Mr & Mrs Wedding card

Hi everyone,

Just dropping by to share a recent wedding card made for a good friend of mine. I wanted to go with a really elegant colour scheme for the card and I love the combination of red, navy and shimmering white for this. I have all the details and info on this one up over on the Papermilldirect blog.

Thanks for stopping by today, and if you make any wedding cards, or have any favourite colour combos for them share them with me!

Sparkling Silver Cake

Hi All,

I have this card up over on the Papermilldirect blog, showing off this fun and sparkly birthday card. I used the very fun Silver Sparkle Papermilldirect card, teamed up with the Navy Papermilldirect card. I used a cut file on my Silhouette and combined the silver card with the Papermilldirect navy card. I think this is a fun card design for a man, and can easily change up the colours for any occasion or person!

Book Review – Sweetpea

Book: SweetPea (Available on Amazon*)

Author: C. J. Skuse

Sweetpea by [Skuse, C.J.]

This book will appeal to that little bit of psychopath lurking inside us all. Who hasn’t had a day where we would have made a list of the people we could kill if we could get away with it? Or gone through the day pretending to be nice when really you just want to say ‘get lost’ to the world and everyone in it? If that is just me, then perhaps I have a lot more in common with Rhinannon, the main protagonist in this book than I realised. But I am pretty sure you will have been nodding along with me on this!

This book is at its most basic, a book about a serial killer. But it is really so very much more than that. It is about a person trying to fit in every day and be ‘normal’. A person who has dark thoughts and impulses, but unfortunately acts on them at times. A person who as dark and broken as she is, you find yourself connecting with her more and more as the book progresses, and her story unfolds. Her seemingly normal and boring life unravels before you, and you laugh, cry, stress out and scheme along with her at every moment of the journey. It is a dark journey and one so skillfully written that you can’t help but empathise with Rhinannon.

It is a dark, dark comedy, gruesome, violent and full of coarse language. It is a dark, twisted humour book, that delivers from the start, and keeps up the pace the entire way through. It is definitely not a book for everyone, but if you like it you will love it. I certainly loved it, I found it an explosion of energy and uniqueness that I have not read in a long while with a book. Thank you C.J. Skuse – and what happens next??

I received this book from NetGalley for review, but all opinions are entirely my own.

Easter Swing Card

Hi All,

I am just stopping by to share a quick and fun Easter make with you created using some gorgeous Papermilldirect card. This card was very fast to make because I used a digital cut file from Bird’s cards. Unfortunately, I can’t find the exact cut file to link to but you can find lots of similar files and swing card files here. For this project I used the gorgeous Gold Grosgrain card among other colours of card. Stop by the Papermilldirect blog to find out more and see some more images of the card along with a tutorial for making a card like this.
