insta/facebook.

Wedding Cards – sentiments from PTI and 3 tier wedding cake coloured with alchohol markers from Concord&9th.

More wedding cards again the sentiment is from PTI and the “Mr&Mrs” diecut is from kaisercraft.

I got on a bit of a roll with the onesies! Stamped onto pattern paper and die cut. Stamps from PTI and SU – I inked up some older sets here. I found the PTI set so much easier to use with a repositioning tool and made making multiples a breeze once I had selected the pattern paper.

More PTI inked up and again easier to use with a repositioning tool. Sentiment from YNS.

Some requested First Communion & Confirmation cards.

That’s all for now. Although I have more to share another day!

If you are in my part of the world you know we are heading form some wet and cold weather so stay warm and dry.

Until next time

#98 March Challenge, 2020 – Hope
What represents Hope?
Flowers (Tulips, Myrtle, Marjoram, Lotus, Daisy); castles in the air; clouds; sunshine; and sunrises; new beginnings and/or birth; energy and youth; to name only a few things.
You can tell us what represents HOPE to you…..
TWIST – use yellow as the main colour

I love the hope that a new bub brings.


This is a tiny 7.5 x 7.5 cm square gift card.  I die cut my baby onesie in felt using PTI hanging out die.  Being able to cut materials other than paper was one of the reasons why I originally got a die cutting machine as I did have a punch collection.  I only wanted to cut flowers and hearts in felt to add to my hand made soft toys it was an added bonus that I could also die cut images for card making as well.  Well looking at my die stash you can see this went in a totally different directon! Any way my card also uses a couple of circle punches and a die cut sentiment.

After making this card I might just make some more with felt.  I can see a washing line full of baby onesies.

I hope to see you in the challenge – remember no stamps!  It’s a great way to stretch the other things you have in your stash.

Thanks for stopping

two by two (640x470)

I layered my card where the original used peep holes and added a sentiment. I have used SU Two by Two coloured with markers and crayons. I punched the image using 1″ punch and layered onto red scrap CS using a 1 1/8″ punch, The card front is AC CS embossed with Chevron embossing folder. The white and beige cs are from my stash. I used AC Mini scallop border punch on the white cs. I used SU pool party marker to colour sentiments “Welcome Boys!” from PTI Hanging Out to make the banner.

School holidays have started here. Last night Ms 18 had friends over for pizza and movie night. We made our own pizza base and the girls added all their own toppings. The girls followed this with hot jam donuts and ice cream with sprinkles.

This is one of their creations – heart shaped with philly and oregano topping.
