A Little Catch Up……

Hello! It seems a like lifetime since I wrote a blog post. Its been a looooong 6 weeks or so (possibly 6 months but who's counting). My laptop broke, closely followed by my mobile phone, closely followed by my tumble dryer - it's summer I know, I can dry my washing outside but it won't... Continue Reading →

Simple Birthday Cards

A few recent card makes for family and friends birthday in January. I had 3 to make and not much time so I kept them simple but fun (I hope). The first two use one of my favourite stamp sets  - Bold Pop Design stamp and die set from Hero Arts and Sizzix. The cards... Continue Reading →

Simple Birthday Card

I intended to post my illustration on Saturday (as I have for the last two weeks) but I'm still working on it so I thought I'd share a simple birthday card that I made before Christmas. It's a great one for using up little bits of patterned paper from previous projects. If you can cut a... Continue Reading →

With Love Handmade Card

We all have those cards to make that can be a bit tricky, usually it is 'With Sympathy' ones or 'Thinking of You' as the subject matter, in those cases, is difficult. Well, it is my Husband's Aunt's birthday in a few days but her birthday also marks the first anniversary of her husband's death. I... Continue Reading →

Happy Mail

A while ago the talented Cobs suggested a crafting idea that I could make with my jewellery making findings and beads and I loved it. I felt this idea was a collaboration and wanted to send her some of the finished embellishments so she could see the results for herself. In return I got the most... Continue Reading →

Watercolour Flower Thank You

Hello, I've been missing for a while. I have missed writing on my blog this week but I really like to make sure I have enough time to sit and write something coherent rather than a load of garbled nonsense. The end of a school year is always busy but it always takes me aback... Continue Reading →

Make A Wish

Hello, It's another rainy day here so I thought I'd brighten things up by sharing a recent card I made for my friend's daughter. She celebrated her first birthday the other week - what more of an excuse do I need to use my new stamp set. Who doesn't love magical unicorns?! The stamps are... Continue Reading →

Handmade Embellishments

Happy Thursday! A little while ago my lovely blog friend Cobs from The Cobweb Emporium (check out her blog to see her gorgeous makes) suggested that I could make my own card/scrapbooking embellishments with jewellery making findings and beads. I'm not one to say no to a good idea so out came my beads and head... Continue Reading →

Cake Card and More.

Hello, I thought I'd drop in between loads of laundry and school summer plays to show you my recent makes. A family member saw a sterling silver necklace I had made on my Facebook page (shameless plug for The Artisan Duck on Facebook - feel free to find me and like!) and asked for one...

Dinosaurs!

Here is a card made for my Nephew's 5th birthday. When it is a card for a family member it is always fun to make something a little more detailed although I do wish now that I had bought the matching dies - I think I spent just as much time cutting out as I... Continue Reading →
