Mad Dog

These delightful doggies remind me so much of our last dog, she was an extremely naughty beagle named Indie, we did love her and she let a huge hole in our lives when she passes but boy life was certainly never boring with her

Summer Hop Week 1

I have teamed up with a number of other Cardmakers on Instagram to participate in the summer hop. This involves producing a summer themed card every Friday throughout July. Here is my first contribution. When I think of summer I think of long days playing in the park and the surrounding fields on my bike so felt this was quite fitting


I have never managed to come up with a scene for this little fairy before, but this misty arch is just perfect adding to the magical illusion 

Camping Dad

I have been so excited for my new My Favourite things to arrive but life has been a little hectic, trying to get the garden sorted out so I literally just have not had two minutes to play. But of course Fathers Day is nearly here here in the UK, so I had the perfect excise to create a card

T4TD Swap

I signed up to take part in the Time For Tea Designs Card Swap on Facebook, my recipient has received her card so I can now share

Then I had a big on a mental block on the sort of card I could send and eventually came up with this idea

Shake Your Tail Feathers

Fancied a change from drawing trees so thought these fabulous birds could do with a lovely garden to relax in. That one on the perch looks like he is quite enjoying the sunshine.

Summer vibes

Imagine walking through this beautiful walled garden in the warm sunshine, listening to the birds chirping and the bees buzzing. 
The perfect happy vibes 

Duck Race

We once stayed in a lodge owned by the Forestry Commission and they had a rubber duck race on the river that flowed through the forest. It was great fun, made even more hilarious by the organisers mad Labrador pup which swum down the river with the rubber ducks and every time it caught one it throw it out of the river, onto the shore. The organiser was charging down the bank lobbing them back in. This card made me laugh when I remembered the race

Crafty Purple Frog sneak peak

I was honoured to be asked to participate as a guest designer for the new release from Crafty Purple Frog which is available on the 30th. A small number of the complete collection are avaiable to pre order from today. You can find them here

Today is the first day of our sneak peeks which we are celebrating with an Instagram hop, so be sure to check it out as there is a great prize up for grabs

No line colouring

After watching a YouTube video by Mindy Baxter of My Creative Scoop who does the most amazing things with her Copic markers I was inspired to attempt a no lines colouring card

Happy Mail

I decided I would attempt to create a scene using my cute critter stamps. I am finding it very easy now to do them for the more human type of stamps. So why not the critters?


 We had a period where we had to watch the trolls on a near daily basis and this little creature reminds me of Princess Poppy. For those that do not have young children please do not worry you are not missing out...


Did you love the Dodgems as a kid? I used to love when the fair came to town as I was all for them. So was my brother, my other brother and sister though, nope they hated them with a passion

Todays card has been created by changing one of the stalls from The Greeting Farm Digital Carnvial set into the Dodgem house. This was incredibly easy all I did was crop the image so the front of the stall below the opening is missing.

The Greeting Farm Holiday Anya 8

Every Christmas when I was a little girl I got a new dress to wear for Christmas Day. This is a tradition that I followed with my little girl. She does not want one this year as she doesn't think she will get to go anywhere to wear one. This makes me sad and she will be getting a nice top and jeans so she can still dress up a little but doesn't feel like it is wasted. 

This holiday Anya reminds me of our special Christmas dresses.

These were glued onto a black Slim line card base

The stitched die was used on the white Pearlescent card to gove the stitched bottom before being cut with landscape dies

The sentiment reads 'snowball kisses' it is difficult to read in the photo and was blended with Chipped Sapphire

The tiny sprigs of holly were placed in the top corners
