Just a quick post to show the card I just finished for my colleague who is an avid crown green bowler. I’m really pleased with how it turned out and glad my gutter brained colleagues couldn’t come up with a smuttier sentiment:


Its a stepper card so I made smaller bowls for the background to try and create perspective:

Limited Supplies

Kristina Werner set herself the challenge of using only the items on her desk and made this lovely washi tape card (left).

Well, I don’t make as many cards as she does so my desk is pretty empty but I did like the diagonal washi tape idea so I had a go for myself (right)

Its only diddy and its a lot more pink that the image suggests but as my washi tape was a free gift, I didn’t have a lot of choice over the colourscheme!

Anniversary Entanglements

I am pretty ingenious, even if I do say so myself.

Its my parents wedding anniversary tomorrow. I’ve moaned, whined and complained often enough that they just about know better than to bring a shop bought card into the house, so of course they both asked me to produce a card for the other… which got my brain whirring – could I create two cards that would somehow coordinate with each other? Of course I could!

My dad is an avid jigsaw… um, putter-togetherer and when he has one on the go, we generally all end up having a go so the theme of jigsaw pieces became my starting point:



“To my puzzling husband” – you can take that however you like!

And where is the genius-ous-ness, I hear you ask? Here:


Pretty clever, huh? <huffs on nails and rubs against t-shirt>
