A card for me


My daughter made this easel card for me and my husband while we were out one morning. It is stunning. I love the colour combination of blues and browns. She has shaded and coloured in the stamps so beautifully and the whole card has been put together in such a beautiful way. Thanks Steph! I LOVE IT!!!

Mother's Day card


My mom is a beautiful, talented, successful, crafty, kind woman. I love her so much. She has the greatest sense of humour and can keep you entertained for hours. I love the hours we have spent playing Scrabble, sewing, painting, making jewelry.

I used a Lili of the Valley stamp in this card, beautiful Prima flower, Martha Stewart doilies, lace and I sewed the papers with my sewing machine for added detail.

Wedding card


This easel card was for my niece who was the most beautiful, stunning bride. It was such an incredible wedding at the Johannesburg Country Club. The food was fantastic, danced and had so much fun. The whole day was so memorable. Thanks Mel & Dudz!

I used the wedding Tilda card, some beatiful lace with beads on, lots of flowers and bling. I took apart their invitation and used pieces of the silver paper and cream paper and the green and silver voile to make it personal for them.

Birthday card for a special friend


This card is for my friend Brenda. She is such an encouragement to me to persist with something even if you don't like doing it. She is strong, beautiful, and so kind. My life is richer having Brenda in it.

I used the S.W.A.L.K. stamp. I have used my sewing machine to sew the papers together, it add some interesting detail. I love the Martha Stewart doilies which I have inked and used Stickles to enhance. I tore the papers and inked the edges.

I made this card for my beautiful daughter for her 21st birthday. I can't believe she is 21. She has grown into such a beautiful young woman. She has amazing talents, plays the violin beautifully, cooks wonderful meals and is so talented at card making and scrapbooking.

This card was for my sister for Christmas 2011. I used Copic markers to colour in the Tilda with gifts stamp, Prima roses and lots of embellishments. We had a fabulous Christmas holiday in Salt Rock with her family.
