Hi, welcome to my little crafty place on the web! I,ve been crafting one way or another all my life, and card making for the last 8 years and am now totally hooked! I live with my husband of 32 years, Robert and two children, Claire, 24 and Andy, 21. I am a primary school teacher and currently teach 6 year olds.

Well, here are the wee birdies again - this time for Christmas! The paper I have used is My Mind's Eye Wonderful Winter glittered papers which I love using. It's such a good quality and I love the contemporary feel to them, and of course many of them are not just for Christmas! The ones with text are The Night Before Christmas.

This was a commission I had from a dear friend who has just lost her uncle. He and her Dad were great golfing buddies and she wanted cards for her cousins to depict the two of them playing golf in heaven - the family are all sure that's what the two of them will be doing up there to their hearts' content!

A Christmas Carol by Papermania - I have wanted that stamp for such a long time and eventually tracked one down in April without having to pay a silly price for it. Anyway, I was bitterly disappointed when it arrived as it had not been mounted straight on its wooden block and there seemed to be a dip in the middle and I couldn't get a good impression from it. Well, I took the bull by the horns yesterday and put it in the microwave to get the rubber off then remounted it straight and used a stamping mat underneath, and hey presto, we have a card! I used a Brilliance inkpad which gives a lovely sheen to the image. I have kept the card very simple to let the stamp do the talking. What do you think?

Most of you know by now that I'm addicted to the Whimsy Wings of Hope stamp - well here is their Christmas horse, "Cool Ride" so I've made a wee stack of these over the week end anticipating a few sales! Once again, I am so in love with him, what do you think? The photos do not do justice to the sparkles I have used.

I made this for my sil's Mumwho loves her garden and couldn't resist another easel card!
Off to the Edinburgh Festival today with Claire. We never pre-book anything, just turn up and see what we fancy and quite often dash from venue to venue and drink in all the atmosphere.

I've had this tree embossing folder for a while and haven't done much with it, will be using it much more now with my wee bird punch!
Today we have A little bird told me... it's your birthday, you've not been well, it's your anniversary, you're engaged, you have a baby boy, you have a granddaughter, you've moved!
