Welcome to my blog. I hope you find plenty of inspiration here. Nothing too fancy, no great skills required, just lots of cards, gifts and perhaps the odd bit of shopping.

My blog contains lots of links to freebies. Without sounding like "mother" can I ask you to leave a kind comment to the generous givers of such fabulous artwork. I know of at least a couple of artists who are feeling a bit unloved at the moment. Thanks. X

It's a mans world number two

I really love this new "man" stamp set from Clare Curd. I love all the little elements which can be cut out or used to make a backing paper,(watch this space).
I reckon it's a real bargain at £5.99 and i'll get loads of use out of it for making cards to sell as they will look as good with just "flat" colouring.I enjoyed making this card but i think i'll keep it for personal use as people won't pay for all that fiddly cutting out.
I usually feel more comfortable making square cards but this image is more suitable for a rectangular 5" x7" card. The backing paper is Papermania green capsule collection.
You can't see very well in the photo but i put all the little bits of junk food (yum) onto 3d foam pads.I drafted this post last night to give myself as much time as possible to make some "stuff" for the rest of the week.
   Thanks for visiting, see you soon.  Di. xx

  4. Fab card Di, love how you've coloured the image and 3d'd all the extra elements. I don't have many stamps for men/boys so I'll have to keep a look out for this set and I so love the sentiments in it. Have a great day, take care Ann-Marie xxx
