Tilda with Bird

Another card made with an image from the recent swap I took part in. I'm loving this card not too fussy, sometime less is more.

Sitting Tilda

You know sometimes it is really hard to get the layout of a card right. I have really struggled with this one and still not that happy with it, but hey.

Grandmas are angels without wings

I've only managed to make one card this weekend due to my daughter having to sleep in my craft room while my hubby decorates her bedroom. Anyway, I have managed to make this card for Poppy to give to my Mum for her birthday. This card is rather apt as my mum hand stitched a quilt for Poppy and it took her 5 years.

How Organised!

I can't believe I have made my daughter Poppy's birthday card. Her birthday isn't until 5th May. Knowing me I will have changed my mind by the time her birthday arrives and make her another one.

A lady I have recently meet on Uk Scrappers has been very kind to me and so I thought I'd make her a thank you card. Stamp is Tilda in rain shower by Magnolia.

Rubber Stamp Storage

I have quite a collection of unmounted rubber stamps and needed a storage system. I found this idea on Stamping Bellas website. I bought some trading card wallets from Ebay they only cost a couple of pound. I stamped all my images and put them into the front of the wallet so I can see them easily. For the larger stamps I used an envelope.
