Paint Party Friday.

Thank you for all the wonderful encouraging words. Unfortunately things did not go well today. Want to thank my wonderful husband for his hard work on my stall. Sold the four bags and  3 cards which is a bit  of a let down but it is what it is.

Hope that the week ahead will bring hope and joy.
 Thank you.

Bit of Screen Printing

Had a very productive day today. Screen printed 5 bags for my craft stall on Saturday. The second photo shows a screen made with one of Beccy Muir's designs ( with permission). It was coloured with Inktense pencils and I did add some fabric glitter once it was dried. 

If you are near  St Peter and St Paul church in Bassingbourn there is a Village Market from 10am to 12am. I will have these bags and other items for sale. 

Keep warm and dry.

Christmas card

Happy New Year, as my church website said. It's the first day of Advent and the start of the church year, so Happy New Year to all.

Hope we all take time reflect on the true meaning of Christmas and try to show the love of God to ourselves and to our fellow man.

Made this card using Studio Light stamp in the background and dies that came free with a couple of magazines. The glitter paper used was from The Works.

Good Bless

Cards not good enough!

It's so lovely to see some sunshine today! These are two of my cards which were submitted for the Cardmaker of the year competition but were not deemed good enough to even get a runner up prize.  I am very disappointed  but as a friend keeps saying 'It is what it is' ! 

The first card uses a lot of different paper crafting techniques and to be honest I am really proud of it. What does not show up well is that the flowers are actually decoupaged as well. 

Just want to say a huge thank you to all those who visit my blog and especially those who leave a message. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. x

Tag Tuesday

Thank you the lovely comments on the photos of our holiday. When we lost of beautiful Skipper in January we decided it was time for a holiday as we had not had one for a long time. When we booked it we had no idea we would have two more cats this year! lol  Patch and Flower did very well in the cattery but the journey home was not a good one. They are both enjoying being back home.

Took a little break from all the washing and  other chores to make this tag. The background was made with acrylic paints, a UNIKO stencil and the  Gelli plate. The Tim Holtz cat image was stamped and cut out with the matching die. The cat was coloured with watercolours.  The sentiment was from a 7Gypsie's stamp set I bought over 10 years ago and never used. 😁

Had some amazing experiences which will remain with us forever.

Norway trip and card

We had a wonderful time in Norway. Unlike some on the ship we were very lucky to see the Northern Lights two nights in a row. The photos above were taken by the people who arranged the outing. It was down to minus 22 degrees Celsius but  we had clear skies  in Alta.  We also got to play with lots of Huskies in Tromso and Alta. Had a wonderful sled ride in Tromso with some of these dogs. Was a truly amazing experience.
The card below is on of the 10 made for charity raffle. 

The kitties had a nice time in the cattery but did not like the ride home. We had to clean up a lot of poop and sick when we got home. Not to worry they are both fine. 

Back to normal life tomorrow.

Pink Halloween tag

Spent time after work doing a bit of crafting. All the stamps used in this tag are from Third Cost Stamps (no longer in business).  I used glitter pens from The Works to colour the woman and the Halloween. The background was done on my gelli press,  acrylic paints and Carabelle Studio art  texture stamp. The bat dies are Spellbinders which I bought in a charity shop.

Thank you for  visiting and taking time to leave a comment. 
Have a blessed week.

Swapped the craft room cleaning for two hours of gardening this morning.  I am so tired!!!
Saw Julie's great card and decided to make a bookmark using a left over strip of card. 

All three four stamps in this bookmark are from UNIKO Originally Organic Clear Stamp set. I coloured the flower and leaves with some dye based pens.  Used a 4B pencil to add shadow to the image.

Challenge card

Been slogging away at getting my craft room sorted. Two days and I have one corner sorted!

Decide to take a break and make a card. I used one of the images from Beccy Muir's Welcome Home stamp set.  I coloured the image with watercolours.  The word was a free stamp with a magazine.

Have a lovely day.

Have a great day.
