Wise Old Owl Cards

I just love the fab autumn owl papers from this months Making Cards Magazine. I was given a £15 voucher as a thank you for helping out at work. So I blew it all in my local craft shop!

I treated myself to a cosmic shimmer mist, daisy punch, prima flowers and this magazine.

Pagan Wolf Card

Well - I'm on a bit of a roll tonight and have made 7 Christmas cards including this one for a pagan friend. The wolf in trees was a digi image and I just need to find the right sentiment to go on it for her !

I now have a blog where I sell cards suitable for pagans to send or receive over christmas time at

Christmas Mojo has arrived!

I bought Quick Cards Made Easy magazine today and the free Christmas snow globe card kit has inspired me to start making my Xmas cards at last!

Not using their snow globe shape but a square card with my round and labels nesties to layer their cute Reindeer - I also added a spot of red silkies to his nose to make it stand out!

A Rose by any other name..

Another fairly simple card featuring a rose from the docrafts goodie back and my trusty Martha Stewart lace punch! The two kittens are growing fast and very mischievous - any craft materials left on the table are inspected and played with, Promarker pens are a favourite to roll off the table!

I've got a Present and Its Not Christmas Yet!

I just can't get in the Christmas spirit yet, I got my box of xmas stamps and papers out but don't feel inspired to start using them yet whilst it is still summer, so I have put them away until September! This card I made with some of the stuff from the docrafts goodie bag I bought last week.

But I am very excited to discover I have won Debbi's blogaversary candy which has 20 (yes 20 !) promarker pens and loads of fab papers, sugar nellie stamps and other goodies. I feel very lucky - perhaps I will go out and buy a lottery ticket!

Another Summer Willow WOJ CArd

Couldn't resist making another card with this lovely image of Willow from Whiff of Joy - this time with a pink and raspberry colour scheme.

I also popped out to The Range just to buy some fence preservative and guess what - the latest Docrafts Goddie bag just fell into my basket! Its full of lovely pink and girly bits that look fabulous!

Summer Willow WOJ Card

Isn't this a sweet image of Summer Willow by Whiff of Joy. I wanted to try a different combination of colours - I don't think I have used mainly red and lilac before!

Willow is coloured with promarkers and she has a Marianne flower and Martha Stewart doily lace trim

New Camera

Horray my new camera has arrived - didn't realise how much I would miss not having one for a few days, couldn't put anything to sell on eBay and couldn't update this blog or post on the docrafts site! Anyway here are a couple or cards I made yesterday, the Get well card looks a bit too' busy' for me

Boys eh!!

I made this Beatles themed card for my son who is really into them at the moment ( I blame X-box for the Beatles Rock Band game). I let him have 3 friends over for a sleepover to celebrate his birthday and what happens ..... he manages to break my digital camera whilst taking some photos and messing about. He is going to have to give me some of his birthday money towards a new one as I can't manage without one - how would I keep this blog up to date?

Kitty Cat birthday cards

Made a couple of cat themed cards using the cute Me-Wow die cut cats from the Nitwit collection - whilst trying to type this mad Moxxi the kitten decided to walk all over my keyboard!

Photos of our New Kitten

These are the cute, adorable kittens we have just adopted from the Blue Cross - our local branch is current full up with black kittens and cats and put out an appeal for help - and who could resist these! They are an 11 week old brother and sister originally called Grace and Gordon but now named Millie and Moxxi by the kids (don't ask why!)

Moxxi, the boy, has the white paws and bib and is already proving to be bold, adventurous and cheeky!

Millie is completely black and very petite. She is a bit more refined and cautious, but loves sitting on your lap and being stroked.

Tomorrow we introduce them to our existing cat - not sure how he will react as he is very timid and shy as he was a rescue cat - but we will make sure he gets lots of fuss and cuddles too!

Craft Stamper Visage

I just love this new stamp that is free with this months Craft Stamper Magazine, it hasn't come out very clearly on the photo, but the green background is stamped with the word visage.

The other ATC incorporates a doily lace edging over silver mirri board. I went to visit the blue cross centre and found 2 sweet little kittens called Grace and Gordon who I hope to adopt - taking the rest of the family to meet them both tomorrow!
