I was recently asked to make a 40th birthday card for a girl who has gone all around Ireland in a canoe to raise money for charity. It was quite difficult to find a canoe image or stamp with a female in it, but I eventually came across this decoupage image on Crafts U Print. I matched it up with some paper from a First Edition pad and 'pool party' coloured card from SU. The fancy label was made using a Spellbinders die. My camera is now producing two grey spots on my photos - I've cleaned the lens and it hasn't made any difference - so the card doesn't really have a dirty smudge on the top left - its fine IRL! I can enter it in the Allsorts challenge - 'Happy Birthday' and also in the Simon Says one - 'Anything Goes.'
I'm a part time teacher, married for over 23 years and Mum to Hannah and Nathan. I dabble in most crafts and have been making cards for about 15 years now. I'm a big fan of Stampin Up, Lili of the Valley and Magnolia products. I also make wedding stationery and sell my cards in a local craft shop to help school funds.
