Hi Everyone. Well... I did it. I finally made a card. It was late for our Paper Players challenge - but I finally cut some paper, inked up some stamps and colored an image! It's the first card I have made in over a month. I generally try to get my challenge cards made well in advance, but I didn't quite get them all finished for the rest of the year before my mojo went south. It's the fabulous Joanne's turn to host our Paper Players challenge this week and she has a sketch for us: Now, this sketch was... Read more →

I thought that would be the ideal thing for the challenge. I began by die-cutting a piece of Neenah Solar White card stock and then adhered it to a Solar White base. I die-cut a... Read more →


Those of you who have been with me for a while may remember that every Poppy Day (Remembrance Day) in England, my father would proudly wear a poppy and visit the cenotaph. He never missed it. Never. It was his own way of remembering his friends and comrades lost in arms. Always guilty and always grateful, that he returned home to his family. Even though Dad has been dead for some 30 years, I never let this day go without paying tribute to those we have lost. As the War to End All Wars fades and we are now 72... Read more →
