My First Post


This is my first post of hopefully many.

I love to make cards and other craft items and hope that you get inspiration and ideas from my site.

I vary the designs and styles of my cards according to what mood I am in.

This card base has been made using a Martha Stewart punch and is made in a vintage style.

The topper is one from an old Hunkydory collection which I have aged.

My cards will be for sale and I include 'Maddykins' in the title on ebay

Hope you like it, see you soon.


PS sorry photos are not the best still working on them
