Merry Christmas Reindeer

Hello again,

I thought I would try and catch up on making some Christmas Cards.
Do you know that there is only 121 days left until Christmas!! I cannot believe how fast this year has gone! Anyway, I brought this Reindeer stamp such along time ago and forgot all about it, so I thought I would see how a card would turn out! I have to say that I think it's a really fun card and I enjoyed colouring it in. I love their faces. Of course I had to add a little sparkle to the card or it would not be Christmas! (You can click on the card to have a closer look)

Anyway, Hope you like it?
Thank you for stopping by, Fiona :)

Birthday Cards in Black and White

Hello, I made these Black & White Birthday Cards about 6 months ago!

I thought this paper was so lovely. I added sparkles to the main flower on the card on the right ( I thought that if you clicked on the photo that you could see it properly, but I just tried it and it does not show the sparkles as well as they are in real life, they are so pretty when
you hold the card up to the light - Honestly :) - I am not sure why these pictures are not as clear as when I look at them on my computer, they are so sharp, but look fuzzy here? - Any ideas?

I love the brads at the bottom of the card on the left, I have never used brads like this before so I was not sure what to do with them, ( I had them a long time! ) I am still not
sure if I have used them in the right way. LOL - Anyway, Thank you for stopping by, Take Care, Fiona :)

Wish Big

Hello again,

I am not sure what you think, but I have a lot of trouble making cards for men, so I thought that this combination of the colour and the trees are OK? The stamp sets are from "Stampin' Up", they are called "Lovely As a Tree" (this is my favorite stamp set) and the words are from the "Short & Sweet" stamp set, the ink is also from "Stampin' Up" called Chocolate Chip. I purchased these from my lovely friend Kim Tonnet a "Stampin' Up Demonstrator". You can contact her on if you would like to order them.

Anyway, that's it for now, hope you have a lovely day, You can click on the photo for a closer look :)

Wishes and Friendship

Here are some more cards I made about two weeks ago. I love this paper. I have added some Rhinestones to the flowers to make them stand out slightly. (you can click on the photos to have a closer look).

Well that's it for now, I am off to make some more cards!

Thank you for visiting my blog :) Fiona

Jumping Frog

Hello, I have just finished these cards for a couple of friends of mine who are at home sick at the moment. I thought they may bring a smile to their faces as they both love frogs very much.

I love these colours. I think that the card on the left with the circles in the background remind me of Lilly Pads? The frog on the right and the flower on the left have been raised with dimensional foam pads to give them a lift off the the page. It looks better in real life than in the photo - Honest! Click on the photos to have a closer look. Thank you for visiting my blog, Fiona :)

Christmas Tree With Sparkles

This is the New Hero Arts stamp I have just purchased.

I just love the swirls of the tree. I have used Teal Ink Pad to colour the trees in and added some sparkles, which are a bit hard to see. I will have to get a better camera! You can click on the photo to get a closer look at them. :)

Anyway, these are my first cards on my blog, hope you like them?
