One of the men from our church was celebrating his 90th birthday and so
I was asked to make a card for everyone in our Salvation Army band to sign for him.
So I made this rather large A4 card with a musical theme in mind as Harry was a bandsman
for many years in the Salvation Army.

This is the latest Christmas design. The card itself has been embossed and layered up with a stamped Christmas message. Finished off with a few gems on a band of colour.
Latest Christmas card in black and white
Latest Christmas design in red and white
The same cards but using cream card. A set of 10 cards are only £6.
This was a favourite card of mine from last Christmas as its just so simple but still elegant.
The card itself stands landscape style and is stamped as you can see with 3 snowflakes which have been embossed with silver embossing powder and then set with a heat gun. Each snowflake has a gem attached in the middle. The wording Joy Peace and Hope then leads us nicely into the verse printed inside which reads...
"In a small and humble manger, on a night of peace on earth,
God gave us His greatest blessing, the gift of Jesus' birth.
May the wonder of that evening continue all year through,
and bring the joy of peace and hope thisChristmas day to you."
Unfortunately the quality of these pics aren't the greatest as I took them a few years back with not the best of cameras, but it says
When they saw the star, they were overjoyed.
On coming to the house,
they saw the child with his mother Mary,
and they bowed down and worshiped him.
Then they opened their treasures
and presented him with gifts of gold
and of incense and of myrrh.
Matthew 2 10&11
For unto us a child is born,
unto us a son is given,
and the government shall be upon His shoulders.
And His name shall be called
Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God,
The Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.
I came up with these designs 2 Christmas' ago. I love the simplicity but the true meaning of Christmas to me is clear to see with the wording!
Pack of 10 only £5 too!

Well, I've been working like a Trojan all night long and all 15 cards are made. I'm delighted with them and it was great fun crafting them.
One of my friends asked me to make some thank you cards that were very pink and girly. These cards are always fun to make and I thoroughly enjoyed making this card. Now just another 14 to go!!!
These cards are just slightly above A6 size but square. I used my big shot sizzix and polka dot embossing folder to make the patterns on the pink paper as well as the card itself which is a new idea. I then used my big shot again along with my scallop cutting plate to make the gorgeous scallop shape. I then punched the scallops with my small hole cutter to add to the cuteness.
Then by using various circle punches I have built up upon the scallop with the top circle printed with "thank you".
A lovely striped pink paper and a few bots of bling bling just finish it off!
I'm really delilghted with this one and hope you like it too!

This was paper I bought from paperchase and knew that someday I would be able to use it for something.
Using it to cover a plain notepad just gives it a new lease of life.
Adding a wee bit of ribbon and a name tag just adds that special touch!
I am having so much fin with recovering notepads/books.
This is an A5 notepad which has been given a facelift and has
been made for my youngest daughter.
This makes a lovely gift from something quite plain and ordinary
into something really special and personal.
Any colour any name, or verse of scripture.....endless ideas!
Add a verse of scripture and elegant embossed card and it becomes a really sweet encouragement notepad!
This is my latest craze! Recovering notepads and personalising them and pretty much just funking them up or making them look a bit more special!

This design can be used for so many different occassions. I love the sparkle and richness of the gold embossed paper. All Mum's deserve a touch of gold!
I made this card before but in more masculine colours. I was asked by a friend to make this card but to suit a lady.... so here you are.
I loved making this card. Using my new Big Shot to emboss the paper and then using my fiskars cutting heart template to make this perfect heart shape was so much fun! These cards can come in many colours....just ask!
