This is my first and very amateur attempt at a blog, mainly to show my craft creations
and sometimes have a good old rant!

Cute Card Thursday
Hello Everyone - wow, today is such a beautiful day - almost made me want to go out in the garden (but not quite (lol!)) - I really do not have green fingers or any kind of garden design inspiration, and I so wish I did. But I have been out without a coat today (yippee!!).
As I said yesterday, I am in the process of making a few cards for the Do Crafts Create a Card Campaign for Cancer Research. And I've just discovered that this week's challenge on Cute Card Thursday is Mono Mania, so I can enter one of the cards I've made.
This card is C6 size, the papers are DCWV Floral Prints Stack, and the image is Demure from Sugar Nellie (she is so beautiful isn't she?), and I've coloured her with Promarkers for skin and hair and watercolour pencils for her dress. I've also added glittery colour with Copic Spica pens. The ribbon is from my stash, the flowers were punched out and then Papermania flower gems added. And that's it - a simple card that still took me ages to create! I haven't added a sentiment - do you think I should? I'd love to know what you think!
Thanks for looking and I hope you are able to pop back again sometime!
Hi - I'm forty-something, married to Richard, and we have two fantastic children, Andrew and Eleri. My main hobby is papercrafting - mostly making cards for friends and family. I've also recently started jewellery making, and I'm addicted to jewellerymaker tv!!
I am creating this blog as a diary for myself and to showcase some of the cards or other crafted goodies I manage to make.
Thanks for stopping by - and please leave a comment to let me know you called!
