Got a busy few weeks ahead on the card front. I have recently made a 40th ,50th and 60th and Golden wedding anniversary card for my mum but forgot to take pictures.OOps.

I have now made another 40th and still have a 50th to make for me, for the same people, so need different designs and styles!

I also need a wedding anniversary card for OH at the weekend and birthday card for son for August.I am also trying to get ahead with my xmas cards so will post some of those soon. I have the patchwork pals kit and some pink gem stamps along with lots of other things from previous years so have lots to play with. Now we have the school holidays upon us I have a little bit of spare time as I get school hols off too..yippee. Off to check out some flower diecuts so I can cut my own. Fed up cos my super bargain flowers have been lost in the post they were posted a fortnight ago and no sign of them so have now given up hope of ever getting them.

The blue card has been made with Kanban card as the base and papermania textured card which has been embossed with swiss dots and floral border. I have used craftwork card flowers. One is lightly inked blue and the other embossed with the swiss dots folder.The pearl gems are from lakeland so once I have used them all up will have to find some somewhere else. The stamp is a Sarah kay masked over an inkadinkado stamp and coloured in with copics.

The lilac card has DCWV pocket full of posies card on it and the stamp is a Wild Rose studio stamp. Coloured in with copics and then I have used a versamark pen to pick out the flowers and added clear embossing powder to add dimension . I have also added coloured gems to the flowers.The flowers are from the craft section of WH Smiths and the centre is a papermania jewelled brad.


  1. Lovely cards!
    I wish I had time to make a start on those christmas cards - have thought about it but got no further!
    Look forward to seeing them!

  2. Two lovely cards!.....thank you for the kind comments you left on my blog. The punch is the EK Success Retro Flower punch. It comes in different sizes I think I have the medium one it's about 2" across X

  3. Very pretty cards those, lovely job on your colouring.
    I know exactly what you mean about it being difficult to produce different cards intended for the same person, I've had to do that more than once!
