Catch of the day

Today's card is one for the men in our lives, especially if they like to fish. The card is a Paper Creator kit, and I added some 4mm satin ribbons and a Wish charm from Meiflower to finish it off. I thought the Wish charm was appropriate, as every time my daughters partner goes fishing, he is wishing he could catch 'the big one' - he never does LOL!

Ribbon Fish

I made today's card for a challenge with the theme Ribbons, and wanted to do something a bit different than just adding a bow, so I coloured up a mermaid digi and made some ribbon fish from assorted Meiflower 10mm satin ribbons, using 4mm satin ribbon to tie them together and adding a little stick on black pearl to each one for the eye.

Butterfly kisses

I've kept this card design quite simple, no designer papers, just an embossed background, and a gorgeous die cut cornflower, then I added a pretty lilac floral ribbon, pearl ribbon slider and stick on gems all from Meiflower.

Bugaboo JJ

I found a great sentiment on a fridge magnet so I paired it up with a Bugaboo digi image and made a card, I added a charm and some ribbons to a coloured paper clip before using it to attach the sentiment tag to the card.

Ladybird

Last weekend I went to the Sincerely Yours craft show at Leigh, and picked up some new Meiflower goodies, Mei has a fabulous selection of enamelled charms, including some gorgeous handbags in various colours, fairies, cupcakes and one of my favourites a cute little ladybird with diamant√© spots. As the challenge on Paper Creator this weekend just happens to be spots and dots I felt that the ladybird would be the perfect embellishment for my spotty card, along with some of Meiflowers pretty polka dot ribbon.

My hubby says she's asking the ladybird if he thinks I have gone a bit over the top with the spots LOL!

Thanks for dropping in,

Black and White anniversary card

Here's an anniversary card I put together using a silhouette digi image from Stitchy bear, some dies and Meiflower black stick on gems. I think it turned out quite elegantly.


I drew the swirls out roughly on paper and then used a pokey tool to make a little hole where I wanted each gem to go. I then put the "template" onto the card and using a pencil, lightly marked through each hole, after removing the template I added a gem to each mark, randomly varying the sizes of the gems as I went along.

Thanks for looking,
