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 - Buttons Galore

Hi everyone,

I love these little buttons by PaperMania and I thought they went perfectly with the paper I've chosen. So here is my entry for the PB Challenge - buttons galore!

Hope you're all having a great weekend in this lovely sunny weather.

Copic Challenge - apricot, blue and copper

Hi Everyone,

Hope you all had a great Easter. What wonderful weather today. I made this card this morning just before taking the kids to the beach. It was lovely and really hot and the kids really enjoyed themselves. This is the first time I have entered a card for the Copic Colour Challenge. I love using these pens so it's a great challenge for me.

Thanks for looking,

Penny Black Challenge -

Hi Everyone,

I haven't been blogging for a long time now but when I saw today's challenge I thought I would put this card on the PB Challenge. I made it a few weeks ago after I bought this stamp at the Stevenage craft show and as it has a little bit of gingham check on it I guess it fits the bill!

Hope you all have a lovely Easter and if you get a chance pop over to Gill's blog who is this month's Guest Designer, she makes some really lovely cards. I would also like to say a big thank you to Tania who left me an award back in November. Your cards are beautiful so it was lovely to get an award from someone so talented.
