Friday Sketchers Challenge

I have made this card following the sketch on this week's challenge at - Friday Sketchers

I have used the adorable "Lovey Dovey" from Squiggle Stamps, papers are from American Crafts available at the lovely new "Simply Create" Store in Alford, flowers & ribbons from stash, sentiment printed on PC

Enjoyed making this - must have a scoot about some more challenges to give my mojo a boost :)

Birthday Bumps!


Goodness me what a crazy week - lots of birthdays this month! My Granny just celebrated her 80th Birthday and my own wee munchkin turned 5 yesterday - where oh where does the time go!

A couple of photo's to share - one of the card I made for my Granny and one of the birthday girl proudly wearing her badge!

She was a very lucky girl - lots of lovely cards and gifts but the firm favourite has to be her SPACE HOPPER! She has been literally bouncing off the walls! Photos to follow!

A special thank you for all the lovely comments regarding my new venture - it means so much to me and I am very grateful for the love and support received :wub:

New Beginnings.....

Well who can believe it is already June! The last few months since my accident hardly seem real – but finally I am making steady progress. I am walking again with the help of a stick and ooooh it is good to get on the move!

I have had so much thinking time lately – not sure if that is good or not! Faced with the prospect of not being fully mobile for the next few months I made a decision that has been life changing.

Over the last few years I have been fortunate to have the opportunity to work with lots of fantastic craft products and companies – something I have been very passionate about. And so I have decided to fill the creative gap in my life with a new stamp company. It is all very exciting – and also a bit terrifying but I am very proud to show you SQUIGGLE STAMPS.

Our first range has been designed by the very talented Linda Allan. I have been close friends with Linda for many years and am delighted she has joined me on this venture. I hope to have many more designs over the coming months.

I want to say a huge thank you to my family and friends for the fantastic love and support they have shown lately – it is very much appreciated! I couldn’t do it without you!

Gulp – here’s to new beginnings!
