More Hunkydory Under the sea cards

Some more birthday cards made with the Hunkydory papers and stamps I mentioned yesterday

Plus this one has a blue lobster on it!

 Happy New Year and I hope  2019 brings you health, wealth and plenty of time to craft!

Hunkydory - Twilight under the Sea

I've had this Twilight under the Sea paper pad for a while now, it's got some great designs in it and on a trip to The Range yesterday I spotted these 'Dive In' silhouette and sentiment stamps that go with it for £4.99 - so I snapped them up!

As you can see they go together well and make a different type of card - such a change from my usual girly flowers & butterflies!

And this is a card I had made previously with the background papers and a sweet fairy!

Merry Christmas to you all, and I hope that everyone appreciated your Christmas cards and other home made crafted goodies!

I made over 450 Christmas cards this year - 400 of which went to various local charities to help with their fund raising. With a bit of a push I hope to exceed that total next year but find it hard to get in the festive mood until September.

Just to finish with card to you all, made with a freebie embossing folder and bauble die from a magazine and silver bow saved off the crackers last year!

Happy Christmas everyone.

Masculine Makes ....

I was lucky enough to win these Masculine dies made by the Christina Collection from a crafting magazine. It arrived about 6 weeks ago when I was in the middle of Christmas card making, so I put them to one side. 

Now the Christmas crafting is over for this year I got them out and had a play!

They cut really nice and crisp images, and are a great addition to my ever growing collection of  dies.

So useful for those 'difficult to make for' men in your life!

Cats Galore!

I love cats and thought this birthday card covered in cats sitting, walking and jumping all over it would be suitable for another cat lover too!

I think both the cat and the square collage dies were both cheapies from China!
