Bailey has a baby

Hi blog friends I don’t think I need to tell you how much I adore the Stamping Bella range of stamps. If I could … I would have them all. And … no matter what I buy … there is always something else I would love to get! Does anyone else have that problem? Anyway…

Sending hugs

Hi blog friends! I have added a few encouragement sets to my stamp stash recently … and it has been nice to send some cards out to friends who are struggling. That is one of the best things about card making … sending happy mail to brighten someone’s day. This card is a combo of…

Thrown together!

Hi blog friends! This card was literally thrown together. I had been playing around with adding distress Oxide ink to glitter embossing paste and had created a quick heart stencil background on black card as a practice sample. It was sitting on my desk. I also had some scallop card off-cuts from a previous card…

CASE-ing Yana

Hi bloggies! When I saw this card on Instagram … I just had to try it out. The original inspiration comes from Yana Smakula … another card maker that I follow on YouTube. Thanks Yana! I just loved the vibrant colours! A slight variation in layout … but inspired by Yana’s Card, just the same….

Q&E Cards x 2

Magical Dragons

Hi bloggies! We had a happy but exhausting day at the Sydney Royal Easter Show yesterday. I worked out we hadn’t been since Sandy was 3 years old … that’s 16 years ago. This adventure involved a 1 1/2 hr drive to Sydney and then a bus to the show with all 16 of us…

Valentine Chicks
