I am a full-time working mum who works shifts with a son Richard aged 23 and a daughter Emma aged 21. I have been married to my lovely Husband Paul for 26 years. My passion in life, besides my family, is papercrafting, especially cardmaking, although I "dabble" in scrapbooking. I was introduced to Jewellery making in 2012 and found another addiction :) I have been cardmaking since 2006. I am also a bit of a tigger freak!

Oh my - what a busy day!

Oh my - I have been sooo busy today with cards! Had order from work for 2 birthday cards and 30 Christmas Cards! All been made today. The two birthday cards are below but I have to admit the Christmas cards were a bit of a cheat as she only wanted two designs so have been "production line" crafting (not my fave thing but hey it's all funds for more craft goodies!)

This first card is made using fabby sketch on Sunday Sketch & Stamp #11. Nice basic layout so thought would be great for the guy card I had to make.

This second card is also for order but fits with four challenges:-
  1. Cupcake Crafts #57 - Pearls & Swirls
  2. Charisma Challenge #37 - Flower Power
  3. Our Creative Corner - colour challenge of pale pink, hot pink, white & brown
  4. Sketch Saturday #69 - sketch
I love this colour combo and one of my fave images too!
