When life gives you lemons…

There are two answers to this phrase - one is more 'adult' than the other. I found a card with 'When life gives you lemons grab tequila and salt' in a card shop and it made me giggle, so I bought it on impulse and it has been sitting in my 'store bought' cards pouch… Continue reading When life gives you lemons…

Hey Foxy birthday card

Disclaimer: I made this card in November 2017, but this is the first chance I've had to blog about it. I made this card for a friend who was writing her Thesis at the same time as me - our friendship has been forged in the fire of PhD hell, so we've seen each other… Continue reading Hey Foxy birthday card

SSS watercolour panel update

So I did decide what to do with the lovely SSS embossed watercoloured panel and made it into a 6x6 card with some X cut adhesive glitter sheets and the sentiment from My Favorite Things 'More Essential Sentiments' white heat embossed on a little strip of black card. To add some more texture I added… Continue reading SSS watercolour panel update

Playing with my stamp platform

Hi Everyone! I hope you're having a lovely weekend? As I posted previously this week (I've been posting a lot this week!) my Tim Holtz stamp platform arrived on Tuesday, but I wasn't able to enjoy it as I wasn't well and it was followed by two very long working days where I tend to… Continue reading Playing with my stamp platform
