Mix and Match ....

Still trying to make a dent in my ever growing pile of stash! 

 I made these 3 cards using a variety of old papers, stamps, ribbon, embellishments and sentiments - none of which are from the same sets. I've used the black card mats to try and tie them all together

Embossed grass ...

These 3 embossing boards were free with Simply Cards & Papercraft Magazine and I couldn't wait to use them !

I loved the idea of a black cat stalking through the long grasses, so teamed the embossing background with a Poppy Stamps die cut cat and black spotty Craftwork Cards sentiment to make this simple card.

Simply Cards Magazine ....

Was chuffed to see one of my cards featured in this months Simply Cards & Papercraft Magazine when it popped through the door this morning - it's the black T-shirt card. 

The Kanban T shirt toppers have been great to make up birthday cards for the teenagers and men who don't want to have cars or sports on their cards

It Pays to Plan Ahead!

I knew that I would be out of action craftwise for 10 days whilst we had the lounge decorated - what I didn't realize is that they would uncover several problems when they started that would lead to lots more building work, including a new floor and skirting boards - most of our furniture has had to go into storage!

Here we are over 3 weeks later and they still have not got round to painting the walls yet. Luckily I has made my Mothers birthday card in advance, unluckily I hadn't made a Mothers Day card for her. Being optimistic, I hope that everything will return from storage before then!!
