Stamping Bella beauties

Hello friends! As promised …. I am sharing the adorable SB cards that I found stashed away for a rainy day. Only 1 of each … but all made to the same design. I remember how much I enjoyed using my prisma coloured pencils for these sweet images … all those months (years??) ago. I…

A Couple of Wedding Cards …

Hi again bloggies! Just wanted to say a very big thank you to Kim & Lynda for all the sweet encouragement via their blog love recently. Thanks for taking the time to stop by and say hi and let me know what you think about my latest creations! It is always a thrill to get…

En Francais CAS

Hi bloggies! Another quick and easy card today … and another that has been sitting in my files for months! I have had a lot of wedding & engagement cards to make recently and have found some fabulous inspiration around in cyber space! There are some wonderfully clever crafters out there! This background stamp “En…

Boy’s Birthday Cards

Hi bloggies! Son-in-law no. 2 (as in 2nd married … not 2nd in favourites!) is having his birthday today. So … I thought I would share his birthday card with you all. The colours haven’t photographed particularly well … and I think I made them worse with some photo editing trying to get them closer…

Thinking of You? … Send a card!

Hi bloggies! One of the nicest thing about card making is the smile it brings to someone’s face to find a handmade card in the mail box! There is nothing nicer than to know someone has taken the time not only to stop and write … but to create something special to acknowledge that you…

Hello Stranger!

Visit my PINTEREST page … Hi my friends! Well … it has been a little while … hasn’t it!? To be honest … I have found it hard to find the time to blog. Somehow I have always managed to do at least 2 or 3 posts a week (except in really busy times) ……

A 2nd quick photo post!!

Hi again! Second post for today! Just sharing some pics from our holiday to Vanuatu to visit Gav’s sister, hubby & family. We stayed in their home on the church site where they are doing mission work. Lots of wonderful experiences and the people were so warm,  welcoming & generous! It certainly was so much…

A quick photo post!

Hi guys! Back from holidays … and life has been hectic catching up. Just thought I would quickly share a couple of photos from Skye’s 21st party …. These are unedited … apologies for the quality! I can do better with them but just haven’t had a chance yet! Will be back with photos from…

Rainy Days

Hi bloggies! Well … I have decided my recently new blog look is completely appropriate! We are feeling very soggy after 9 days straight of rain! Sometimes torrential … but definitely consistent. But … I do LOVE the rain … and never complain because it means our water tanks are FULL! (We don’t have access…

It’s Your Birthday

Hi bloggies! Another quick post … things to do! I found this great sentiment stamp over at Taylored Expressions … and have been itching to use it for a while! I gave it to my f-i-l for his birthday! Bright & funky! A great choice for a male card … but you could also dress…

Flowering Flourishes Sympathy

Hello my friends! We had a very sad time at church recently with one of the ladies (mum of 4 kids) finally (after 3 1/2 years) succumbing to her terminal cancer. But … what a wonderful blessing it was to attend her memorial service and hear how she kept her eyes focussed on God ……

Hello there!

Hi bloggies! At the craft retreat I went to in February I saw some wonderful projects that were made using some new SU! goodies! I had been trying so hard to resist … but came home and just HAD TO order some. They arrived a little while ago … but I have only just had…
