It’s crazy to think that I took a two month break from crafting, and now I’ve posted three days in a row – and twice today! Even before I got sick I hadn’t been posting regularly.

I timed my return to card making pretty well – I’m just in time for the Coffee Lovers Hop! I always enjoy playing along with this hop. It’s always such a fun time, and Amy is a gem for all the work she puts in to organising it.
We’re well into our current Cupcake Inspiration Challenge, and I’m sharing a second card (the first is here) for our reminder post. This colour challenge is pink, pale blue and mint, inspired by some floral cupcakes. A perfect combination for Spring! My second card, like my first card, is a floral birthday design.

I’ve been thinking for a while that I’d like to try drawing and painting (freehand) more. It’s not something I’m very confident in, but I love the idea of it. I started by trying to paint some lemons and it was a complete disaster… As tempted.as I was to give up I instead flipped the … More Adding Simple Detail to Stencils | Lovely Floral Birthday | Video
Are you the kind of person to tear into a wrapped present, or do you prefer to painstakingly peel it open? I try to be careful but sometimes I can get impatient! When I am careful enough to open the wrapping nicely I like to keep the paper, but I don’t always know what to … More Reusing Gift Wrap | Personalised Thank You | Video
Sympathy cards can be difficult to make, but the Love From Lizi June kit had lots of great elements for them.

I’m a little late sharing … More Patterned Paper Cards | Love From Lizi Card Kit June 2019 | Video
