World Card Making Day

World Card Making DayHi guys

Well, it was a special day yesterday in the crafting calendar…it was World Card Making Day!!

I could not let it pass by without going into my craft room and making some cards to celebrate. As it happens, I have been invited to a friends 40th birthday party last evening, so it felt a great excuse to get crafting.

I have been itching to use one of my new stamp sets from Simon Says Stamp called Circle Sayings. Therefore, it was obvious which stamp set I was going to use. I also made a set of three cards because I find it really helpful to build up my card stash for those times when I have no time and I need a card in a hurry. The Circle Sayings stamp set paired fabulously with the My Favourite Things, Pierced Circle Die Set! You have no idea how happy that makes me :)))

The one thing I really appreciate is when I can vision so many different ways to use just one stamp set. The Circle Sayings set lends itself to being timeless and useful for making male or female cards, and for any occasion….fantastic!

I will add the latest cards to my Twitter, Facebook and Pinterest pages, so don’t forget to check them out. If you have any questions, you can send me a #tweetlinkcrafty or email me on the contact page at

Bye for now

Welcome to my Linkcrafty Blog!

Hi guys, welcome to my Linkcrafty blog!

My name is Cheryl and I have been working as a nurse since 1995. I graduated and worked in the UK for a number of years but in 2006, we moved to Canada. Currently, I work full time and in my spare time, I craft.

Two of my greatest accomplishments are my wonderful children who have also blessed me with three grandsons. Proudly, I can say that I have dual citizenship now between the UK and Canada and I feel privileged to have been able to achieve this in my life.

Creating has always been a passion of mine, from winning an art competition at school, always being in the school plays and choosing all creative subjects when possible like art, sewing and cookery. As my children were growing up you would often find me at my sewing machine making cushion covers and curtains. Unfortunately, I also made some interesting dresses for my eldest daughter to wear!

Paper crafts isa true joy to me and I feel at ‘home’ in my craft room. Colours, paper, glue, cutting, mediums and stamping….anything that involves creating with paper and card stock just makes me feel great. I am sure that I am not the only one who sees patterned paper and colours and gets all excited, right?
Once in my craft room, I don’t want to leave and its not unusual for me to lose all sense of time and get fed and watered through the railings by my husband, ha, ha.
There is one thing that puzzles me though, how is anyone able to create something in a tidy, orderly fashion? I find that impossible!

I love organization too and friends often comment on the way my craft room is set up. Though when I get the mojo and start to pull things out of the drawers, my craft room can look like the burglars have paid a visit!

I hope you enjoy visiting my website and having a read of my blog. Hopefully you will find it inspiring and it encourages you to dip your toe into something fun. Who knows, I may even introduce you to my adorable dogs, Molly and Sasha!


Remember………….if you think crafty, link crafty!
