Hi Everyone. Happy Tuesday. Over the next couple of weeks I will be sharing some swap cards with you, all using supplies from the new SU Holiday catalog. I participated in two different swaps that yielded 11 cards per swap. I made two different cards, but forgot to take photographs of both of the final cards before I posted them off! I have a prototype of one - but not of the other! Tonight, I'm sharing with you the card made with the Partridge and Pears set, some of the new All is Calm Washi tape and the new On... Read more →

Hi Everyone. Happy Monday. It's my final turn as featured designer at Merry Monday this week and I can honestly say that I have had a blast this last month. The MM team is a very talented group of ladies and I am so pleased to have been playing along with them in September. It's the fabulous Katie's turn to host our challenge this week and she has a fabulous one: Now, there are so many wonderful places you can go with dots and stripes - from warm and cozy and log cabiny - all the way to clean and...

Hi Everyone. Happy Saturday. It's the fabulous Sandy's turn to host our Paper Players challenge this week and she has a great sketch for us: It's been a while since I made an "inchie" card and spent a fair amount of time wondering what I was going to put in those "inches".

Pity I couldn't get them on straight:-) I stamped the small snowflake with silver Encore ink and then used silver embossing... Read more →

Hi Everyone. Happy Wednesday. I have a very quick post for you tonight and it features one of the sets from the new Mini Catalog. Immediately I saw this set I knew I had to have it. It reminds me of a wonderful New Year's Eve that we spent with our dearest friends. It was a truly awesome night and one that finished at around ... mmm... 5am! So, everytime I see this stamp, it reminds me of that night and makes me smile. I decided that it wasn't just a Christmas card stamp and that I could also use... Read more →

Hi Everyone. Happy Monday. Well, I had promised you an Ornamental Pine card today... cos I know you are all suffering withdrawal symptoms from not seeing one fora while. However, I changed my mind when I saw the challenge across at Merry Mondays. It's the fabulous Kathy's turn to host the challenge and she has a fabulous Bingo challenge for us. I went vertically on the first column. Red, die cut and sparkle. I mean, have you ever known me run away from a sparkle challenge :-) I used an old parcel die, I think it's from Papertrey ink? I...
