About Me

Thank you for visiting my blog. It is a little basic at the moment but hopefully it will blossom as I gain in Blog confidence! I am lucky enough to be part of the Simply Handmade By ... team and also make cards for friends and family. Cardmaking has long since been a passion but, if I am honest, it is increasingly becoming an Addiction!

3d Vase of Flowers Card

I love the my Polka Doodles CD, printed off this great A4 Vase of Flowers card. I decoupaged the main images, added gems, glitter, yummy card candy plus a few bits and bobs and it ended up quite snazzy. I gave it to my mum on her birthday last Wednesday, 9th Feb, and she loved it. Although very simple it was something a little different. At least now friends and families birthdays are out of the way for a bit I should have time to make some bits for Simply Handmade By ...., I'll be in trouble otherwise!

LadyBird Easel Card

I love this bright and fun Easel card. I have made it for my daughter Ellie's 11th Birthday which is tomorrow, Valentines Day. Hopefully she will like it. I printed the papers and ladybirds from the Polka Doodles Paper Boutique CD 1. With a few flowers and bits and bobs I was quite pleased with the finished result.
