Pay It Forward

I have seen a brilliant game over at the wonderful Shirley's blog (Nannieflash to you!) She got the idea from Dorcas' blog and it sounds so brilliant, I just had to join in.
This is how it works: I promise to send something handmade (in this case, a card) to the first five people who comment on this post. But there is a catch. You must post this, too, offering something handmade or homemade, to five other people to be sent during 2011. If you'd like to join in the fun, then be the first to post a comment, and something handmade especially for you, will be winging its way to you very soon. It doesn't matter where in the world you are, I'll post to anywhere. Isn't that cool? Let's see what we can do, come and join in.
I was very swift to put my name down on Shirley's blog, as she makes the most amazing cards. I just have to show you what came in the post yesterday.

This is a truly beautiful card. I recognise the LOTV image, which is so sweet, but it's the way she's done the flowers and leaves, which is truly outstanding.

She sent me this as an extra, as she saw the horse and thought of me. How utterly lovely. Thankyou so much for these, Shirley, I will treasure them.
So if you'd like something handmade by me, pop a comment on and I'll get cracking.


  1. Hi Jane, you are most welcome Im so glad theyve given you pleasure, the flowers are mainly done by the Floral Punch Craft method where you punch them out then mould them with a ball tool, theres some fabulous tutorials around so if your really interested have a look. With love and huge Shirleyxxxxx

  2. hi there, thanks so much for the invite with this but I've got such a lot of work on at the moment I haven't got time to make so much as a sandwich!
    Hope it all goes well- looks like lotsa fun.
    Bestest wishes xx

  3. Ho, ho! I don't see you posting anything to Cape Town - lots goes missing over such a long way. Beautiful cards by Nanniflash, though. My best friend does it here. She loves the hobby and I treasure the ones she makes for me.
