Something a Little Different!

I have been working incredibly hard over the summer making cards that I have been fortunate enough to sell. This is one of them. I do like using black and white with a good accent colour and I quite like how the pink is a strong contrast. What would I do without my Papertrey Ink stamps?

A Tried and Tested Colour Combo!

I really love this Sweet Pea image from Papertrey Ink. I could (as you may have noticed) use it over and over again! I like to try it out with different colour combos and for different occasions.

Pearl Anniversary Card

I have been so busy during the last week since coming back from Scotland I haven't had a lot of time for crafting. However, I am fulfilling an order and this is one of the cards that I have made. I am trying to work out whether I should also have added a '30th' somewhere on the outside of the card also - still not sure.

A Simple Card!

This is a quick and simple card which is easily amended to suit any occasion. It is a simple card but it works for me and I think it is quite effective! The stamp set I have used is PTI.

Zorbing at Lake Winnoch!

Zorbing in Wow Balls! We travelled to Loch Winnoch so that our girls could have a go at this exciting new activity. We certainly don't have these in Northern Ireland! Brilliant fun - an inflatable cylinder that the children climbed into and bounced about in - on the water. The activity centre was called Castle Semple and it had loads of water based activities for both children and adults - great fun was had by all. We even had a picnic at the side of the loch.


We are having a fantastic time here in Scotland. The weather has been brilliant, we have done so many things and have enjoyed spending time with family.

These are the photos of Benson as I promised. Isn't he beautiful!!! He is only 16 weeks old and has the gentlest nature and is soooo well behaved - just like Ella at home (NOT!!).

A Few Days in Scotland!

We are spending a few days in Scotland especially to introduce my children to their new cousin - Benson the labradoodle!!! He is 16 weeks old and looks just like a real live teddy bear! I have taken some beautiful photos of him but as yet am unable to download them to this computer as I did not remember to bring the lead! However, I will share 'Benson' and some card photos if I am able to remedy the situation.

Finished my First Order!

I have just finished the first large order I have received for my cards. Up until now I have only made cards for myself and the odd one here and there for friends and family but mostly for pleasure. What that means is that until now I have had no time restrictions or deadlines. Making a large number of cards within a short time is hard work, in fact I am exhausted and happy to say that I have another large order which will need to be started - soon! !

Here is one of the card I made for my first order!

An Anniversary Card!

I have been working really hard for the past few days producing cards for a little shop a few miles from where I live. I have never sold my cards on this scale before and can't believe how exhausting making so many cards can be! I don't think that it will make me a millionaire - I definitely don't have the stamina!! I will post some pics tomorrow but in the meantime here is an anniversary card that I made with the Stampin Up bird punch - very handy indeed!

A Pink Birthday Card!

This is a card I made this evening. Pink and pussycat were the stipulations! I bought some lovely pearlescent card last week and had already used it on my previous project with Papertrey Ink's Sweet Blush cardstock which I thought worked well together.
