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.

Halloween - Penny Black Challenge


Hello Everyone,

It's been a very long time since I posted anything as I've been busy working on the Stamp Addicts Design Team assignments. Check out the Purple Zone to see my work and the other Design Team member's cards. Anyway, I was delighted to participate in this week's Penny Black Challenge as I love making Halloween cards. I really like the bright vibrant colours you can use. The Penny Black Design Team cards look great. I have only got one PB Halloween Stamp which isn't very big and not really a main feature for a card. So I thought I would adapt one of my other PB stamps to make it fit the bill! I chose this little mouse and drew a hat on it and added a few other little Halloween stamps by Daisy and Dandelion to complete the look. Here's my card... I am looking forward to spending the rest of this afternoon making some more Halloween cards for my family and checking out the other PB challenge cards. Hope you all enjoy the rest of your weekend. Bye for now, Michele x

Wow your card is fantastic! So, so clever that you've adapted a stamp, you certainly can't tell that this isn't an actual halloween stamp. Brilliant, I love it! :o) xxx

Wow, you drew this hat?! It's fabulous, as are all the little added bits to the stamp, you would never think it was without them! Gorgeous papers too! Thanks for joining in with the PB challenge this week!

Hi Michele

What a fantastic card.

I think your adaptation of your stamp is brilliant. You draw wonderfully - I wouldn't have known this wasn't a new PB stamp.

Great work.

Love Jules xx
