Artistic Philosophy

Reality has limits but our imagination does not, so let it run free and your creativity will flourish.

My imagination helps me create unique work as I strive to produce beautiful things and grow in capability, experience and confidence. My goal as I travel this journey of creativity, is to share my work and inspire others so that they themselves, may create something distinct and original too.

Another mini card

Hi all and happy sunday.
I do hope you are all having a good weekend so far.  Todays post is very short, it is mainly to show you my latest Mini Card.  I love to make these to include in parcels or with gifts that are going in the post.  They are also really handy when you just want to send a note to say Hi.


I started with the largest of the Spellbinders Labels 20 dies and blood red card for the base, then a beautiful floral paper from MME Lost & Found2.  It is a stunning paper and the reverse is the lovely pink check shown on the smaller Labels 20 diecut. This is one of my all time favourite papers.   I cut more of the blood red card with the Spellbinders Damask Motifs dies to add some filigree decoration and a piece of my hand crocheted lace with a few dewdrops to finish it off.
Well that's all for now though I will be back about 2pm with a storage idea.  Take care of yourselves and have a crafty day.  Hugs Linda xx

  1. Hi Linda,
    WOW, now that's another bright and lovely design. Just love those papers. I need to buy more papers, but the pennies are tight at the mo with my granddaughter's wedding looming. Maybe once the wedding is out of the way. LOL I keep wanting new craft things. I need blinkers. Sopped watching C and C in case I get tempted. LOL. Have a great crafty sunny day.
    Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.

  7. Hi Linda, have just managed to catch up on all your post, so one comment will have to cover all. I love them all, you really do give me inspiration which I seem to be lacking in at the moment. I think I have had too much on my mind with the jubilee and my brothers visit, hopefully I can get down to some crafting in the week. I loved the mini card that you sent to me with my paper which I love by the way. Looking forward to you post this afternoon, best wishes,, Lesley x
