Wow! I can’t believe it’s been a whole year since I started my lil’ ol’ blog! How time flies when you’re having fun – and boy have I had fun! Since joining Stampin’ Up, I have met some very talented crafters and made amazing friendships. I was encouraged by my lovely upline, Michelle Last, to start a crafting blog …

So,12 months on from my very first blog post, after over a hundred projects and posts, I’ve had over 20,000 visitors. I’m amazed and so thankful to each and everyone of you who has taken the time to stop by and pay a visit, especially to those of you who have left me encouraging comments – I really appreciate your support.


My card to share today is a thank you gift set I made for my friend for hosting a craft party at her house last week…***


I did some stamping on the inside of the card, the envelope and made a matching gift tag too…

She seemed very happy with her gift …

Shading and colour was added using my aqua-painter …


The sentiment was stamped onto balsa wood from my stash.

All other supplies are from Stampin’ Up!


As always, thanks for dropping by today
