Willow Christening Card

This card was made for a colleague at work, it was a bit last minute as she asked me to make the card on Thursday for the the following Sunday! Luckily I had the front of the card already made so all I had to do was decorate and personalise the inside and make a box. Because of the flowers on the front being so raised it wouldnt fit into an ordinary envelope but I am pleased with the end result, I think it makes it more of a keepsake.

First Past the Post

Twice in one week, can I cope with all this fame LOL! Opened my Cardmaking & Papercraft magazine this morning to discover that I had won the First Past the Post mystery prize! I sent this photo in ages ago when the Bentley Bear stamps were a giveaway in Issue 70 and had forgotten all about it. Its a lovely stamp set and I have made most of my christmas cards using these stamps.

Form and orderly queue for autographs please!!

I wonder what my mystery prize will be???

(PS received my prize this morning and its a sheet of Cute Companion Christmas Stamps!)

Woo Hoo, fame at last!!

I was thrilled to be invited by Clare Curd to take part in the Talent Spot feature of the November issue of the Do-Crafts 'Creativity' magazine a couple of months ago. I was sent a bag of Papermania goodies with which I had to create 3 cards and this is the result. I feel really honoured to be asked by Clare and I really enjoyed the challenge. It really boosted my confidence after a very bad year and just what I needed to cheer me up.
