Been making samples...

Had a lovely few hours this evening making samples to show off Kirsty Wiseman's new CD. "Call of the Wild" airs on Create and Craft on 19th July at 9.00am and I will show some tiny sneak peeks in the lead up.

Here's the CD cover and there is loads on it - I love, love, love the animals!

Happy Father's Day

It's Father's Day and I always have a struggle making male themed cards. Had some inspiration this time from The Daring Cardmakers ( and here's the first card that Harry has given to his Dad:

The design is from a challenge sketch, which I rotated 90 degrees, and papers are from Kirsty Wiseman's Colour me Crazy CD - she has designed some fab male themed papers in colours that I love working with.

The Daring Cardmakers challenge blog has some lovely prizes from Sarah's Cards ( and Nikki Sivils ( - her designs are beautiful. Why not have a go yourself?

Also made a card for FIL:

And one for my Dad too:

Dug out my Craft Robo to create a series of cards to say "Thanks" as Harry is constantly getting beautiful presents.

I wanted to make a card to enter into the Which Crafts? one colour challenge, so used Inkscape to weld the Thanks message (black) and the papers are Basic Grey (green).

More details about the challenge can be found here:

Here are the tags I made for the swap, which has a "time" theme:

Have managed a couple of hours crafting today while the boy has a nap and have made a few cards - here's a really simple one made with my Tonic butterfly punch:
