I hope you're all well.
I was asked to make an extra special 21st birthday card for a girl who likes fashion. I have to say, that I am very pleased with this card- although I wouldn't make too many the same, as I've burned through a large amount of stick on gems!!!

As usual, I'm up to my neck in commissions. I am currently working for Michelle Marsden at Red Hot Bed alongside the projects I do for Crafter's Companion.
I thought I would share with you a set of Thank You cards I was asked to make. There is a charity that I help which trains dogs in bio-detection. They can be trained to find cancer and recognise when a diabetic needs to take their medication and give a warning, among other things. I am an emergency foster home, so I help out by looking after the puppies when the need arises. The dog I'm currently fostering is a labrador puppy called Dizzy. He is the calmest and most loving dog I have ever had and it's going to be hard seeing him go in a few days!
The local charity co-ordinator asked me to make some thank you cards using a dog image, so I naturally thought of the Wild Rose Studio puppy stamp. I used a variety of thank you stamps and some background paper from the Popcorn Bear CD ROM.
I hope she likes them!

It's been way too long since I last posted on my blog. Like many people, we are struggling in the recession, so I've been taking on alot of extra commissions lately.
I am pleased that I found a bit of 'Me' time to make a card for Dulcie's November Sketch challenge, that can be found at the Wild Rose Studio blog I was a bit stumped by the sketch to start with, but once I got going, I was pleased with the results!
I have used the 'Louis with Heart' stamp, along with some background paper from the Wild Rose spring CD ROM. The punched flowers were crumpled & flattened out again to add some dimension.
Please go along to the blog & have a go at the sketch- I'll be looking at all of your versions!!
