Happy Wedding Anniversary!

Hi! August is the month of my parents’ wedding anniversary (33 years this year!), so I needed to make them a lovely card. I decided to make it using parchment for a change, and used a pattern that I had downloaded from online. It features bells, rings and ribbons, and is suitable either as a… Continue reading Happy Wedding Anniversary!

Festivals galore!

There’s one problem to the summer – too many craft festivals!! There’s always something going on somewhere, or something to plan to go to, never good if, like me, you live on a very restricted budget and don’t get out of the house much!!┬áBut I have managed to get to 3 events this summer, which… Continue reading Festivals galore!

If you look closely you will see that, although the same colours have been used on… Continue reading Iris Card Mark 2 – Sparkly Baubles!

An Owl in an Iris

Hi My first attempt at making an iris card was to make a card with an owl on it. I chose this as my granny loves owls and I thought I could send it to her. Iris cards are really easy to make – you just cut an aperture in the front of the card… Continue reading An Owl in an Iris

Training with Yaris & Happy 30th!!

Bit behind with telling you about it (I know I said I was going to blog more often than this, but I’m catching up now!!), but thought I’d tell you all about getting Yaris. We’ve been together a few weeks now and it’s going well, but at one point I didn’t think I would even… Continue reading Training with Yaris & Happy 30th!!
