May Birthday


This is a special post as my daughter's birthday is on May 7th but due to
certain circumstances I had to send her her card early.

I have once more used Graphic 45 Time to Flourish and very happy with the outcome!
These papers are awesome!

Thanks for looking and happy crafting!

Birthday card for my friend Viv L


The Graphic 45 Time to Flourish has been a wonderful stack for me to work with
and I am not even half way through.
Here I have a card I made for a special friend.  Her birthday was yesterday and I am sure
she has received it by now.

Had to keep it  flat for posting.

What I used:

Graphic 45 'Time to Flourish' 8x8"  & 6x6' paper pad.
Spellbinders die: Fancy Labels Tag 4
EK Floral punch.
Manilla Tag

Thanks for looking & happy crafting.

Fairy Fun


Recently I bought Graphic 45 Once Upon A Springtime and shared it with my friend
as we both have grand daughters who love Fairies.
I saw a box made up on the G45 Blog by Solange Marques and fell in love with the design
so thought it would make a lovely birthday present for my 9 year old grandie.  There is quite a
lot of work to it but then I do have until June 1 to complete it.  In the meantime I have made
up a birthday card for her.

I have used:

Graphic 45 'Once Upon a Springtime' Collection and fussy cut some elements
Spellbinder Dies: Sprigs
Punches: EK Leaf, Carl Mini Sakura which fitted perfectly over the printed flower.
Liquid Pearls.

Thanks for looking and happy crafting!

Hugs & Kisses


Well, I will let you into a little secret - It's our 40th Anniversary today!  My husband sent me
a beautiful card over the net with the most sentimental inscription - he really has a way
with words!

Here is the card I made

The designer papers are from Graphic 45 'Time to Flourish', the design is from
Gloria Stengel (designer for G45) with a few of my own little touches!

Thanks for looking and happy crafting!

April Birthday Card for Lyn W


I made this card for my Dil's mother whose birthday it was yesterday (so now I can add it to my blog)!
Yes you guessed it - I have used G45 papers 'Time to Flourish'.  The papers are so beautiful and 
so much can be done with them.  I have another lovely card for a friend who has a birthday this
month but I will only show that later in the month.

I was very happy that she loved her card!

Thanks for looking and happy crafting!

Good Luck


I joined a Free On line Tag class using Graphic 45 'A Time To Flourish' Papers

This stack gives 2 sheets of paper for each month of the year and is really beautiful but what
am I going to make with it?  I don't want to make tags only cards.  The lessons are easily
converted into cards which I have done with mine.   I have used the March papers, which 
 has a St Patrick's Day theme and as I am not Irish or have any Irish friends I used it to 
practise.  I have virtually case'd the design from the January lesson.

Thanks for looking and happy crafting.
