Not like me at all, is it? I'm rubbish at colouring, see? And not much better at cutting out... But it's my mate's birthday this weekend and she's a massive cat lover and she also loves her flowers. So I made this.

She's 29!! I used my nesties to cut out the circles, then glued the flowers and bits on. I also glued the leaves on both sides of the frame to add dimension. I quite like it, but it's not really my style. AND I sliced my cuticle in the process... no idea how!! I hope she likes it, cos she's a lovely person and I'd like to give her something lovely. TFL x

And now for something completely different! It's my friend's birthday next week and she, like me, loves all things oriental. So I had the perfect excuse to use my Waltzing Mouse stamps (Asian Gardens). Hope she likes it. TFL xx


We lost a very dear friend to cancer last week. He had been given the all-clear not 8 months ago, but it came back with a vengance and took him very suddenly. He was a great friend of my Dad and helped me through the court case and coroner's stuff and he will be very sadly missed. I chose the verse because not only will he be reunited with my Dad, but also with his son, who died suddenly a couple of years ago. His wife is a lovely lady and I wanted to make something very special for her. It started out as a good idea but I may have overdone it a bit. What do you think? TFL X

Made for my Mum to give to my cousin as she leaves for Swaziland. Waltzing Mouse stamps and lavender ink. TFL x


Which I hope means "go safely" in Swazi. Or I may have just wished her a thousand fleas in her pants! It's for my cousin, who's off to Swaziland next week to run a school for three years.

Papers are, again!, Kaisercraft. I think I'm addicted. TFL x

... so too are grandmothers. How fab is that sentiment? This card is for my friend who has just become a grandma for the first time. Papers are 'Capella' from Basic Grey, flowers from WildOrchidCrafts and pearls from my stash. Flowers and pearls!! Yay! I'm back!! Actually, it's just a bit of an indulgence - got a Bon Voyage card to do and I think it may be a CAS style card.

Thanks for looking x


You may remember a while ago I told you about my neighbour whose unborn child died very suddenly? Well, I am now very happy to tell you that they had a baby boy, Oliver John, on Thursday! He was delivered by c-section at 33 weeks and weighed in at 4lb 5oz, but he's holding his own and Mum's doing fine. So I made this for them. I hope they like it.

The papers are Kaisercraft's 'Up, up and away' again (I LOVE this stuff) and the sentiment is a rub-on from Melissa Frances. TFL xx

Another card using the 'Up,up and away' set from Kaisercraft. Honestly, these papers are so fab, the cards make themselves! Sentiment stamp is, of course, Waltzing Mouse. TFL x


FINALLY got my hands on the Kaisercraft "Up up and away" set!! The sentiment stamp was free on the latest issue of 'Craft Stamper' magazine. Thought this could be one of those 'men' type cards but I like the paper too much to let a boy have it!!TFL x

Apologies for the wonky pic - I promise I haven't tested these bottles!!! The sentiment, thought up by my Lil G, says "I whine a lot, now you can wine a little", which I thought was clever!


I've been wanting to have a go at a wine label for a while and for some reason, tonight was the night to do it. Don't know why. Feeling a bit under the weather, so I suppose it will take my mind off it!! It's a half-bottle of champers and the sentiment says "To return some of the sparkle you bring to my life". The wording is done on my pc but the gold flourishes are, of course, Waltzing Mouse. It's for my Mum. TFL x (PS Off to bed now!)
