Hi fellow crafting friends.. I am married and have been for 18 years, we have 2 children who are 17 and 14 and getting more complicated as they get older! I love my crafting.. though mainly cardmaking, it keeps me busy and off the (high)street, apart from our local craft shop where I am a frequent visitor. I have been crafting for about 6 year, it started with putting a few cut out easter eggs on some cards for people and just grew to what it is now, I have taken over the dinning room, garage and I have the cupboard under the stairs to.. one day I hope to convert the garage into a proper craft room. We live in Leicestershire but are orginally from Exeter in Devon. We moved here after a short stint in Bedfordshire but have been here for 8 years in October, its the longest we have ever been in one place for! My husband is an aircraft engineer but I dont really share his love of metal flying machines! Just cars and crafting!

End of march and into April we go!

March is nearly over and we go into April and Easter and all the chocolate that is eaten and the cards we make.. one big event in my calendar is our 18th wedding anniversary this month and thoughts of what inspiration I need to make an anniversary card.
These are just a couple of cards I have done in the past.

Anniversary Cards

I was asked to make a 60th wedding anniversary card for a blind person and his wife. It had to be special and had to be tactile. I had thought about this card for ages, it was really perplexing me and then my friend (Jackie) saw a card make on the TV and I thought that it was perfect for what they wanted.
After another friend saw the card she wanted one for her inlaws 50th wedding anniversary.. this was a little easier to do and the result was well recieved, I have yet to find out what they think of the 60th card!

Flippin men/flippin woman cards

I am not big on decoupage but I did one of these and now I am hooked.
I did one for my father in laws birthday and then did one for my sister in laws cousin (which I didnt take a picture of and should of) and now I have just done the barbeque one for my Godmothers husbands birthday, they are thoroughly addictive.. I advise anyone to have a go!

More Birthday cards

This is a Chocolate bar birthday card made for an order, and
perfect for any choco-holic, made this one for a man!

Mothers day cards

Its that time of the month again when we honour our Mothers, Mother in laws and Godmothers,I am lucky to have all three!

Birthday cards

I have been doing alot of birthday cards recently, so I thought that I would add the ones I am really pleased with.
