AS you may or may not know I will be of on Holiday tomorrow. No internet access as I am going to indulge myself in my second love painting. So I am of to Croatia tomorrow for 1 week. Back to England and of on another jaunt. Celebrating my Aunts 90th Birthday, seeing my daugther, spending time with my sisters and brother and then staying with my sister in law and back home on the 14th May. Have fun crafting.

Spring Time Assortment

This is my new design, Flowers from Granny Art and the CU Template from Dizzy Designs


I use Kaleiedoscope to make the base and frame around the flowers. I use CS2 to put everything together and the Sentiments. You will be able to purchase the design from cardmakingdownloads. There are two different bases and 2 envelopes so it makes it a bit of a mix and match set.

Card of Aces for Fathers Day

This card I have designed with Fathers Day in mind But I know it will do for other occasions if I change the sentiment. I am getting really hooked on the Double Twisted Easel Card it is so simple to make. The sentiment reads. Your Ace Dad Happy Fathers Day. I made this purely in CS2. The decoupagae sheet can be bought from cardmakingdownloads. Look for Susan Slogrove designer

Mermaid Scollope Decoupage Shell Card with Envelope

This is my latest card design. Granny Art has the Mermaid I made the backing sheets in CS2.

I saw the image that Granny had made and liked it but was not sure how to use it. Then I was sitting having a cup of tea and an image of a card came into my head with the mermaid on it.

I made a tag to secure the mermaid to the shell. I also decided to print a backing sheet on the card first then turned over and printed the shell on the other side so the card is patterned on both sides. I hope you like it
