Long time no blog!! again!!

Where does the time go?? Another new direction and a return to the old one.
I bought a sewing machine with my birthday money as the shabby chic doesn't end with card. I'd been toying with the idea of sewing again but problems with some second hand machine I'd tried put me off and it was only when I bought a new albeit entry level machine that I could get enthused again. So far I've been making some gorgeous lacy pin cushions and a shabby chic style apron - so photos of those later.
A return to the old card-making style - after my foray into sophisticated attempts - and some very popular Mother's Day Cards.

I just can't keep away from pink - but aqua is my second love. I bought some Melissa Francis 6" paper pads and they work so well.
If you like the style have a look at more items in my Folksy shop
Thanks for dropping by.
Don' forget to post a comment if you'd like to have a freebie sent to you - I will mail one every month.

A new direction

Have been so busy making cards this week - I haven't had much time to blog.
The chic part of the morechicthanshabby came to the forefront with some new designs, mostly for Valentine's Day.
Hope you like them

They will be for sale in my folksy shop soon.

retail therapy

Mothers and daughters love shopping together so what better subject for a Mother's Day Card than a boutique??
 Don't forget to leave a comment for your chance to win a boxed card - I will post to any country.

...a little birdhouse in my soul..and a freebie

I think there must be a little birdhouse in my soul  because I just love birdhouses - in the garden, indoors as ornaments, just anywhere. So when I decided to make cards with birdhouses it was a real joy - and I'm so pleased with the way the cards turned out. 
I will be listing these cards in my Folksy shop over the next few days but here is a preview. These cards can be personalised or adapted for almost any occasion - Mother's Day especially comes to mind.

I hope you like them.
Long time no blog!! must remedy that for 2012 and finally as promised I will send a free birdhouse card to one person who leaves a comment (good or bad!!) in January.
