Birthday Recipe


Good Morning Everyone, 
I have to tell you all I have a new addiction, "Fitbit Charge HR", I've had one since December 30th and have lost three quarters of a stone in weight and a whole dress size. I love the fact a computer on my wrist has got me moving ore than ever, trying to beat step goals and personal bests to earn badges lol that and swimming certainly seeing the results lol. 

Anyway here is a Custom Order Card, I was asked to make a Birthday Card for a "Gran". I have used one of the very first stamps i bought from "Lili Of The Valley" and coloured it with my "Derwent Inktense Pencils".


The recipe stamp is also "LOTV". I have used my "Tea Party" embossing folder, circle nesties and "Cutlery" Doohickeys The flowers and Ribbon are from "The Ribbon Girl" and the design paper is from my stash. The small bows i have had hiding away in a drawer forever, so have started using them up.
I have added lots and lots of clear stardust to the flowers and wording.


The sentiment stamp inside the card is by "Penny Black" and I have used it a million times lol. The card blanks are from "Craftwork Cards".


I also made a matching gift box to protect the card in transit, card bases also came from "Craftwork Cards".
Thank you for looking.

High Tops


Hello Peeps,

Have another card to share with you all, this one was made for my youngest of 3 nephews Eughan who is turning 13 on the 5th March. As you know despite having 3 nephews and 1 niece, boy cards are my nemesis lol.


Anyway, I found this digi image t "Just Inklined" called "Hightops" and this is perfect for him as all 4 of them are converse fans (me too)lol. I coloured the image with my "Derwent Inktense Pencils" and the design papers are scraps of "Basic Grey" from my stash. 

The sentiments are computer generated and I went with an easel fold. Numbers were die cut using my cuttlebug.

Thanks for looking.

It's The Life In Your Years


Not the years in your life that count....

Hello, I just wanted to share this Custom Order with you. I was asked to make an Easel fold, vintage style 70th birthday card with matching box for a close family friend of my Mam's.


So I used this beautiful image from "Pion" and cut her out with my nesties, I made an embossed panel (Roses embossing folder) to stick her onto and to also hid a hidden sentiment label. The design papers are "Bo Bunny Rose Cafe Garden" my new all time faves, i have every colour and they are simply beautiful. 


The flowers are from "The Ribbon Girl", the pearls and the sparkly no: 70 is from my local craft shop "Haven Crafts". The little cream bows have been in my stash for ages and the resin heart and flowers are from "Live Love Crafts".


The lace and diamante pearl are from "The Ribbon Girl", and i must order me some more lol. The two quotations are "Penny Black" stamps and all other wording was computer generated.


big thank you to "Craftwork Cards" as this is where I order my card boxes from.

I have really enjoyed making this card, thank you for looking.

Mothers Day Card


Hello Everyone,
another post from me, this is a custom order card that i have been working on for Mother's Day. I have used some old design papers, think they are "Do Crafts" and my labels dies.


 I have used Some lace trim from "The Ribbon Girl" and some bead trim from my local craft shop. The butterflies were cut with my dies and i used my roses embossing folder too. Sentiments were computer generated. I also used my "Marianne Creatable Bird Cage Die".


I have stamped and coloured "Tilda with Peony" with my Derwent Inktense Pencils and fussy cut her and mounted her on foam pads to add depth to card. I also made a matching gift box for the card. 

A nice change from square cards.
