 This is a card that I made recently. It is stitched. I then used a butterfly die in brown card then put a dark green backing paper and cut around the outline of the butterfly to give it added interest.
 Another stitched card. This time I used a martha stewart punch for the daisy design across the middle. Then attached ribbon and gems.
 This card I have made for a lady called Sue in my craft club for her birthday.
 This easel card i enjoyed making. I really like the stitched pattern and the colour-ways seem to work well together.
 This christmas card is made using a mask and spreading sparkle medium over it. Once dried i have attached a simple greeting and matt and layered in red and gold. A simple card that looks very effective.
 I had a go at making a book card for my Dad for Fathers day. I am quite pleased with the results. The picture inside the box is made up from 2 stamps. One of the boat and one of the waves. By adding several layers of the wave stamp in shades of blue and turquoise I think i have achieved the "sea" look.  I then cut out an anchor and lifeboat image to add to the layers of the book inside.
 This is the outside of the card from above. I added corner embellishments and a ribbon so that it can be tied up and also look like a proper book.
 I was playing around with "candi" when I thought of making a fish using the "candi" as scales. Quite impressed with the result.
 Another book card with spellbinders "fleur de lis" accents motive as a border. This time I have just added a flower inside.
 The outside of the above book card.
 These cute booties were from a book called "paper sculpt sensations". I just had to make them !!!

 These two pompoms were made from small polystyrene balls. The pink and blue one is cake cases and the other is just paper flowers. Unbelievably they are the same size polystyrene balls.

 The above photos are of a Christmas style book card. Each "page" has a different backing paper and embellishment. 
 This gift box is made from paper. Doing simple folds and then joining together makes a pretty gift box.
Another gift box. This time just 3 pieces of paper to create a triangular box.
