Sister's Oriental card

One of my sisters had her birthday on Tuesday. This is the card I made for her using Oriental Match-Its. The lilac backing paper is one I found online somewhere. I've introduced my sister to card making so she will have looked at it very closely to see what I'd used! Hope you had a good day Audrey.

A7 swap

I recently joined a new swap on

We decided to try our hands at making an A7 card - it's a bit bigger than an ATC. I've always struggled with ATCs but thought I'd have a go.

The backing paper was free from a magazine. I stamped the image and watercoloured it using Derwent pencils. I enjoy watercolouring, why I don't do more I don't know!

Blog watch!

I've been catching up and the blogs I follow and have come across some scrummy blog candy at

It's one of my sister's birthday today so if I was to win I'd just have to share the candy with her - wouldn't I? But with over 300 entries I don't think there's much chance of me winning.

Card Competition

I entered a card comp in February. It was run by Fee over on
She provides the papers and you have to follow certain rules. This time there had to be at least one button.
I forgot to take a photo of the inside but it's an 'exploding' card. The insert is a bit like those paper things we used to play with as kids. The one you put your fingertips into and opened and closed the them. Do you know what I mean?
I didn't win but I came second!!! My prize was to pick a CD rom from her website to the value of £15.99. I have a lot of her CDs but found one that had passed me by so I picked 'Girly Girly'. can't wait for it to come.
