Handmade cards - the Slummy Mummy way

Back in 2006 I made a great New Years resolution - to hand make all cards for a year, and for that whole year I loved spending hours gluing, painting, cutting, colouring cards for my friends and family, but when 2007 arrived I admitted defeat. My card making much like my DIY and baking wasn't very good. A+ for effort but C- for content.
I love the look of handmade cards, and love receiving them, but often handmade cards in shops cost the price of a family roast dinner at a gastro pub.  I usually resort to shop bought generic cards [which I usually personalise with a black marker pen!] So imagine my delight when I discovered a lovely lady who makes delighful homemade cards that don't cost the earth.
Emma contacted me via Twitter and on this site asking if I'd be interested in reviewing her cards, and I agreed as I was intrigued to see the quality of someone else's homemade efforts. When they arrived I was shocked [in a good way] The cards looked amazing! I was sent x 2 new baby cards, one for a girl and one for a boy.
Both cards and colourful and vibrant with fresh designs. I especially like the boys one with the buttons attached to the front. The cards are of excellent quality and look very professional. A+ for effort and A+ for content too!
Having looked through Emma's other cards and items, I'm really impressed by the variety, and will most definately be recommeding it to other. See - or
