Yep it's been two whole weeks, I've been slacking again...

I'm here now though, so without further waffle, here's a card.


I love how you can pull lots of little bits out of the large wallflower corner stamp and use them like this as well as the whole corner.

I used the following..

Wallflower set

Foliage from Fly Away

New letterbox kit

Various Archival inks

Ok so that was a quick post, so I'll try to do another post before weekend.

Thanks for stopping by!

Love flowers

Good Morning!

So back to normal then eh, whatever normal means.

I have been trying to find more time to blog lately, sometimes easier than others, I've tried to catch up with friends blogs too and while doing this I've spotted a couple of challenges that look fun.

So I made this...

For this challenge below...

And as luck would have it, it also fits the Craft Stamper challenge theme of lots of colour, so I'm just playing along for fun.

So all I did was make a panel card using

Jim's flowers stencil

Stencil brushes

Various distress inks

Sentiment stamp, I was a little limited because all my stamps etc are at work and I'm at home.

That's all for now, I have to pack for Ally Pally.

Thanks for stopping by.

Happy Easter

Good Morning!

So, you were not impressed with my Christmas card in March then lol, I could hear you groaning through my iPad screen! Don't come crying to me on Christmas Eve when you haven't finished your cards lol, remember I reminded you way back in March!

So how about an Easter card then?

Actually I'm gonna confess, I made a handful of these but I don't really send Easter cards, so my next door neighbour will get one but the rest will be converted into birthday cards etc by covering the sentiment with a little plaque.

I used....

Abstract squares claritystencil. One of my faves.

Tulip claritystencil

Clarity blending brushes

Happy Easter Claritystamp

Inks...butterscotch, stream, cranberry, lettuce.

I did a similar but different version that I'll show you on Monday....and maybe a little ol' tutorial seeing as I am having a couple of days off.

Thanks for stopping by, if you pop back tomorrow I'll have a sneak peek for the Claritystamp telly show on Sunday with Barbara.

Snowy? So is it Christmas yet....


Good afternoon!

Well apparently lots of you have snow where you are, and I've got the winter lurgy, so....Christmas card? Lol

I chose this one because I love the star stencil, we will be using it in class in May-but not for a Christmas card I promise!
I thought id leave Santa black and white because I've gone bright with the stars and banner, would you have coloured or not?
I'm going back to my steam bath and Olbas Oil, catch you soon, thanks for calling in!
