Snowy Family

The background of this card is made using See D's stamps. The snow family is a stamp I borrowed from my mum! I shouldn't really say it, but I like this card.


The reindeer names stamp is a Hero Arts stamp I bought this year. Of all the Christmas cards I have made so far, this is my hubby's favourite.

Christmas Village

This card is made using 2 stamps I had forgotten I had!

Pink Christmas


Not my normal Christmas colours, but I think the Black and White is quite effective.

Black & White Christmas

It's been half term this week and I have struggled to come up with ideas for Christmas cards that I so desperately need to get making! This is the first I made that I am quite pleased with.

My Favourite ATC

I made this ATC during a Make and Take weekend at Topaz Crafts with Leonie Pujol.

A Hearty ATC


A colleague was 60 recently and as she's a huge Bingo fan this card fitted the bill!

ATCs I have made for a seasonal swap I am involved with.

Autumnal Cards

Two cards I made recently for an Autumnal swap I am taking part in during October.

Girls Only

This is a card I made recently for my 19 year old niece. She secretly entered it into a competition and it won 3rd prize!! Visit here for more cards.


Glue Stick Embossing

My new favourite technique - embossing with a glue stick. Instead of using an ink pad to emboss on - use a glue stick. It gives a great textured effect.

My first update for quite a while!

I have recently discovered ATCs (Artist Trading Cards). ATCs are small cards (2.5" x 3.5") that are traded between crafters. I am part of ATC swaps on Shopping Telly and Do Crafts at the moment. If you would like to swap with me my contact details can be found over on the right hand side or in my store here by clicking on 'My Complete Profile' on the right.

Pot of Flowers

This was a card experiment that turned out quite well. It is made with Quickutz flower dies and strips of green card for grass/leaves.

March 2006

I've eventually got round to posting more cards that were made during February/March. My own personal favourite is the First Birthday box card. It was copied from an article in the magazine Crafts Beautiful. Visit my store over on the right (run your mouse over the words 'my store' to make the link sparkle) to find out what's inside the box!

January 2006 - Various Cards

January is very nearly over, thank goodness! I always find it a long, depressing month after the festivities and fun of December.

Today is the first Sunday I haven't been standing on the sidelines watching my 13 year old son play football. He plays for Blackburn Eagles and last Sunday they completed their league programme and managed to win the league - unbeaten all season.

So, with a long, lazy Sunday ahead of me I managed to get round to making cards. Some of the cards I have made are featured in Deb's Shop. You will find the link to this page over on the right. On the left alongside this post is a card I made for our school cook who retires on Tuesday.

Hi I'm Debs. I have been making handmade cards for the past 4 years. I love crafting and have had some kind of craft on the go for as long as I can remember - knitting, sewing, glass painting... you get the idea!

Over the next few months I shall share my hobby with you in the form of tips and pictures.

Meanwhile happy crafting everyone.
