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

Meljens freebie snowman.

I've got an order for 6 personalised Christmas cards. It didn't fill me with glee but i've managed to get them done over the last two days. I've kept them fairly simple with my SOS layouts and some free digi stamps from Meljens Designs. The first is a snowman which can be found HERE. I downloaded it then added the greeting.
This one's for a little boy of 4. I love this snowman so much i've printed out 6 sheets of 6 images, plus a few other designs, and am in the process of colouring them all ready for next year (yes, next year) while i'm still aware of what it's like not to be prepared for last minute requests. I think the paper is either Dovecraft or Papermania. It's quite old and i've lost the cover.
I added some stickles and a bit of 3d glaze to the carrot. I had to photograph them all last night in electric light as i have to take them into work today. 

Target weight, 9st 2lb. Todays weight, 9st 2lb. Stop right there missus !!. This cold weather has been making me want to eat roast dinners and such like,lol.  I could easily blame the staff night out last saturday but thats not all of it.


  1. Hi Di, it's definately Dovecraft as I have some that I keep shuffling over,mainly cos mines 12x12 and the images are a bit large for cards. I love the snowman's hat done brown,I've only thought to do it black. If you lived close by I'd get you to give me lessons on adding text, it makes the cards look so special! Have a great weekend, Julie x
