Well, here it is!

I've finally done it and started a blog!  Something new for me for 2012.

The first card I want to share is one I've created for my father-in-law's birthday on the 13th of January.
The papers are Papermania Hampstead collection, as are the borders, sentiment sticker and brad.
The pheasant stamp set is by Stampin' Up which I've stamped with Tim Holtz Distress Inks in Walnut Stain, Antique Linen, Peeled Paint and Bundled Sage.  The background was done with a Distress Ink blending tool using Peeled Paint for the grass and Tumbled Glass for the sky.
The leaves were made with an Xcut punch from Core'dinations.
I then finished the card with a bow made form raffia.


  1. Welcome to Blogland!!! I love your card, it's very professional looking and great colours.

  7. This is a stunning card Wendy. I have just spent a happy half hour looking at all your beautifully made cards. As you know my style is fairly simple with not much embellishments, but all your cards are really stunning with lots of details and beautifully co-ordinated. Gorgeous.
