My first day back at work after being ill went fine. If you don’t count all the public transport mishaps… On my way to work, I had to go to the bus stop after the one I needed to get off at, because my stop has apparently been replaced by a hole in the ground. … More A Variety of Cards
Okay, this blog theme is maybe a stretch. I had no idea how to link these three cards… The first two are arguably nature inspired – the first has flowers, the second a leaf. The third card is a bit of a stretch with its cartoon fox. But I really wasn’t sure what else I … More Nature Inspired Cards
It’s time for a new HLS CAS Challenge. Our theme for August is “Off the Edge”. As always you’re welcome to interpret the theme however suits you, though it should be clear that you’ve followed it.

If you follow me anywhere that I share my creations you may have noticed that I prefer clean and simple designs. Or perhaps it would be better to say I prefer clean designs, because they’re not always simple! Today I’m sharing three cards that fall into the clean and maybe-simple category.

There’s quite a variety between them – floral, cute, CAS… Making four cards today also gets me off to … More Sketch-Inspired Cards
The theme of today’s blog post wasn’t intentional. I didn’t exactly expect to mess up one of my cards, let alone both. But I did, and then I fixed them, so that seemed like a linking theme to discuss for them.
There have been a lot of days lately that I’ve been sharing more than one card at a time. I’ve been lucky that I’ve been able to come up with ways to connect them, because I hadn’t planned ahead to consider how to connect them in the blog posts.

I’m sharing a square card today. And look – a white card base! I found a pack of white card that was hiding, so I do have white bases to play with after all. It’s a bit lighter weight than I prefer, and is EU size not US size, but it’ll do in a pinch. … More Vellum Sakura Blossom | CAS Card
