Hi Everyone. Happy Sunday. This is my second post for today - and it's a quick one. I wanted to share a masculine birthday card I made for a bestie.

Just in case you missed it :-) Here's the link to... Read more →


Hi Everyone. Happy Sunday. It's the fabulous Claire's turn to host our Paper Players challenge this week and she has a color challenge for us: When I saw this color combo I immediately thought of a masculine type card and, as I needed some boy cards for the 2015 Cards for a Cause card drive, I decided this was the perfect color choices. However, I had to find a stamp set that would work. Mmmm.... I had to have a long hard think about what set I would use - especially as I don't have that many boy type sets.... Read more →


Hi Everyone. Happy Saturday and Happy Independence Day for my fellow American readers! It's my turn to host the Addicted to CAS challenge this week and I decided to go with a patriotic theme. As always, we have a prize for our Addicted to CAS challenge winner and the prize this week comes from our fabulous sponsor - a stamp set valued at Euro 12.50! We also have a new guest designer joining us, the very talented Kathy K from the Purple Princess Diaries blog. Now... for my card. I was really tempted to go with a 4th July card,... Read more →
