This weeks cards are a lesson in Layering! The paper collection I used here is called Juniper and Sage, by an Australian company called Uniquely Creative. This paper collection had lots of interesting text blocks that I could fussy cut as well as flower and leaf images. On the second card I did a little stenciling, and on the third card I used a great script stamp. I havent been doing so much creating this week, I’ve been preparing my card boxes ready for the June fair. I like to do that early so that I can see if I need to make any specific cards. I may have to make some more Male cards, luckily I have just received my Mintay Garage paper collection so will start on them next week! Til next time, stay safe!

More Wandering down the Garden Path..
I have used a few bits and pieces on a couple of these cards – ribbon, bling, lace and die cuts, but i like the bottom card which is just the papers ( uniquely Creative Garden Path) I love the idea of layering up old pallets for garden beds!In my Garden this week I have been picking Tomatoes, beans, and plums and planting lettuces. Its been a very mild week weather -wise here so some things are taking longer to ripen but we get there in the end! Til next time, stay safe…
Last of the Christmas makes.. a little late!
Here are the last few Christmas Cards! The first four ( my favourite) are made from a collection called December to Remember by Uniquely Creative. I fell in love with the little gnomes, and have kept some to peek out of next years Christmas makes. The last three are made from A very Vintage Christmas collection, also by Uniquely Creative. Last year was very emotional and stressful, and I had to be so many things to so many people that I didnt’ have any time for me. This year it is my commitment to myself to make time to sit for at least half an hour a day and craft. Everyone benefits from me taking a little time out! So far , so good and I have lots of cards already waiting to show you. Thank you all for being patient and sticking with me! Til next time, stay safe …

I hope you all had a lovely day yesterday, and my american friends are staying as warm as they can . Stay safe, til next time xx
The last few Mintay Christmas ..for now…
Here are the last few cards I have made with Mintay Merry little Christmas paper collection. I have only added a little ribbon and lace and some silver mirror card. Great collection for simple easy to post christmas cards! These last few weeks , in between rain showers we have been expanding the vegetable garden. We have a shadehouse, seed raising pods, and a couple more beds, all ready for spring planting, so the cardmaking has slipped to the back burner, but now that the garden is ready for vegetable production I should be able to get back to the craft table. I havent completely stopped though. I have been colouring in the evenings while watching tv, it’s so very relaxing and something I need just now!
Til next time, stay safe!

Dads 90th Birthday card
One card this week! It is a very special card because it was for my dads 90th birthday. He is an avid reader and his birthday present included some books so I made him a bookmark, with a special vellum pocket on the second panel of the three panel card to pop it in. Everything I have used, including the bookmark die and tassels come from Uniquely Creative. The paper is from a collection of theirs called The Story Garden. Next week ..more cards made with this collection… I hope you have all had a safe, and happy Easter..til next time , stay safe..
