I'm a 45 year old SAHM. I live on the East coast of Suffolk with my lovely hubby, our 17 year old son and our totally mad 13 year old Labradoodle. I love all papercrafts, but at the moment my passion is for cardmaking and scrapbooking. Thanks for visiting.
If you like what you see here, please feel free to take inspiration from any of my designs for your own personnal use, but please don't copy them and pass them off as your own and not give me credit (that's not a nice thing to do), or enter them into competitions, or submit them for publication. If you do make anything inspired by my work, please let me know, i'd love to see it.

Whilst at the Sarah's Cards retreat last weekend i actually scrapped!! I snatched time between assisting in classes, working the till and calling the bingo to do just one page over the whole weekend. This is actually the first page i've done since March, (expect for doing my sample page for Jen's class). I really enjoyed doing this page and absorbed some creative vibes from the talent around me.
The papers i've used are from American Crafts - Chap range.
There are still a few spaces left for our next retreat in March, but i don't think they will be be around much longer.
We've just had the 3rd Sarah's Cards retreat in Warrington over the weekend. It was a fabulous weekend, spend with an amazing bunch of ladies. Although it was very tiring i loved every minute. Think i'm suffering jet lag after travelling so far up North. :)
Check out this post over on the Sarah's Cards blog for some photos of the weekend, and keep your eyes peeled for some pictures of the class layouts that are coming soon.
This year our charity was the Alzheimer's Society which is very close to both Sarah's and my hearts. Lots of money was raised through raffling off a gorgeous quilt made by Sarah, the charity table and also from a card class i did, which £2 from each kit sold went to the charity.
Here's the cards, that were part of the class i taught. I think i was aiming a little high to think we would get anywhere completing three cards in an hour, but most people finished them off in the crop room.
