Bradley’s Fight: a Battle Against Neuroblastoma

Today’s post is a special one because the Christmas card I made is in support of 5-year old Bradley Lowery’s fight against Neuroblastoma. I came across a YouTube video of him being the mascot for Sunderland in their match against Chelsea. It was so heartwarming and I began to follow his story. Check it out below: […]

Snowflake Card: Holiday Cross-stitch DIYs

My last cross-stitch card seemed like a big hit, so I thought I’d make another one! This snowflake card uses one colour (white) against a red background.

This wasn’t even supposed to be a funny card, but it somehow ended up that way. I tried to save the image on the front…  In the spirit of trying new things and having a bit of a laugh (at my own expense haha!), I made a Get Well card to help us get through […]

Love, Paper Love: a unique spin on a good ol’ greeting card

I have this obsession with paper. I love it!

Cue in present day, the folder is bulging with different types of […]
