Birthday Case


I had to make a birthday card for a friend this week, something pretty but elegant, my mind was a complete blank (as usual) – but inspiration was right in front of me in the form of one of Lindsey’s Convention swap cards.  I have to be honest I loved her little card right from the word go, and probably just needed an excuse to use it – this is it, I haven’t changed much, just gone large


And with Linz’s original


p.s. Thanks Linz xxx

Christmas Jingle Curly Paper Wreath.

Had a productive evening, I made a paper wreath – isn’t it brilliant! I actually made it as a gift for a friend, I now have an order for another three without leaving home, My husband, Mick saw the finished product and thinks we need three for the front room as part of our Xmas Decs.


My Pictures really don't do it any justice, the colours are much, much more vibrant!

It was really, really easy to make - and only uses six sheets of designer paper – the hardest part for me was finding the polystyrene ring!

Lots of swaps

Not a huge amount to show you I’m afraid, the one swap I could have taken photos of I was in too much of a hurry to get it in the post and completely forgot to take photos Smiley from

Eighteen of us have got together and have each chosen a card/project to case from the Stampin Up catalogue, which meant we each had to make eighteen cards ... I REALLY wish I’d chosen an simpler card. Many, many hours were spent bleaching, punching and distressing – can you guess which card I cased ...

As soon as my card comes back with the other seventeen I promise I will take a photo and post it.

In the meantime, what else have I been up to ... loads of Christmas cards, more swaps that I can’t share at the moment, which include, more than a few secret santa’s that I’ve made some handmade gifts for, and last but not least another swap – A Huge 12 days of Christmas Swap, I went upstairs to wrap this one yesterday, 4 HOURS LATER ...


I feel safe posting that little pile up on here as I’m pretty sure the recipient doesn't look on here. I had so much fun wrapping that lot, strange how I hate wrapping presents normally.
