Sail Away....!

A friend asked me to make a crd for him for his wife's 30th; when I asked what she liked etc to get an idea of what to put on all he could come up with was sailing as they have a boat - had to think about it for a while but thanks to a Magnolia stamp I came up with this [and apparently she loved it, phew!]

Another 60th Birthday

Another commissioned card for a 60th birthday; I was advised that the lady it was for likes holidays so I used two images from the Tilda 'Bon Voyage' collection and used a 'Ticket' tag for the sentiment to tie in with the travel theme.

My Poor Neglected Blog....

Well I thought moving house would mean my blog, and card-making in general, would be neglected for a while but didn't think it would be for this long! Thanks to BT being the most useless company I have ever had the misfortune to deal with I have had to wait 40, yes 40, days and nights for my landline to be installed and thus have not had internet access at home.... Finally got it installed last weekend and then over the last week I have had revision to do but now - internet working, study over [for now at least] so I can pay some overdue attention to getting my blog up to date. I have made a few cards since I moved house, though, and will now try to remember how to upload the pics on here!!!
