Luke's Get Well Card

I challenged myself to make a get well card for my nephew by working with colours and ideas different to those I would normally choose.  Overall, I was happy with the result.

Tilda Cards - so far

I love Magnolia stamps (from Sweden) and especially love colouring the image with Copic Markers.  Tilda (the girl) stamps cater for everything i.e. wedding, flower girl, ballerina, travelling, ethnic, at the beach to name but a few.

Edwin (one of Magnolia's male stamps) also 'stars' and will be coming soon in future projects - the wedding stamps are simply fabulous.

Spellbinder cards - days gone by

As this blog is reasonably new, but my love of paper crafting is not, I have decided to add a few of my past creations over the next few days
