Have a Super birthday!

Hi crafty friends! As you may know, I love superhero cards, so when I nabbed the Heffy Doodle Superdudes set for the recent collab with Time for Tea Designs, I couldn’t stop at just one card!

Prickly Plushies

I’ve been doing really well this year in keeping my resolution to use more of my existing craft supplies, and not to buy too much new stuff. However, I did cave and buy a few new sets from the Clearly Besotted sale last week, and I couldn’t wait to colour up these adorable cacti! (TheContinue reading “Prickly Plushies”

Seahorsin Around

I made another card using the card sketch for the current Lawn Fawn challenge, this time featuring the cutey little seahorses from the Seahorsin Around stamp set.

Do you enjoy making cards for men? I have to admit, I have to specifically address my mind to it, as most of my cards probably lend themselves to female recipients!
