My birthday was on Sunday and I received some really lovely cards. Who would have thought!

I have wanted to enter a Just Add Ink challenge for a while. I have done a few of the challenges, however I usually do them after-the-fact! Well, this morning I was really inspired by the sketch challenge that was posted today...

Yesterday was my daughter's birthday - she turned seven. Miss-Nine made a card for her sister last week, which is really gorgeous, so I wanted to show it off here...

What are Artist Trading Cards?

At the June workshops we used the Kissing Technique for a really easy and creative way of stamping beautiful and inticate images. My lovely husband offered to do a demo...

This month is the one-year anniversary of my In-Home Workshops - the June 2009 workshops were my first card classes. To mark the occasion, Jessica (who attended my first-ever workshop) gave me this cute mini scrapbook last week.

I really love using the Two-Step Bird punch from the Autumn-Winter Mini Catalogue. However, recently I have seen it used for more than a bird! Below is a photo of two cards that use the bird wing to create a tulip. The tall card on the right is a gorgeous swap that I received from my friend Bev. I was so inspired by it, I created the easel card on the left - keeping the tulip and embossed diamond matting and changing up the colours and style.
