Iris Folding!

Hi! So, July is over, and I learned to make some wonderful iris fold cards! You can see pictures of them below (and the card labelled “Karen’s card” is one she made, not one I gave to her!!).

Sparkly Present & A Friendly One Too!

Swapping Again!

For July I decided to be a bit more adventurous when it came to the card swaps I do (for Yahoo message boards). I couldn’t manage the parchment swap this time (it called for more advanced skills than I have!), so I decided to do the “technique” swap too this month – to make a card… Continue reading Swapping Again!
