I am sure showing a card made using a design by John Lockwood

I hope he will not mind too much if i borrow more of his exquisite designs!

very special day

My favourite style of designs from Sue Wilson here.

Tone on tone, clean, elegant.

This is done in milk and blush card.  I love everything about it.


It has been Pride day here in Brighton but I haven't left the house!!  I don't handle huge crowds very well so I  just stayed in and worked on some more cards. Xmas included!

milk and gold card for this Sue Wilson design.

Sue's striplet dies are so versatile.

Like millions of others I am using and loving the new Windows 10 on my computer,
but as yet Edge does not like to publish blogs so back to Chrome for that until it gets sorted!

treasured friend

I have been busy making Christmas cards recently and only managed a few 'usual' cards.

The charity I make for has had a big buyer again recently so I need to make them some more!

This card is a lovely sparkly Sue Wilson design, in one of her signature 'buckle' cards.

Another of Sue Wilson's more recent shares, using the weaving die in yet another way.

I used antique silver card with the pumice coloured card for a change to white.  It gives a softer look and imo goes well with silver.

Possibly a good card for a male recipient.

thank you

When i saw Sue Wilson's original of this card I was a little daunted, but when i made this I was surprised that it wasn't too difficult!   Just a lot of lovely decoration.

I got the sentiment stamp as an individual at Ally Pally.
Not having any string pearls in cream i used some distress glitter in linen on the edge of the sentiment, and used some gold paper for the flowers which i found easier to manipulate.

just a note

In Sue Wilson's original of this she used a different sentiment but it would be too large for my version so i used this one.

i don't have any silver texture paste so i mixed some gunmetal with polar white.

The thin ribbon is tinted grey with the new grey distress ink.
