Over the years I have made hundreds of cards. I have made all our Christmas cards for at least the last 10 years. There have been birthday cards, anniversary cards, blank cards, get well cards, thank you cards….. the list is almost endless. Gradually I have tried out different techniques. These have included stamping, using our photographs, layering, watercolours, punching patterns, using punched pieces to create a picture, using distress inks, and most recently trying my hand at pyrography on a card! Some years ago I was given a Big shot die cutting machine, and so gradually I have endeavoured to incorporate cutwork and embossed backgrounds into my cards. More recently I have bought a Big shot plus, thus meaning that I can use some of the larger dies and embossing folders now available. Here are just a few….

A Cathie Shuttleworth die cut.
One of our own photos of the Denbigh Moors – taken many years ago when we had an incredibly cold spell! The weather was so incredible that day – with views of 20 miles and more across the moors to the Snowdonia range.
My first attempt at Pyrography – a skill hubby was so very good at.
Using Pergamano on a card. beautiful and relaxing to do. The effect is so lovely – but, oh my, it takes a long time! Worth it, though!!
Having fun with brusho inks to create backgrounds.
