The paper is My Mind's Eye, The stamps are Kim Hughes and a a free font with pearls from Hobby House Crafts.
I've just got back from a day at Alexandra Palace buying more supplies that I desperately need ;) having a wonderful day with Soo and Sarah.... So I shall slink off now xx

The People at work are lovely :)

I am frequently getting commissions nowadays to make cards for people at work and I'm beginning to wonder if I shouldn't open a Folksy shop. But I don't want to get too big for my boots... Generally I get asked to make very bespoke cards but recently I was asked to make 2 'boy' christening cards, this is the first one and the second will be posted tomorrow...
The stamps are Kim Hughes from the now closed Cornish Heritage Farms (sob!) and I think that the paper was from my local craft shop :)

Ribbon Girl Colour Challenge #1

Did you know that over at the Ribbon Girl they have their first challenge?
It's a colour challenge; the colours being being orange, black and white. Great colours for this time of the year now that the seasons (and the leaves) are turning.
I made this card for my brother in law who's birthday is tomorrow (so I'd better get it in the post pretty swiftish).
The gems are Prima, the font is by Kim Hughes, the orage paper is Fancy Pants and I think the black and white paper is Tinkering Ink (but I'm not sure as it's been in my scraps bag for ages). The ribbon was not from the Ribbon Girl (my package from there is arriving later in the week...) but cut from clothes I was throwing out - we like recycling in our house ;)

Tiny, twisty and quick

Describes this post, the card I made for this week's Twisted sketch and the detail within :) This week's sketch was to incorporate 'tiny' any how, any way so I went for a tiny spot patterned paper by K & Co. The embellished chipboard was painted and glitzed many moons ago and I have no idea how I did it! The stamp is Hero Arts - such a beautifully defined image from these stamps (which are the clings range). It took no time at all to put together, a bit like this post ;) Laters xx

Chicken Soup Recipe #10

I'm still not sure what I think of my card for this one but this is how the recipe for week #10 spoke to me. Papers are Crate Paper, stamps are SU and Hero Arts. It's nice and standy-outy.....
