A little Easter gift for you!


Hello everyone,

I hope that you are all having a lovely weekend.

I had hoped to get this up in store sooner so that you could make the most of it before Easter but unfortunately time got away from me.

Hopefully it will be of use for next year if you have already made all your Easter cards for this year, though it is very quick and easy to make if you still need a last minute card. I hope you like it.


Easter Card Front with Insert Freebie




This cute Easter card front measures 14cm (approximately 5.5 inches) square. You will receive three sheets which include the complete card front and it’s simple optional decoupage layers and a matching card insert. Use as many or as few of the decoupage layers as you wish to adapt this card front to your needs.

All the sheets are 300dpi, high resolution sheets, for quality printing.

Have a lovely Easter,

A sweet country girl


Hello everyone,

Happy Easter!

I'm sorry it's been a while. Hubby has been on leave from work for the last week so I've been busy with other things and making the most of having him at home.

It's also been year end and I've had to spend some time getting my accounts up to date so that I can prove to the tax man that I don't earn enough to pay tax. It always seems such a waste of my time which I resent. I think it should be down to the tax man to prove I owe them something. Is it just me?

I have still managed to find time to finish off a cute card kit that I started a little while ago, I hope you like it.

A new category in my store


Hello everyone,

I just want to let you know that I have added a new category to my store in my continuing quest to make things as easy for you to find as possible.

I have added a 'Suitable for Beginners' section within the 'Card Kits' category. You can find it HERE.

I have put all my card kits which have easy to cut out layers in this section as they are all suitable for beginners to try.

However, even if you are an experienced card maker, you may still find this section useful as these are also my card kits which are quick to make and therefore suitable for any last minute cards you may need.

You may wish to bear that in mind for the next time that you need a card in a hurry.

If anyone wants to suggest any other new categories which may be helpful, feel free to get in touch and I'll see what I can do.

Hugs
Von
