Exciting News and a Six Pack

Happy Monday everyone…

Some rather exciting news to share with you all this evening…. I bought the domain for my blog ๐Ÿ™‚ yipee so now rather than it being it is now just ๐Ÿ™‚


Other news this evening, I was back on Ustream with a live stream and made the following 6 Cards, thanks to everyone who popped over and kept me company whilst I crafted away in my wee shed … we don’t know what happened to Eileen… I think I put her to sleep ๐Ÿ˜‰

So the cards made were all the same size 4.25 x 3.25″ ย all with an embossed panel of 3″ x 4″ popped up on dimensional adhesive…

I did try to put into practice with the recent Online Card Class that I took with Jennifer McGuire and Kristina Werner by making 2 x of each card, 1 x masculine and 1 x feminine… so here we go…

Chevrons “his”


and Chevrons “hers”


then we have…

Polkadots “his”



and polkadots “hers”



and finally…

Floral Vines “his”



and floral vine “hers”



Thanks for popping round
