A very warm welcome to my blog, which is mostly about card-making, a bit about work and family, and a few odds and ends. I am fairly new to this blogging lark, so please bear with me if I make some glaring errors.

Easter cards

I entered this Easter card that I made for friends for the second month of "A Gem of a Challenge", and was really pleased to make the top five. 

The stamps (coloured with copic markers) are both from Pink Gem designs, and they are really easy to get a clear image.  The papers are from the floral set of Wild Rose Studio, and the cardstock is my favourite coredinations, which I usually get from A Maze of Memories, although I stocked up today at the show at Ally Pally.  The Nestabilities, copic markers, leaf punch and MS patp punches are from Wendy at Stamps and Memories, and the little pearls were very kindly given to me by Jill at The Hobby House.  For the daffodils, I bought two sorts from Hobbycraft, pulled them apart, and then reconstructed them: makes it a bit expensive, but I thought they were quite pretty.

A Honey and Hugs image for my eldest grand-daughter, Beth, with paper lace coloured with copics, and flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts.  The little daisy strip is actually an EK border punch, with little pearls glued with stardust Stickles in the centre of each one. Dp is from an old Papermania pad, and the leaf is an MS punch. 

Another  Honey and Hugs Easter card using Prima flowers for decoration.  This one is for middle grand-daughter, Charlotte.  The sentiment is computer generated, dp is DCWV, and is used with coredinations cardstock.

This was an Easter card for my step-grand-daughter Natalie, and her little boy, Maxwell, who is two and has the cutest smile!!
I used an old Papermania pad for the dp, and the sentiment is from Pink Gem designs.  Hobbycraft daffodils have been put together with orange brads, and the lace made with coredinations and an MS border punch.  Little daisies are again made with an EK border punch, and the little pearls are from Jill at The Hobby House.

The last of the Honey and Hugs set of cards for my grandchildren.  This one was for 5 month old Natasha, who is just adorable, and very sunny natured.  The paper lace is coredinations cardstock cut with an MS border punch, with flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts, and the little owl charm from Jill at The Hobby House.  Sentiment is computer generated.
