A birthday card for my Grandma

I made this "stepper" card for my Grandma's birthday. I saw the design in a magazine making Valentine's day cards. One I got the card trimmed and scored in the right places it wasn't too difficult. I did rumage through all my background papers to find a couple that were different. I added the cakes as it is well known that Grandma has a very sweet tooth! Especially Cadbury's mini rolls!!

Happy birthday Grandma xxx

First attempt at making something with the sewing machine...eek

After receiving a sewing machine for Christmas I thought I'd start by making a simple bag. I've had lots of encouragement from the lovely ladies on MSE so I have a pattern from my local shop and some lovely blue goes......Just hope I don't cut it wonky ;-)

A birthday card for my "cat-mad" friend

My friend is mad about animals and recently adopted a ginger cat which she named "Radish" (I do not know why!). I got the cat embellishments from a local craft shop Once I figured out how to position the ribbon it was quite simple. I did the wording in the centre with an embossing folder using my cuttlebug.

I have a few more cards on the trying out some "stepper cards" that I saw in last month's issue of a crafting this space!!!
