More Queen of Hearts

I have been so inspired by the colours and characters of Alice in Wonderland, AND all the crafted hearts people posted on their blogs for Valentine's Day, AND the beautiful cards my friend Kirsteen makes (Kirsteen's Blogspot), that I made some Queen of Hearts cards.

I've never really made cards at home before. I've made HEAPs over the years with the children at school, coming up with different ideas for Easter, Mothers Day, Fathers Day and Christmas cards. Oh, and Jonathon and I made our wedding invitations over 11 years ago. These ones could be used as Valentine's cards, or for children's birthdays, maybe even as birthday cards for girly girlfriends. I love the idea that in some parts of the world, ie America, they give Valentine's cards to all their friends, rather than partners, as we do in Australia. (Although I do still love that Jonathon and I give each other gifts or cards!)


  1. Those cards are gorgeous! I love the papers. Your Alice in wonderland drawings are AMAZING, I love them.

    I found another great card making website www.doodlebug.ws, check it out. Kx

  2. Some scrapbooking/craft websites to keep you busy. I gathered these from the doodlebug website.
