Spellbinding cards!

Here are a selection of cards I have made recently for family members and friends.















 I started making cards in March 2012 and the cards I made at the beginning have evolved and this is where I am now. I have no pics of my first cards - I never thought to take any. Some I would rather not remember! As you can probably tell I am very much a spellbinders girl although I have now found stamping and promarkers too! I will look out some pics of cards made using these fantastic pens and post them on here tomorrow. I would really value your thoughts and comments on my efforts so far.

Faffing about!

Well here I am on day 2 and still I am messing about with the look of my blog....I do believe I am there! Now for attempting to upload some of the pics of my cards. Watch this space!

Newbie on board!

Well the title says it all - I have looked at so many blogs where people are showing off the beautiful cards they are handcrafting, I thought 'how hard can it be?' (not the cards but the blogging)! Well it was! Hours I have spent setting up this blog but I do believe I am there. My whole reason for setting up a blog was that I wanted the world to see my cards. Now I am not saying they are wonderful - as a matter of fact it is because I lack the conviction that they are any good that I find myself here.

 I have been making cards to give to family and friends since coming across Create and Craft on the TV whilst ill in bed. I have been addicted ever since! I have had a couple of commissions - I also sold a few at a school fete last summer but as I work there I didn't know if that was because people felt sorry for me. Now don't get me wrong, I am not a weeping willow who is feeling sorry for myself _ I would just really value some independent opinions by people who don't know me from Adam.Over the next couple of days I hope to upload some pics of some of my cards (when I've worked out how to). Until then........
