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!

Return Of Mr Thomas

Obviously I always look forward to my husband's return from his business trips, but my excitement is enhanced when he has been to Chicago, mainly because there is a Michaels Arts & Crafts shop right next door to his office.  This week I tasked him with a list of Martha Stewart Punches, some 12x12 DCWV pads and a pair of fringing scissors, all of which he tells me he has purchased! How lucky am I, roll on tomorrow for Hubby and new goodies!!!

Black & White Anniversary Card

I made this card for my brother to give his wife on their Anniversary today, 30th June! The date had momentarily slipped his mind and I offered to make him a card to save him a trip into town! I used my newest Martha Stewart heart punch across the bottom and a lovely piece of 12x12 that I had picked up at Ally Pally.  The Bride & Groom hearts is a real favourite of mine, but I have my friend Jess to thank for that as she first sent me the idea.  He was pleased with the end result, as was I! Even though I didn't finish until 11 o'clock, I hastily made another one to go in the Simply Handmade By ... box of goodies!!
