Welcome to my Blog!

Hello Crafters! Crafting is my escape into my own little world full of ideas. Some of my best creations are produced in the early hours of the morning out of my craft cupboard …. hence ‘Open all hours’. Plus, as I have three lovely small children, often, evenings, weekends and late at night is the time when I can concentrate on making cards.

Penny Black Challenge - Summer

Hi Everyone,

This is my first challenge for ages. The summer theme has worked out just great for me. My nephew has asked me to make him a thank you card for his friends parents for taking him on holiday with them. So here it is for this weeks Penny Black Challenge. Also a big thank you to Victoria for my award and your nice comment. Plus congratulations on the birth of your gorgeous little boy.
