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.

Thank You!!

Good evening to you!! What a fine summer's day we have had today - a bit of sun and warmth at last!! Today's card was commissioned by my niece - the instructions being "a pretty Thank You card with flowers"

I started with a piece of A4 Fresh Pearl double sided card, scored in half, and cut into with Die'sire Floral Dance Fancy Edge'ables. As a mat, I used Create-a-Card A6 Daisy Dreams, matted onto a frame cut from C&C Texture Effect card (old stuff from my stash). 
I also used wide strips of pink and pearl across the middle of the Create-a-Card, along with organza and satin ribbons. The Die'sire Only Words sentiment was placed onto Essentials Circles. The flowers are Essentials Flowers for all Occasions. And I used white and pink pearls to decorate!!

I would like to enter this into:
