Playing with punches

I spent Saturday afternoon having a bit of a play in the craft room and made this using 4 punches. Another very quick easy card to make

Notepad holder

I made this little notepad holder yesterday with magnets on the back for a friend, it was quick and easy to make and again uses those little scrappy bits up that we all love to save

The quickest card I know how to make

This card is one of my alltime favourites as its so quick and so easy to make. I usually have a few of these made up and then just add the words to the bottom as needed. The layout is suitable for a sympathy card (I hate making those) or a birthday card etc. Suits male and female as it always well received when I show it at an in home demo.

The colour is also my favourite (elegant eggplant)

Microscope card

Today as promised I finally made a card using a product more likely to be used in the lab. I took a microscope slide and some water colour pencils, a bottle of crystal effects and some hodge podge from Stampin' Up. This stamp is my all time favourite and has become well used over the years.
If you would like to know more about how to make this card please do feel free to email me on This card was made predominately one handed (may take up wall papering in my spare time) as I am waiting for the results of an xray to see if I have broken my collarbone (I foolishly fell over in a doggie dug hole last Wednesday whilst feeding them). No animal was however harmed in the making of this card.

Please feel free to leave a comment on the card or if you like my stupidity on not taking a torch with me to feed the dogs and for not knowing how long the security light would stay on

Happy crafting,
