Happy new year!

Happy new year!

2011 has arrived, and already the year has begun at one hundred miles an hour.  Christmas saw me enjoying time with family, and tucked up with the flu in equal measure!  January has brought with it a new attitude to diet and exercise (I am adamant that this will continue .... but it is only January the 10th, so i will reserve a formal statement on that!), rain and a bitter cold wind, and a more structured attitude to work.  

Long may it continue!!

This week I have been working on a custom wedding card for a customer who has a passion for nature, she loves natural fibres, buttons and brown paper, and I wanted to reflect this in the card I made for her .....

The card uses a card blank of white card stock measuring 5x5 inches, East of India ribbon, Sizzix ornate label #3 die and quickutz love bird die.   I finished it off with blue wording- 'With Love on your wedding day' and faux stitching.  Its a bit of a theme with my latest work!

Also this week I have begun work on the cupcake heaven range, which will be available to order from my website in the near future.  


The sweet birthday wishes card uses October Afternoon's egg basket paper, and stamps that have been embellished with half ivory beads, glitter and green pen, and inch thick white organza ribbon.  I LOVE this card!  

Another possible card for the line is this cute and simple trio of stamped cupcakes, with red gingham ribbon and again, faux stitching, with the wording 'Have a break, have a cupcake'.

Cupcakes are some of my favourite things!  And I'm enjoying working with the designs, and finding a style for the range.  I'd be interested to hear your feedback on the designs you like best!

Thanks for stopping by, have a lovely week. 

Until next time

Bye X
