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!

I’m in the process of moving this site to a new home:-


I’m sure it will take a while to sort out because I have a lot of other things on at the moment, but right now, I’m struggling because my current email provider has moved to another major company.  Unfortunately, they’ve duplicated some IDs and I’m unable to sign into more than one at a time., which has really messed up my Blogger and Yahoo accounts! 

I’ll keep posting in both blogs for a little while, but hope you’ll join me at the new one!  Sorry about this.


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…


Thanks for visiting and welcome to my new followers!
