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

Howdy, Cowboys.

I was taking a stroll through Arthurs Free Clipart and came across THIS cute little image. How sweet is he?  There are a lot of serious images on this site but if you spend a bit of time sifting through there's quite a few cuties.
The stripy paper is from DCWV  Stack 6 and the other one is Papermania Henbury Lane. I've started to put a watermark on my cards because i was looking through a blog challenge site and i saw a card with an image which looked exactly like one i had on one of my cards. I went in for a closer look and the colouring was over the edge in exactly the same place, hmmm........... I suppose it's quite possible to zoom in on the image part of someones card and print it out. So the picasa  "add text"  function is now in full use.
I printed the sentiment onto the card using Thread Fun font. I'm so glad i learned to do this. No more crooked smudged sentiments and no more having to buy stamps. And of course they can even be naughty sentiments !

Decided to enter     Alphabet Challenge Blog  " stripes" challenge.

  2. Smashing card Diane a great little image. I don't blame you for watermarking your cards. Some people will stoop very low & it's not the first time I've heard of a design being pinched.
