Welcome to my new blog

Welcome to my new blog.  It's still a work in progress and the layout may change a few times over the next few days!  I hope to be back regularly to share what I've been working on.  If you've made it over to my new  blog I'd love you to leave a comment.

Simple Flower Brads



When I made the first one of these cards it made me think of those cute little biscuits, iced gems I think they're called, the ones with the little biscuit and a rosette of hard icing on top!

They're a very simple card but one I really like - I tried them with all sorts of colour combinations! What do you think? Too simple?

Big Shot Beautiful Butterflies


The colour of these cards are a little outside my comfort zone! Whilst I was on my crafting weekend I had taken with me all my left over Designer Series Papers. So I grabbed some of the Sweet & Sour Speciality papers and the matching cardstock and created these cards.
The double butterfly technique was shown to us at Convention by fellow demonstrator Kirsty Brown. I love the effect it gives. 

Baby Tees Wheel



Here's the other card I made using the Baby Tees Wheel. I think this one is my favourite. That's not a new punch you're seeing but simply the edge of one of the Nursery Suite Speciality Designer Series Papers.
