 This card I made by creating a scene behind the doors and then adding some acetate to slightly dome the card. Then decorated using spellbinders and memory box dies.
 This stitched card I created using the pattern from Erica Fortgens book.
 This card I really enjoyed making. I had got the stamp only recently when I then bought the stitching pattern. The two just seemed to go together.
Another design by Erica Fortgens. Very nice to stitch and loved the colours of different shades of mauve.

 This shirt card I have made for my Brother's birthday in September.
This simple card looks effective because I kept the colours soft. Yellow and white look lovely together
 This christmas card was made by stitching onto a scrap piece of xmas card. I kept the design simple, keeping the colours all grey except for the red gems.
 This card was made by applying strips of very sticky double sided tape across the card. I then peeled off one strip at a time and covered with glitter before i went to the second strip. Quite an effective card- made simply.
 This card was simply made by cutting the word "snow" out of card and the decorating. Then I attached to a strip of gold with a red ribbon on and attached this to the background card. I used Martha stewart punch for the border pattern.

 I am really please with this box card that I have made. I printed off the background picture, which came from Debbie Moore, and then used my spellbinders to cut out the shape. Which I then repeated on the lid. I used a sheet of snow drop acetate to put in the aperture of the lid. Then decorated front and back of lid as well as inside the box. By keeping the decorations all in white I think it really brings out the blue of the design.
 This card i created the design. I had seen a pattern with the two paisley shapes on so i decided to copy the design , but make into a circle.
 This fun teddy card was achieved by drawing a circle on double sided sticky paper. Then peeling off the top layer and covering with glitter. I then did the same for the snout, ears and nose, but I used flower soft for the nose. I then added a ribbon and flowers and mounted the teddy onto a doily which I had inked peach.
 This penguin card I made into a rocker card by simply cutting a circle of card and folding in half. I attached the penguin to the folded card and added the poinsetta.
 This is another stitched card using a varriegted thread. i just then mounted onto blue card  and added a gingham ribbon.
 Another christmas card sewn onto a scrap piece of card. I then just added the gold ribbon and attached blue beads.
Another sewn christmas card. With a simple topper of Father Christmas.
