Pet sympathy cards, so not my fave to make…

Luckily for me, this card is being made for the sake of it, rather than for an ‘occasion’, it’s so much easier.  This is the ultimate of CAS, but with sympathy cards that’s the way I usually like to go.  Anyhoo, I used both the cat image and the border from the Penny Black  feLINE die to create this , really a very very easy card to create.

Layered Patterned Paper Piecing!

Day 5 and time for me to tackle Layered Patterned Paper Piecing with Dimension, reminds me of the old Paper Tole days.  I’m having a blast hanging out with my parents, just fitting a little card making in around the cuppa’s and shopping expeditions lol.  I’m also getting some design advice from my Mum who is uber talented when it comes to any kind of craft (and I mean any), she is incredible!

Time for a new challenge at AnnaBelle Stamps!

Welcome  back for a new colour challenge at AnnaBelle Stamps.  I thought these colours screamed for flowers but after looking at them a little longer…  they would also be perfect on a Christmas design too.


This card was supposed to be a OLC (one layer card) but alas after a little ink mishap….  on the very first stamp I ended up paper piecing the bird, so maybe it’s a OL’ishC.
