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.

Finally got round to blogging the Father's Day card I made for my Dad. He loves football - and with the World Cup on at the moment, thought it would be a good theme for his card.
I used a topper from an old Kanban kit. I love the neutral tones of the image, and decided to keep it simple with browns and creams. The A5 card is made from brown card from my stash, topped with a lightweight cream textured card. The grey/brown card is a scrap I had left over from some pieces I printed from Craft Artist - can't remember the name of the digi kit - but it's one of the free ones. 

I embossed more brown with Embossalicious Dottie folder, and finished the lot of with some ribbon tied into a knot. 

A quick - but heartfelt - welcome to my new followers - both here on the blog and via Pinterest. It's great to have you here.

I'd like to enter this into:
Try It on Tuesdays - One for the Boys

Back soon.
