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.

I'll be delighted if you would like to become a follower, so please leave me details of your blog, as I'd love to visit.

Willow reading recipes

A birthday card for a dear friend, Sue, who loves cooking, and is really good at it too!  This is not a colour combination I would normally choose, but was set in a challenge, so I had to give it a go.

I just love this image from Whiff of Joy "Willow reading recipes" which I have coloured with copic markers from Wendy at Stamps and Memories.  The design paper is from my stash, and the sentiment is also WOJ, as are the little strawberries.  The flowers are a mix of Prima and Wild Orchid Crafts, which I have spritzed with Glimmer Mist from Jill at The Hobby House, and the little charm and chain are from Jill too: she has a fantastic selection, so pop along and have a look.  The coredinations plain cardstock is from a Maze of Memories, who have the most enormous range of 12 x12 cardstock: far more than you could imagine possible in plain colours, plus some patterned papers too.  The photo doesn't really show the gold glitter pen by Sakura (also from Wendy), but I assure you it's there, giving just a touch of glam!

Time to get on with another card now, as another close friend has a birthday tomorrow, so I'll post that as soon as I can.  xx Jill

What an amazing job you've done with this stamp! I have it, and have never inked it up. I really must now you've inspired me! xx Jenny xx
