West Midlands, United Kingdom
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!

A card-in-a-box

I'm Back!!!!!!!!  Sorry I've been a bad blogger but I have been having problems with my hand due to Carpel Tunnel in my wrist which has made crafting difficult.  Thankfully I have been having treatment and it seems to be improving so I have had a crafty morning :)

I decided to make a card with a difference.  These cards are all over blogs and pinterest but I altered mine so that when folded goes into a 5" x 5" envelope.

I love pink/brown combos so I used pink pirouette and crumb card card, paper and inks with centura pearl card for the base for stability.

5" x 5"
