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

Feeling Fruity.

I thought I'd make a nice summery card today as the weather is so nice. Mind you I did trash my room in search of my mojo.

 This card is the result of thinking "oh well, I'll just do some colouring while the mojo is away". It all fell into place when i remembered this caption from Ginger's House  HERE. The image is also a freebie and is from Meljens Designs HERE.  The flowers are also Meljens and there is a link to them at the top of my sidebar. I coloured them, added glossy accents and cut them out. Another thing that gets done when the mojo takes a hike.
EDIT. OMG!  How freaky is this, I've just been to TLC blog and apparently today is............wait for it............National watermelon day!!!!!!
