Hi all
I hope you have all recovered from the New Year festivities.  Have to say mine was very quiet but good.  I saw the New Year in and then, I'm afraid went off to bed.  Can't cope with these late nights!  Anyway I've made the most of being quiet and made a few cards - sent off some thank you cards and started playing with some kits I bought last year.

This card used the Jayne Netley Mayhew CD which I absoutely love.  The variety of designs are brilliant.

This was a new stamp set called Basket of Flowers which can be seen at These are a set of 5 stamps and you just repeat stamp in different colours.  Very effective and idea for quick little thank you cards.

This one used the easel style card which Anita did.  As Anita said it is simple but different again.  The two toppers and background papers were from Redhotbed which came with a window kit I'd bought from Create adn Craft.  I thought this was quite a nice valentine's card without it being too sloppy! I don't 'do' sloppy!!

Now this one was from Kanban Patchwork Collection which I bought from QVC.  I love Kanban - the card is so good and the characters are great.  I bought some stamps with Christmas characters and am very pleased with them.   This card I've made with my grandson in mind - he's only one year old, but I thought he might like it anyway.  The card opens up and you can see into the carriage:

and there are two of the characters.  Cute isn't it?

Right I'm off for now.  I'll be back later with more chat.  Bye xx

I have seen them on so many inspiring blogs that I have been hopping on and really enjoyed making the ones I had done, def think I shall be making some more this year!
