When I first started card making I bought boxes of pre printed cards and stuck bits on them. I don't think I actually realised that I could buy white cards and decorate them myself - wow, it was a revelation when I learnt I could do that! Still I have a box full of these pre printed cards which I need to use up so I can concentrate on cards which make me more creative. The first card I made was for H's 4th Birthday. He's having a swimming party so when I saw the swimming stickers I knew where to start.

On the same theme my nephew O is 6 later this year, so I hope he likes sharks. I think my Hubby, who will be 40 next year would have happily have had the shark card!!!!!

I love buttons. I just can't get enough of them. I don't know why I only "discovered" them late last year. Any spare buttons can be sent straight to me and if they have dots on them, then I REALLY, really need them! (I love spots).
The other thing I never know what to do with, is those free chipboard die cuts that you get free with magazines. You know the ones -
