Welcome To The Start Of Something Big...


After being nagged at for months now, I have finally given in and let Andy persuade me to start my own blog. I am not very confident with technology and I usually leave the written word to my hubby as even though I know what it is that I want to say, I am not confident enough to know HOW to say it. So please be patient with me and don't expect a deluge of cards as our crafting time has to fit in around our various aches and pains.
I am starting my blog off with three cards I made recently and which Andy very kindly put on his blog but I do have some new cards finished, they just need photographing and then I can put them on here, hopefully before the end of this week.
As you can probably see, I have used a lot of Spellbinders dies (courtesy of my husband's insane need to own every one that comes out!!). I am very much influenced by the great Sue Wilson, an American lady who is one of Spellbinders creative team and she demonstrates on Create and Craft regularly. I can't even begin to say what it is that I love about her style but she makes cards that truly take my breath away and I would love to be able to do what she does. If you have any questions about what I have done then please feel free to leave a comment and I will try my hardest to get back to you. 
So thank you for taking the time to read this and I will (hopefully) see you again very soon,
take care,


  1. I thought I would beat the rush and be the first to say how wonderful your blog is, the colours are amazing and I love the picture of the kids, however did you do that!!
    Good Luck kid, I really hope this becomes something bigger than you could have ever imagined, you deserve it x o x o
    P.S. Now leave me alone so I can do my blog okay!

    Your cards are beautiful Jo, so glad you decided to start showing your talent to the world. You never know we might even see you entering challenges :)
    So sorry to hear that you are unwell, but after reading what Andy said I do think you need to see someone if you're not improving.
    Hope to see new creations soon

  6. Hi Jo! So glad your blog got up and running! I tried visiting last weekend and then forgot to come back during the week. Your first three cards are gorgeous and I know there will be many more to come! Bravo! Hope you have fun with the blogging! Oh, and sorry to hear your are feeling poorly. Hope you feel better soon!

  7. Hi Jo! I have come over from Andy's blog and definitely worth the visit. Your cards are lovely. Andy said that you have been feeling unwell for four days - please listen to him and get someone to check you out soon. It just might speed up the healing process for you. Hugs from NZ - Suze
