About Me

My photo
I'm a part-time primary school teacher, who started papercrafting 8 years ago, when I had a fancy to make my own Christmas cards. Since then, I have tried all sorts of techniques and styles - and I kind of like them all. So my work is very varied, which keeps me interested - and my crafty stash growing!! As well as cards, I love working with boxes and canvases - and I'm always seeking inspiration for new projects.

Butterfly blues ....

This is quite late for my second post of the week - so just a quick one today. This card was for my niece's 17th birthday.  I started with a white, square base card from Craftwork Cards (just smaller than 6x6). The brown card is from a DCWV 6x6 Naturals self adhesive Mat Stack and the Kraft colour card is Papermill (Buff). I embossed a piece of Creative Expressions Coconut White card with my Grand MBossabilities folder. 
The edge of the light blue Bazzill card was cut with a Spellbinders Classic Triple Scallop Edgeability die. The dark teal-coloured texture-effect card is from Create and Craft. The topper is Hunkydory, and the swirls were cut from the teal and Kraft cards with Spellbinders Floral Flourishes. The lettering is from my XCut Rome Alphabet Die - and the finishing touches are a little bit of thin, white satin ribbon, and a lovely old wooden button from my stash.

Before I sign off, I've had another little win! The little boy's card I made for my Man's World Challenge won me another challenge over at Send a Smile For Kids - so there's another little badge over there on the side!! Seems like I'm on a roll!!
