Wicked Stepmother's Birthday card

... Well she is not wicked - far from it, but when you have a Stepmother it seems only right to tease sometimes :)

So here is her card - I did enjoy colouring the little girl she took a while but it was fun!

I hope everyone is ok.  Number 1 son went for an interview on Monday so we are all on tenter hooks waiting to hear what happens.  Number 2 son is being the same scallywag he usually is, good sense of humour an answer for everything and a pile of muddy rugby kit.

We are still pulling our house around but downstairs this time so I can get some sort of order back to my craft room (I hope!)

Love to you all xxx

Gee's Birthday Card


My friend Gee and I are off to a fancy dress ball in Oostende in a couple of weeks time and the theme is Can Can.  We have made our dresses starting from corsets and so I thought that this birthday card for her was perfect :)

I'm not sure it shows, but I brushed mica powder over the top to make it look silky.  I hope she likes it

Love  Melissa xx

Valentine for my hubby

What a lovely reason to make a card! now I have to rush the blog as he's just walked in from work and obviously this is for tomorrow - so here it is - me and a lot of embossing powder, oh and a lovely sentiment stamp.  I thought I'd  add it to the PanPastel challenge  too.   ooooo got to go

A Rush of enthusiasm!

Hi all

Recently I've seen some of the challenges that are out there in blog land, and I thought what a great way to get some inspiration as I'm feeling a bit on the flat side.  So here is one that I am going to enter into the Lili's Little Fairies Challenge
but I liked the layout so much I did another one but this doesn't count

My final card was for the PanPastels Challenge 4

I love the way the pastels allow you to get such softness into a card
