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

Love is in the air.

Back with a couple of  love cards.The photo's aren't that good but neither was the light when i took them. I was about to give them out when i realised i hadn't photographed them so it was just starting to go, not dark, but dusky.The first one is for an order from my boss.
There's no stopping me now i've learned to print straight onto cards. The only facility i've got for adding text is "my craft studio". The good thing about this is that you can move the text around with your mouse and there's a little dot in the centre. My laptop screen now has a little dot done with a sharpie pen where the text dot should be so all i have to do is line them up,lol.My brain is wasted in that paper shop !.The background stamp is Penny Black and the heart stamp which i embossed was a freebie with a mag years ago.Patterned paper from stash and little hearts by Papercellar.
The first card saved me from racking my brains about Neil and Nina's wedding card .I don't have much wedding type stash. Just after i photo'd it i put a bit of stickles around the edges of the hearts an dried it with a cool hairdryer. I used red and cream to match their wedding theme. As i said the photos are bad and they look much better in real life. 
           Thanks for visiting, next time i post we'll have a new daughter in law and very lovely she is too.

Target weight 9st 2 lb   weight this morning 9st 1lb, that's a pound in my pocket to play with,lol.
