Happy Anniversary!


Thought you might like to see this card made by Carole Cann as an anniversary card featuring Ma and Pa Iggly.  Carole Stamped Ma and Pa using black Versafine inkpad added a bit of colour with watercolour pens and finally a bit of bling with Stickles and

Glossy accents.  She also used Bazill Dotted Swiss for the background and cut the oval freehand, then added a peeloff



Don’t they make a lovely couple!  I bet they deserve each other!

Mini album – Stamp storage by Isabelle NORRIS


This week on ISMAKI is a Kadoodle week, and I have made a “mini-workshop” project: a mini album to store your favourite stamps. I have used KADOODLE stamps here of course, but how about your CDE, Whiff of Joy, High Hopes or Little Claire collection… If you have too many stamps for one mini-album, just split them into several “theme” albums.

This is a fun project which will look so cute on your shelves. You have the full explanations over on my blog. Please leave a comment over there to tell me what you think :).

Hope you enjoy this ! have a great week!

Hi here’s a great card from Carol Staples, for women of a certain age!

Carol has used Cuttlebug embossing folder swiss dots plus the scalloped circle Nestabilities, coloured her image with Twinkling H2Os and a touch of  glitter on the frock, shoe and handbag and white glaze pen for the whites of her eyes which really does make them come alive


Inside the card it says – Don’t worry it’s age and hormones!!

Thanks for visiting, hope to see you soon
