About Me

Chertsey, Surrey, United Kingdom
Hello, I'm Jill - mother of three grown up children and wife to Geoff. I have been crafting one way or another for as long as I can remember. In the1990's I discovered quilling and in 2009 I began selling my quilled card designs online (https://folksy.com/shops/PaperDaisyCardDesign) - this continues to go from strength to strength. My blog "Paper Daisy Cards" features my handmade cards, quilled or otherwise! More recently I re-discovered rubber stamping and became an Independent Stampin' Up! demonstrator, showcasing and selling high quality paper crafting materials including rubber stamps, inks, cardstock, punches and dies. My blog "Paper Daisy Crafting" features my creations made with Stampin' Up! products, a list of all the papercrafting classes I run, all the latest news and offers and a link to my online shop , so that you too can join in the fun!

Another Valentine's card

Good morning everyone. Did you all wake up to a blanket of snow this morning? I don't think we have as much snow as other places here in Surrey, but it's still very pretty. I'm just glad it's at the weekend, so that I don't need to get in the car - I hate driving in snowy or icy conditions. My children, despite being teenagers, are still excited each time it snows. The youngest one, Annie, who's 14, has wrapped herself up and gone off to "play" with her friends. I'm just making the most of the quiet to stay warm and get some crafting done. I'll just be on standby with hot chocolate when Annie returns!

Today's card is another one I made for a special order. One of my very best customers on my Folksy site asked if I could make a Valentine's card featuring a fish! Here is the card I came up with:

And from other angles:

What do you think? I had not considered using fish on a Valentine's card, but I'm quite pleased with how it turned out. I'd really like to play with the design a bit more. Maybe a more "Valentine-y" colour scheme (reds, pinks etc). And I might try making one with two fish with their lips meeting.

Let me know what you think.

I'll be back next week with another card and a Mother's Day giveaway I think. So be sure to come back then.

Til then, have a great week and stay warm!



  1. Your cards are lovely Jill, so much time and patience have gone into them!! Gorgeous!
