One of the very first stamp sets I got when I started crafting was Altenew’s Wild Hibiscus stamp set. Like most of my stamp sets I go through phases with it. It’s been quite a while since I last used the set though, so I figured it’s about time I do something with it! The … More Birthday Hibiscus
It’s time for another colour challenge over at CAS Colours & Sketches, where I am guest designing this month. The colours this week are pink, peach and blue, and I used them for some no-line watercolouring.
I made a lot of cards in the lead up to Christmas, and have made a fair few more since during my time off work. As a result I have almost entirely run out of white card bases. I think I have one left. Just one. I am also out of the card that I … More What’s Up Gnomie?

I feel like I have wedding on the brain at the moment! I spent a large chunk of yesterday working on some thank you cards that will be a wedding present. I made a wedding card today, and have plans for another one tomorrow. And a week today I’ll be in England in readiness for … More Wedded Bliss – SSS Blissful Card Kit
