I made this wallet card for a lady over at the DC site for the October image swap.
The colours are alot brighter than I usually use, but I found some Anna Griffin Papers that I had forgotten about, so I used those and I think it came out OK.
I hope she likes it.

and this one is for a lady on the DC site that I made as part of the October friendship swap. I really like doing the swaps as I have received some lovely cards and images from the crafters I have swapped with and am making some friends aswell. It's all good.
Papers on this one are Pink Petticoat
Image from a swap
Flowers and Ribbon from stash.

Thanks for looking xx

Hi everyone, well I logged on this morning to find I had been tagged by Erin.

The rules are:

1. Link your tagger and list the rules on your blog.
2. Share 7 facts about yourself on your blog, some random, some wierd.
3. Tag 7 people at the end of your post by leaving their names and links to their blogs.
4. Let them know they have been tagged by leaving a comment on their blog.

Now I have to tell you 7 facts about me, and I'm not as normal as you may think!!

1. One of my most treasured possessions is a 10" x 8" photo of Donny Osmond which he signed "Happy 40th Birthday Michele, Love Donny".

2. I love chocolate!

3. Now, it gets wierd. I can only eat sandwiches that are cut into triangles or in half diagonally!
I cannot even look at a sandwich that is cut in squares! Told you I was wierd! lol

4. I have several phobias, but the worst one is daddy long legs. I get hysterical if they start to move and have to leave the room.

5. I love playing games and regularly get together with my cousins for games nights and play poker once a month.

6. I am quite forgetful and recently put 2 eggs on to boil and forgot about them until I heard a popping noise from the kitchen - the water had boiled away and my eggs were bouncing around the pan!

7. I am married to the most wonderful man, who is just so supportive of what I love to do and we had our 25th Wedding Anniversary in July.

The 7 people I am tagging are:

1. Natalie
Jills Cards
Me and Lilg

I really like this card. I made it for my cousin's daughter, Laura, who is 20 today. "HAPPY BIRTHDAY LAURA".

Her first words when I gave her the card were "Ooooh I've been waiting for your card all day"

She really loved it, especially the colours and it was also nice to see my card appreciated like that, because when you make cards for other people on order, you never get to see the reaction of who they are made for.

Papers are Pink Petticoat, Ribbon & Flowers from stash.

Take care and thanks for looking xxx


This is a wallet card I made for a lady on Docrafts who I am doing an image swap with.

I'm really getting into the magnolia range of stamps, they are so cute and thanks to the image swaps I have quite a collection now.

Thanks for looking xx

There's some fab blog candy over at Camilla's blogg, especially if you are a fan of Whiff of Joy stamps. I'll say no more - see for yourself.
Good luck, Michele xx


I made this card for a lovely lady on the Docrafts site who really helped me out recently. I think this image is so cute and when I know she has received the card, I will tell you who she is.

Glad you like the card Alex.
