Hi Everyone. Happy Tuesday night. I hope you are all having a great week so far. UPDATE: Video link is now working! Tonight's card continues the love theme. I saw this fabulous challenge across at casestudy and thought...mmmm... I wonder what I can do with this. I pulled out some of my old DSP, Real Red satin ribbon, brights button, gold cord, gold embossing powder and metallic gold paper. Don't forget to pop along to the casestudy site and take a look at the amazing inspiration cards. Here's what I created. I was really happy with it. It has the... Read more →


Hi Everyone. Happy Tuesday night. I promised you a technique video tonight and you voted to see me using the Classic Inks with Blender Pen technique. I used the image from Angelic Joy to color.

Hi Everyone. Happy Sunday. I hope you all had a wonderful weekend. I was in the Christmas mood this weekend and managed to make a couple of Christmas cards for challenges.

I did....... Read more →


Hi Everyone. Happy Tuesday Night. Tonight I have another card made with the Because I Care set - but this one is clean and simple.

It really meant a great deal to me - and my mother would have been so incredibly touched by your comments. It's amazing how many of us have been touched by depression or suicide. In my Mother's day it... Read more →


Hi Everyone A tutorial for you tonight... and a couple of cards I made using the fabulous Happy Moments stamp set. This set is one of the free sets you can choose as part of Sale A Bration. I've been doing a "stamp a stack" for my card drive. You can see these cards at the bottom of this tutorial. I promised to show you how I have been changing my wood mount SU stamps into clear mount. I didn't think I would do this... but I have grown to love the clear mount versions of my Stampin' Up! stamps... Read more →
