Happy birthday from the gnomes


We've a new challenge starting over at the Fairy and Unicorn Challenge blog today, which as usual lasts for about a month. I do hope that you'll join us.

The theme as always is Fantasy, however as long as it's Fantasy pretty much anything goes. If you're not sure what we mean by that just check out the guidance in the side bar on the blog. This month I've done a mix of digital crafting to produce the background and topper, than added some die cuts and a stamped sentiment. 

Card recipe

Into the woods!


I'm afraid I've not been very active here, so it's been a while since I posted, but unfortunately I've not been well. Pleased to say I'm picking up so will hopefully be posting more often.

Today's post is to let you know that we've a new challenge starting today over at the Pearly Sparkles Challenge Blog, the theme this month is something with a bird, animal or insect. My card included an owl and a rabbit so as they say 2 out of 3 isn't bad! I made it for a friend who loves nature, trees in particular, and walking in the woods. The challenge lasts for about a month and I do hope you'll join us.

Card recipe

Custom made card blank made using the largest die in the set
Tonic Mythical Glade Layering Die Set with the Wondrous Woods owl and rabbit tag insert
