First 'Coffee Break' makes

These were quite fun and easy to make, the dies cut well and I like the shadow stamps to fill in the colour

I decided on a clean, retro look for the cards - bit different from my usual  vintage flowers and butterflies style!

Another Competition win ....

This time from Creative Stamping Magazine, one of my favourites! It is a Die-Namics stamp and die cutting set from the My Favorite Things range called Coffee Break and featuring Coffee pots, mugs and cups

Plus it has these great sayings such as 'You Deserve A Break' and 'Coffee is Always a Good Idea'

A Gossip or Pod of ...... Mermaids

The internet is not sure what you call a group of Mermaids - could it be a gossip, a pod or even a splash? Regardless, I have still been making more mermaid cards with the free Sheena Douglass stamp I got a while ago

They have proved very popular and have sold well!

I try to make each one different, using a variety of stamps, backgrounds and embellishments

Sometimes she has blond hair, others brown or red, but I always paint the mermaids tail with green & blue cosmic shimmer to make it stand out!

Even More Fairy Cards!

Thanks to the 'Beast from the East' and Storm Emma, I have had time in the evenings to make even more birthday cards with my Fairie Dust winnings!

The pastel colour scheme is so pretty, with so many different elements to play with. I should be able to make dozens and dozens of cards with them all.
