Polkadoodles Valentine’s cards

I was recently lucky enough to win the new Hearts & Happiness collection by Polkadoodles. I knew as soon as I saw the two adorable little stamp sets included that I wanted to make some clean and simple Valentine’s cards with them. For the first card, I cut a slimline panel, and made a pinkContinue reading “Polkadoodles Valentine’s cards”

Happy Valentine’s Day

I’d already made a card for my husband but it was a bit… pink. So, when my new Mama Elephant stamps arrived, I had an idea for a more masculine card (but still cute) card using the Wish Upon A Star set. I started by figuring out my scene and placing the stamps where IContinue reading “Happy Valentine’s Day”

Dandelion Wishes another way

I am absolutely loving this stamp set at the moment, so I thought I’d do another version with alcohol markers rather than coloured pencils.

Hey Mama… You got this

I recently sent this card to a friend of mine who needed a little reminder that she is doing a great job. I think these strange lockdown times are affecting us all, not least those of us stuck at home with children to entertain and/or homeschool, whilst trying to juggle our own jobs and managingContinue reading “Hey Mama… You got this”

Happy Birthday, River and Wynter!

One of my brilliant friends just celebrated her twins’ first birthday. An amazing milestone for any Mama, not least because she’s had to bring them up in lockdown for most of the year, with her toddler son at home, too. So, I decided to make a couple of special cards to celebrate! How cute isContinue reading “Happy Birthday, River and Wynter!”
