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

Completely out of my comfort zone.

Thank you for all you birthday greetings yesterday, i had a great day and now i'm feeling very fat. I've just strutted 6 miles but i think i'd need to go and climb a mountain to get id of what i ate yesterday lol.
 I made this card on thursday to make myself  "branch out" of the safe zone i.e. white card bases. I find the white bases much easier and even struggle with cream.

Both the image and the sentiment are Clare Curd from papermania. The card base is 6"x4". I  really enjoyed making it and am pleased with how it turned out.I made another one which i'll show you tomorrow.
I'm going out later with Speedy who is in work this morning. Yes the saturday afternoon ritual has still got to be done lol. Meanwhile i've got some serious cyber shopping to do with all that birthday money. I'm not going anywhere near Hobbycraft with it as i've had everything worth buying from there and they very rarely have new stuff in.
    Thanks for visiting. Di.xx

  2. Hi Di

    A gorgeous card.

    I love what you have done here. A great layout and perfect choice of papers.

    So pleased you had a good birthday - and how nice to have birthday pennies to spend.

    I might have to go to Hobbycraft unfortunately .. .. I need some paper roses for wedding invitations .. .. I say unfortunately as I could do with spending the time here at home creating.

    Don't know if you know about this place Di - but they have some great second hand stamps (and to be honest they come like they are brand new).


    Have a lovely weekend.

    Love Jules xx
