Bio.
I have been drawing since a child and studied graphics at College many years ago, I now work as a Medical photographer part time but my love was always drawing. I started cardmaking about 4yrs ago when I bought my daughter a cardmaking kit which we did together, but I’m afraid I got the bug! My daughter preferred scrapbooking. I then started looking online at other blogs and this then became my passion and I loved sharing my cards with like minded people.
I love stamping and loved finding images, but sometimes I could not find what I wanted so I started to draw myself.  This then has become my second addiction and I have never looked back, I love thinking of new images, and its just fabulous to see others take them and make them into beautiful works of art. Long may it continue!

Many thanks to our generous sponsors for
their continued support.


The design team has come up with some great inspiration for you, so scurry on over  and check it out then make a card or project to share on the challenge blog to inspire us.  We love visiting you to see what you come up with.

Halloween Treats

Hi friends, trying to get my Halloween cards made so I can get them mailed out'
in time.

Hope everyone is doing well, we are enjoying the crisp Fall mornings, and
the warmer afternoons. Leaves are falling and pumpkins and Mums on
everyone's front steps.  I love Fall and all the wonderful colors.



A simple card.  The candy jar full of treats is a die from Reasonable Craft Dies (on FB).
The pumpkin is a wooden piece with glitter and yellow card stock backed.

My Mom always dumped my trick or treat goodies into a big glass bowl
and I were only allowed to take a couple pieces a day.  In a good year,it
lasted a long time.

Thanks for stopping by today.
Have a good Sunday.
Stay safe.
Until later................

BSS IDEA - FALL LANTERNS

WELCOME TO THE BUFFALO STAMPS AND STUFF IDEA


Hello friends, hope everyone is well.

I was in the store this week, and it is packed with so many new products. I was
just running in to pick up an order I placed online and spent about an hour 
shopping.  I have a pile of stamps and dies I haven't used yet, but can not
control myself when I see all the new stuff.

Fall is definitely in the air.  We have some chestnut trees in
our front yard and with the wind we have had several days
this past week, the chestnuts were falling like rain.  Now
to rake...........ugh......

So in the spirit of Fall, here is this weeks card.






I love this stamp.  I wish I could grow these fun
plants, but I have tried with no results.

Stamp-Studio Light-(WA481)
includes the inside sentiment and stamp
Sentiment on front of the card is Sugar Peas, Autumn Blessings (SPD-00469)
Water Color Paper-Tim Holtz Distress Water Color Paper
(I used the textured side) it also has a smooth side and is bright white.
I used water color paints
The die cut is a Spellbinders die.
4 tiny yellow pearls

Thanks for stopping by today
Have a great week.
Until later.........

Hi friends.  Halloween is at the end of the month.  I have hauled out my stamps, dies, and papers so I can make cards for the kids in our family, big and small!!!!

I made this card for the Annual 31 Nights of Halloween Blog Celebration at Whimsy Stamps.
I was fortunate to win the top prize of a $100 shopping spree a couple of years ago, and was such an amazing thrill and such fun to shop!

So I am entering again this year, just because it is such fun and I love their images.
