Hi Everyone

Firstly welcome to my new blog! A very big thank you to Kim Gavarra for helping me get it all together. I can post to blogs but I can't do much else and Kim very kindly managed to resize my banner and put in the lovely printed grey side borders and made it all look pretty for me. I'm very happy and it's great because now I have no hosting fees!!

I thought I would start by revisiting some of the cards from my website. But over on the top left hand corner of this blog you will notice a slide show. I've uploaded photos from my old Blog to this slide show so that you can see photos of some of my previous creations. If you click on them individually you will be able to see a larger image.

But here are a few of my favourites.

Pick-a-Petal has always been a favourite set of mine and I loved this card which from memory went to a friend for her birthday.

This is a card that I made for my Dad for Fathers Day last year. I always find it challenging to make male cards and the secret is to keep them simple!

This was the card that I made for my son Paul's birthday last year. He is an all round sportsman and really loves surfing. I made the surfboard myself and the swirl on it came from the Stamp-It greeting on the card.

This card was for my friend Francie. I think that I made it back in 2007.

Now this card was a complete case from the 2008 - 2009 Stampin' Up! Catalogue. You can see it on page 88 but you will notice that I changed the colours and stamps used.

Lastly I thought I would finish this post with a Christmas Card. It's non traditional but I do love it, the colours are so subtle. This card was inspired by two other demonstrators .. Kim Gavarra and Karen Thomas.

The Retired List will be released tonight also and I will be posting it as soon as I can. Keep checking back or add me to your Google Reader.
