I was planning to share these cards yesterday, but by the time the third one was made it was already pretty late. I do have a studio light for my photos, but they look better with natural light, which had already gone, and sorting the blog post would take a while, and I wanted to … More Adding Colour To Cards
What’s this? Another post today. (You can see the previous one here.) That’s right! I know I’ve been trying to group cards together into one post if I have more than one to share today, but I thought this one deserved its own post. I missed participating in the Build Your Stash Holiday Cardmakers hop … More Washi Stripes | Christmas Card
There have been a lot of days lately that I’ve been sharing more than one card at a time.

There’s no colouring on today’s card for the Coffee Lovers’ Blog Hop. The previous three cards have all involved using my markers. For this one I decided to leave them aside and just concentrate on stamping instead.
The first Cupcake Inspiration Challenge of the year has now been open for a week, and I’m back to share a second card I made using our colour theme. In this challenge we’re looking for projects that use green, white and brown. The particular shades of those colours aren’t too important, as long as we … More CIC 486 | Birthday Monster | Brown, Green & White
