Back to school - too early

Hi there

Thank you for popping in to see me today.

Have to say that I have been so busy making some clothes that I have not 
been around to post my cards. 

That has been happening in the background. 

It was my Grand-daughters birthday this month - 20 years old 

WHERE does the time go. 

Anyway here is my card for the mid month inspriation 
over at LTSCB

I hope you like it 



I have used my alcohol pens to colour in and used distress inks for the back ground 

Mounted onto black card and onto a green card blank. 

Its a bit difficult to see the names I have spotted 2 so far. 

Think it may be a nice card for my Grandson who is 7 next month. 

Hope to see you over at Love to Scrap Challenge Blog 

Have a good day

People will forget



HI there

Thank you for joining me today to see what I am up too

Here is my card which I have made for the challenge over at

Love to Craft Challenge Blog as a Design Team member.

I really enjoyed making this card starting with a blank white bit of card.


I will show you via photos on the steps to make this card

The reflection in the "water" has been done by using a Gelli plate.



I have used Clarity Stamps and brushes to make this card with distress inks.



Well I hope I have given you some encouragement to join us over
on the blog and I look forward to seeing your entries.

Bye for now

summer holidays

Morning all 

Been playing with my stamps and inks again today 

Bit of a worry this morning as Mum is back in hospital having had a fall while on 
holiday in the early hours of this morning 

But in between messages and all here is my entry for the 

Clarity Stamp Challenge this month over on FB



Started off with white card which I stamped the glasses on first 
and then used masks to blank off the hills etc 





Used various inks to make the background 


Then I added the various bibs and bobs for the sceen 

Hope you like it

Best dash as the phone is ringing again. 

Knew Mum was not fit enough to go on holiday only arrived yesterday

and now in hospital. 

Oh before I go thank you all for your lovely comments about my tunic
really getting into this sewing now. 

Watch this space.

sewing revolution

Good morning all

Well I have been more involved with sewing over the last few weeks, 
I have been so inspired with materials that I have been making 
bags and zip bags and this week my first item of clothing

It has been many many years since I made something and although it 
may not be totally right. 

I am pleased with it. 

While in the making Den thought it was an apron due to the pockets, so I said I need something 
for my tissues. 

Well it is a tunic. It needs a bit of tweaking today the ties are a bit high for me. 

Going to try making a top today, but think the pattern is a bit big - 
so not sure if it will be ok.... make and then adjust maybe. 

I have the problem of big boobs and big hips (at the moment) although I am very pleased 
to say I have lost a stone in weight 

So here is the photo of the tunic 




Well best be going I have added my photo to Jeniffer Taylor's Facebook site under the 
#sewingrevolution 

Have a great day

Gillyflowers


Hi there

Well thought I would just pop in this morning with my card for the latest challenge 
over at 


My plan was to go out into the garden to pick the blackcurrants but it is raining 
again. But today I really must pick them and not have the problem I had the other day

The blackbirds ate all my gooseberries during the rain !!!

Well here is my card 

I have used Serif programme to make this card topper. 

Printed it off on our new printer and mat and layered onto a card blank. 

I hope you like it I have used the name of gillyflowers for this picture trying to 
create a flower meadow with apricot colour flowers 



Have a good day and catch up again soon

Goldfish

Hi there

Been a bit of awhile since I was last here. 

Busy doing the garden picking the fruit and getting into my sewing 

Here is my card for this months Challenge over at 

LTSCB

I have used Limited Run - Goldfish image 


The fish I have printed on special paper and flipped a set of the images to make them 
swim the other way.



I have used the background which I have made using a stencil, grunge paste and miro beads




Then used a bit of material from my latest "bargain Bag" and made the seaweed.






Then spent bit of time using my alcohol pens to colour in, cut out and then 
construct the picture. 

Blue card stock with a circle
