Nyan Cat Card

My daughter is a Nyan fan! Nyan Cat (for those of you who have somehow managed to avoid the phenomenon) is a pop tart with a cat face that flies through a starry sky leaving a rainbow trail behind him. All this to a background…

A Matter of Balance

Having successfully started my journal, (and thoroughly enjoyed it), I am determined to continue…..so here is the second spread that I have designed. I saw the quote on a webpage, then had the idea for the image. I wanted to make a feature of the…

Happy Valentine’s Day

Love is in the air……and I can now share my Valentine’s card with you all as the big day has now arrived. Hopefully the recipient loved it (well, there are no ‘Poncy Bears’ on it, so that’s a start!) I wanted to make something classic,…

This Could Be The Start Of Something Big…

As I didn’t really make any New Year’s resolutions this year, I have decided to start a long-term, on-going project. Having messed about with patchwork last year, I have embarked on a patchwork quilt! It may be a double quilt, it may be a single…
