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

Come on ......confess.................

Who's got loads of peel offs then? I know i have, i've got stacks in fact. I bought loads from create & craft when i first started cardmaking and before i discovered stamps and colouring.I hadn't thought about them until i started those wedding invites which prompted me to get them out and try to make some money back from them.Most of them are really naff but a couple of them were worthy of a play.

I sell my cards at the newsagent where i work and it always puzzles me why people choose certain cards over others. This type of card sells quite well when some that i've spent ages colouring and faffing about with for the same price can sit on the shelf for ever. There's a beautiful Tilda one there which may as well be invisible. These were quick and easy to make, i just plonked the peel offs onto some scrap papers and cut them out.

The cards are 6"x6", one white and one ivory. I'll take them to work next week and hopefully turn trash into cash. I also made some little 4"x4" cards which i'll show you tomorrow.
And yes.......i know i'm supposed to be making those invites but it drives me mad doing loads of the same thing so i'm just doing a few a day. Actually this isn't funny but i haven't made any today................yet....   I think i'd better do a bit of housework first to keep the guilt monster away.
 See you soon. Di.x
