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.

A Glamorous Birthday

Loved this image and thought it was perfect for a girlie 50th Birthday!
Been really busy this week getting ready for a Fayre last Saturday, but whether it was because of the weather or tennis, whatever, it wasn't busy, a bit of a disappointment.
Andy's Graduation was yesterday, we had a great day even though the weather was awful. I'll post pictures when I'm more organised.
Off to Canada tomorrow, can't wait!
See you all soon! x

Film Buff Cards

Today's cards are commissions for Phantom and Twilight fans. I cut out the piano keys and stuck them on individually, but next time I'd just cut one piece of card and draw thin black lines down it for the keys!
I cannot believe how hard the rain is coming down just now - June? More like February!

Silver Wedding Card

Today's card is a commission for a couple who like cats and work with figures, hence the numbers tumbling downthe sides! Thought I'd make some bunting as it's very "in" just now! The lady also plays the piano, so inside I printed some music from the number 1 song when they got married!

Oskar's Naming Day

A card for my friend's little grandson, Oskar's naming day in Sweden next week. She cried when she read the verse inside!

May beauty delight you and happiness uplift you,

May wonder fulfill you and love surround you.

May your step be steady and your arm be strong,

May your heart be peaceful and your word be true.

May you seek to learn, may you learn to live.

May you live to love, and may you love - always.

Mother's Day

These are the cards I made with my class of 6 year olds this year. They wrote their greeting on the back of the flower tag and then popped an After Eight chocolate into the pot! Home Mums liked them today - if they remembered to take them out of their bags! lol

Pair of Tildas!

Same but different - a pair of Tildas today. Haven't used Tilda for a while and had a couple of spare ones after my wee thank you cards the other day so had a wee play. It's another drab, dark day here but we had a wee glimmer of sunshine this morning with the news that my friend Anne has a new Grandson today. Congratulations Jane and Brian on the birth of baby Callum!
