I am a full-time working mum who works shifts with a son Richard aged 23 and a daughter Emma aged 20. I have been married to my lovely Husband Paul for 25 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!

A mega challenge card!

This card is made for 6 challenges:-


  1. A Spoon Full of Sugar #88 - Freestyle
  2. Passion for Promarkers #36 - Pastel green & Blossom
  3. Sweet Sketch Wednesday #34 - sketch
  4. Quixotic #11 - Flutterby
  5. Dutch Dare #70 - summer in winter
  6. Cute Card Thursday #97 - Blooming Gorgeous
I used my fabby new Manga stamp from Sugar Nellie (wonderful service as always) and freebie papers from Cardmaking & Papercraft Mag. I do hope they bring these papers out to buy as they are sooooo pretty! The sentiment is actually straight but as it is clear polymer stamp I managed to curve it before stamping.

Papers: "Pretty Please Spring Papers" by My Minds Eye
Sentiment: Hero Arts
Medium: Promarkers
Tools: Cuttlebug, nesties & Martha Stewart Heart Lace Border Punch

hi Jane, first off...deffinitly agree about the eye candy...Wish he was my Doctor...

Just thought I would say hi and ask what you need me to do. I have been to see Wendy today and she might be dropping you a line...my email is in my blog. I would love to start when your ready for me...just hope I can do a good job...

I asked Wendy to let me know the next time you visit her, so I could pop down to meet you if that's ok. I don't know much about blogging, never scheduled a post before and never had photobucket...so would like to ask your help with that please. The kid's normally have to give me a hand or I would'nt have a clue...
I look forward to hearing from you.

Vicky ( Kips cards ).

ps... I saw all the new Manga stamp's today at Wendy's...I came away with a MS punch...
