40th Birthday guest book

I made and bound this book for my friend and colleague Deborah for her surprise 40th Birthday party to pass around and allow her guests to write something meaningful for her.

I used a coptic stitch in sage and stamped the front of each signature with various lovely vintage images, like bird cages, a lovely filigree heart, a tree, butterfly flourish, chandelier etc.

She loved the book and has it has become a wonderful memento of the occasion for her.

Playtime with Kasha

Last weekend I enjoyed a wonderful visit to Queensland to catch up with my arty friends. During my stay with Kasha, we found time to play and made these cards using some new stamps. We thought it was time they got inky! The houses are from Crafty Individuals, the wording from Hero Arts and the the others from Art Journey. Thanks Kasha for a lovely weekend with you.

Serviette card.

These were made using a lovely serviette I came across and are my latest cards to swap with my dear US card swap pals. The disk stamps are from Inkadinkadoo and the centre letter from 7 Gypsies. With some leftovers I made an ATC using a lovely stamp from Alpha Stamps.
