About Me

Cape Town, South Africa
Thank you for visiting my personal Blog. I have been making cards and other forms of art work for about 8 years. My creative side only showed itself in my late 30's. I have a passion for anything to do with card making and paper. I enter my own world and never like to follow the rules. I will try anything and everything on my creations, I am crazy about flowers. They hold an innocence which can never be bought. Other interests include....... Parchment, Decoupage, Paint-crackling, Crochet and Knitting. I am a married to a wonderful man who supports me all the way and encourages me in what I love to do. We have been married for 19 years and we have one daughter. She is my world.

Hello everyone,
Hope you had a great week. I have been very busy making up some stock for a shop I supply with cards.So I have decided to post some everyday in a sort of color theme.  Its Sunday the weekend is drawing to a close and I have a another busy week so I have  dedicated today to making  more stock. On some of the cards I have used the same backing and change the other items on the cards. Enjoy. " The Pink Range"

Thank you for visiting my blog & leaving comments, I hope it inspired you to do that something special for someone. Nothing is nicer than receiving gift or card made with love.Have a great week and I hope you'll pop in again.

Keep you coffee tin seals the metal seal that keeps the coffee fresh. Use it to punch out items that you can use on your projects. This also sharpens your punch and keep them going for a long time.

This card I made during the week, a friend of mine is going to a very posh Black and white wedding she wanted flowers. I chose the roses and to break the color I added the silver what notes and some pearls just to add some interest. The blank space at the bottom is for the couples names which I will do in calligraphy.
Hello everyone
