Birthday and Valentine's Day Cards

Hello Everyone! I'm shivering as I write this, as we still have no heating and hot water. Our boiler has been officially declared dead and unsafe, so Hubby is busy getting quotes for a new one. Brrr!!!

I tried to warm up yesterday, by making a few commissioned cards(didn't work, but it took my mind off it!)

A birthday card, using Craftwork Cards and DCWV products...


Valentine's card, made with stamps Artistic Stamper and Tim Holtz stamps, and Dylusions paint (mostly)


and two cards made with Dylusion paint, and stamps by Dina Wakley and PaperArtsy.




Hope you are warm and having a good week, 

Alison x

  1. Sorry to read about your heater. It is freezing here, too. I'm sitting in front of a small electric heater and my central heat isn't able to keep up with this bitter cold. We have subzero (F) temps here. I hope it's not that cold where you are.

    Those cards are lovely. I especially like the first one, but the Valentines are beautiful, too. I really LOVE your mixed media style.

  5. I hope it isn't too cold. I would probably suck it up and go check into a hotel so you are very brave in my mind sitting with the cold. How long do you think it will be before it gets fixed? Love the cards. Art is a good way to take your mind off the cold I bet. Drink lots of warm drinks and hope you have some thick blankets to cuddle under. Hugs-Erika

  9. Oh gosh, sorry to hear about the boiler Alison and especially at this time of year - I do hope you can sort something out soon and are managing to keep warm. What with the high winds as well last night/today, hope that didn't affect you.
    Your cards are gorgeous and hopefully you lost yourself in that for a while.
    Hope all's well soon.....Gill xx

  10. Really gorgeous cards Alison, so full of lovely detail.
    Hope you get a new boiler soon, why do they always go wrong when it's freezing cold? Had the same issue a few years back too.

  11. I hope you it fixed soon - I remember when it happened to us in our old house - the high ceilings just made it seem colder too! The cards you made are fabulous and a good distraction too! Hugs, Chrisx

  12. I adore your Valentines and birthday card! I'm so sorry to hear about your heating troubles. I hope the problem is short lived. It's miserable being cold (one of the reasons I live in the desert!). Best wishes to you and your husband.

  13. What beautiful cards! The colours and embossed frame you created on the birthday card is so pretty and I love the layers of colour on the Valentine's cards too - wonderful 😁. Sorry that your boiler is out of commission, it's not a good time of year to be without heat and you must be freezing - brrrr! Hope it's all sorted soon and sending you warm wishes for a Happy Friday and Weekend! J 😊

  15. I am sometimes cold even with a fully functional heater :( I hope you have heat soon! I don't know how you did this work under such conditions, much less how you created such beautiful pieces. My hat's off to you :)

  16. I'm sorry to hear about the boiler. Can you borrow a little gas heater from someone (you know with a gas bottle) They are very effective. Go and live in one room, like the kitchen and try to keep that as warm as you can. Then cover the windows with newspaper (insulating), and try to exclude all drafts. What a nightmare! Keep your spirit up.
    Your cards are absolutely wonderful. Clever you, even with cold fingers.
    I hope you soon get some warmth back in the house,
    Stay positive,
    Lisca
