Cute Hedgehog Thank You Card Idea

Welcome to my Corner of the World

I recently learned that here, in the US, hedgehogs are kept as pets, who knew? Back in my native UK they live in the wild, visit gardens at night, eat the slugs and snails then curl up and sleep thru the winter!

I have broken out my water-colouring pencils again today, for the cutest little guy EVER, using the Walk in the Woods stamp set to create this thank you card, but as always – change out the greeting and it will make the perfect birthday or thinking of you card.

Bright and Cheerful Get Well Card Idea

Welcome to my Corner of the World

How delightful to get this bright and cheerful card in the post when you are feeling ‘not so good’. I am sure that there are many of us who know someone who has not been in the best of health, either thru the current health crisis or other issues, so having some Get Well Cards on hand is very useful.

The Healing Hugs stamp set is perfectly named and perfect for making todays’ card. I chose Magenta Madness paired with some Smoky Slate and Silver Foil for this little splash of cheerfulness.

Join Stampin’ UP! and be a part of my team

Welcome to my Corner of the World

I joined Stampin’ UP! as a demontrator in November 2010 – and have just celebrated my 10th anniversary,  it was one of the best decisions I made.  It allowed me to express my creativity using high quality, coordinating products.  It has also allowed me  to meet new people with whom I have become friends.

I believe in sharing what I do and introducing people to card crafting and seeing the joy on their face when they create their first card.  I chose to develop a business for myself but that is not a requirement, read on for some more information 🙂

Happy New Year

Welcome to my Corner of the World

January 1st 2021 – the start of a brand new year. I am not a big fan of January, I will be packing up my Christmas decorations on the 6th and it will be a while before we can look forward to spring showing all the new color and growth.

In the early part of December I had a class to create a flip over calendar, everyone loved it and made me promise we will do another later in this new year! I thought I might start each month this year by posting the page for that month, so today I share, January!

Elegant Happy Christmas Card

Welcome to my Corner of the World

Today is Christmas Eve – as my great- niece would be telling her Daddy today ‘ one more sleep until Father Christmas gets here’. I am spending my day with final preparation for tomorrow’s lunch and then settling down in front of the fire to watch some Christmas movies!

They say that less is more ~ not entirely sure I agree with that when it comes to card making but today I used a ready made card base from the Gold Cards and Envelopes Pack. It is Very Vanilla and has gold foil decoration on it, so that was my color choices decided, then a little dash of red to finish off! And, you know it was surprisingly quick to create all of the 10 cards that were in the pack!
