I come from and live in a very creative and musical household - both myself and my partner have many artistic outlets - although card making has become a fairly new hobby of mine, which started due to wanting to utlise and celebrate my love of old photographs and the stories they hold...

I have always loved Etsy and my whole family purchase from many of the wonderful and creative sellers based around the world. I particularly love steampunk jewellery, fired ceramics & anything unique.

My handmade card creations use original, although mostly Victorian, images which I enhance using 21st century technology.

Each card can be custom made to order with lettering of your choice - and choice of envelope colour if preferred.

All of my cards and images look great framed too. So buy one to send to a friend for that special occassion...but don't forget to treat yourself to one too ;-)
