Ma Wee Genie

Not a card this time. I am raising funds for Cancer Research UK by making and selling a bag organiser that I'm calling Ma Wee Genie (play on Scottish). I'm asking only £10 + p&p and ALL profits are going to CRUK. Pop over to my Facebook page to find out more and see the options.

It really is clever. Just pop your most used bits in the pockets, roll it up and place in your bag. Lift and shift from bag to bag with ease.

Little Princess

A card for my great niece's 4th birthday. Idea from a DoCrafts magazine. Took 3 hours mind you

For Mums 2

My Mum and Mum in Law have their birthdays one day apart, always around Mother's day. Since one lives in Cornwall and the other in Scotland it's OK to make them pretty much the same and having made one I decided I liked the look of it enough to do another. In fact, I have another two made up in two more colours.
The dies are from Spellbinders Lace Doily Motifs and Labels 22. The sentiment is from the Wishing on a Star CD by Katy Sue Designs.
For the bows, I coloured white seam binding to match. The background is stamped with Clarity Stamp Leafy Swirl. The blending is done using my trusty Inkylicious Duster Brushes.

Not having any baker's twine, I tried to make my own using a technique I found. The principal worked but the result was not brilliant as the only "string" I could find was very absorbent and the colour spread too much.
Make your own baker's twine.

For Mums

Just a couple of simple cards for Mother's Day. Same format but one modern and the other a little more traditional.
