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.

100 Today!

I made this for a colleague's Grandma'a 100th Birthday. She loves cats and I wanted to give the card a vintage feel with this K & Co paper.

Sketchy Lady

This is one of my favourite stamps from Clarity, I have made her in many colours. Here she is in pink.

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!

Thank You

Well it is bright and sunny here today with lovely blue skies, how long can it last, I wonder!

Here are my Thank You cards for the children in my class for all the lovely gifts they gave mr for Christmas. I have used Edwin for the boys and Tilda for the girls, mounted onto a simple embossed background. The pom-poks on the boys' hats are embossing paste.

Another Hurricane!

Another wild night here, bins blowing everywhere and trees down. My poor wee greenhouse didn't make it this time!
