Mother's Day is just around the corner!  Here in New Zealand we celebrate it on the second Sunday of May, which this year is 14 May.  I created this delicate Mother's Day card for my mum using the Dainty Delight stamp set and coordinating Dainty Delight Dies.

How fun is the shape of this Angled Gatefold Card?  And it's so easy to create too!

Today our nation pauses for ANZAC Day.  The poppy is a symbol that is associated with this day and it reminds us of those servicemen and women who lost their lives or have suffered in wars, conflicts, and peacekeeping operations.  We will remember them.

They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old:
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning,
We will remember them.

For the Fallen/Ode of Remembrance (Laurence Binyon)

Here is another birthday diorama card featuring the lovely Sea Turtle stamp set.  Unlike the previous diorama card, where the scene was inside, the whole of this fun birthday card is a diorama!

We recently held the first of three Hamilton Extravaganzas for this year, which featured some of the fun products from the January-April 2023 Mini Catalogue.  For the project that Fiona and I taught, we used the graceful Sea Turtle stamp set and a lovely colour palette of Mint Macaron, Old Olive, Cajun Craze, and Petal Pink.

The cross was once an instrument of torture but is now a symbol of hope and salvation.  May this miracle of Easter brighten your life with love, happiness and joy.

I am loving the variety of impressionist patterns in the Fancy Flora Designer Series Paper pack.  I paired one of the patterned papers that has a softer colour palette with the Something Fancy Bundle, Pool Party Grosgrain Ribbon, and Iridescent Pastel Gems to create this lovely encouragement card...

The fabulous and fun patterned paper from the Fancy Flora Designer Series Paper pack was perfect for creating this Tie-Back Curtain card...
