Stampers Anonymous Blog Hop #12

This month the Blog challenge was to use the colours Lovely Lipstick, Granny Apple Green and Night of Navy as the main card colours. We could use Whisper White or Basic Black as well.  I ended up making three very different cards! Most of my inspiration comes early in the morning when I waken up. […]

Beautiful Friendship

I recently bought this stamp set ‘Beautiful Friendship’, as I was inspired by some cards I found on Pinterest and could see lots of possibilities. These cards are all #simple stamping that I created for a customer. The hydrangea is a distINKtive stamp and looks so effective. I used Highland Heather, Lovely Lipstick and Granny […]

This month we were given the challenge of making a card based on a sketch. I decided to use the ‘It’s starts with Art’ bundle for this. The colours were a little outside my comfort zone, but there is nothing like stretching yourself!!! I used Calypso Coral  as the base and added some of the […]

Horse Sampler

I have been teaching piano for many, many years and one of the most difficult things is saying goodbye to students whom you have taught for 13+ years.
