For my Sister

I've not had time recently to make cards but made this one for my sister's birthday. I used my tag making punch for the 'Sister' tag. The backing paper was a block type print and my sister looked closely and asked if I printed it myself! It's a very pretty paper and the colours are lovely.

Wedding Card and On Your Special Day Card

Here is my first Wedding Congratulatons card. I made the cake first and then decorated it before sticking it to the card.

The other card is an 'On Your Special Day' card and I especially like the colour of this card!

Sock Monkeys

Towards the end of last year I got into making these monkeys out of socks - one pair of socks = one monkey!!!! They are easy enough to make and make great gifts for kids and adults alike!!! It's very addictive and you can end up with a whole army of sock monkeys before you know it!!!

Here are a few of my 'army'!!

I have made many of these bookmarks and they are always very popular when I give them as a gift!! No two bookmarks that I have made are the same!!!

Watch with Beaded Bracelet

I love these watches. They are abit different and can be blinged up or down. I've made a few of these now in various colours with different shaped watch faces.

Camper Van

Inspired by my recent trip to Cornwall where VW Campers feature on alot of postcards and artwork I have made this card. I tried to make it less girly so that it can be sent to a man!!
