Hello all - wow - it was a good day yesterday ....I broke up from school for the summer - so school's officially out for me - whoop whoop!!! And I went to see Lucy's school music festival - it was brilliant! All the better for knowing that Lucy's house won overall! The standard was fabulous though.
Today I have a card to share that was made for my brother in law - he likes a vino or two!!!
I used a blueprint stamp set from Tim Holtz and a brusho background...
Hello there! How are you? I hope you are well. We are good and rolling ever closer to the end of term on Thursday ....how exciting - since I've been working in the school where I was doing the invigilating 3-4 days a week for the past 4 weeks, I am so looking forward to the holidays with the girls. It will be good to do some relaxing but of course, typical of me we have got lots planned!
Last Saturday myself, my mum and Lucy and Penny all went to a class run by Jenny Marples and Elizabeth Robinson. It was organised by Sharon from Rowantree Crafts and took place in Carnforth. So lovely to see both Jenny and Elizabeth...both such lovely ladies. In the class we used Eileen Hulls wrap around journal die and all made a journal.
Here's a look at the completed album. We used distress oxides and 7 gypsies papers and allandcreate stamps. A great day ....
Here we are hard at work - you can just spy me on the far table!!!
Hello lovelies - well its been a busy old week - thank goodness its the weekend - time to breathe and time to blog about last weekends class with Tracey Scott from Paperartsy! It was fabulous. Thanks to Sharon from Rowan Tree Crafts for organising! Here's what I made....
It measures 12" x 12". I adore it - and what a fabulous day - there were papers and tearing and paint and stamping and fussycutting galore - I won't document the steps here in fairness to Tracey - but it was lots of fun!
This week has also been a time for theatre - we went to see the sound of music at a local school - it was amazing... We also went to the play in the park in Lancaster last night - the three Musketeers... it was fun - especially the orange ball. And tonight we've been at a night of music hosted by Lucy and Penny's piano teacher where lots of students played - including the girls!
Tomorrow we are off to a workshop with Jenny Marples and Elizabeth Robinson - can't wait!!!
Hello there! How are you? I hope you are good. I have a card on the Countryview Challenges blog today and here it is here on my blog. The theme this month is 'In the summer Garden'. This time I chose to use a JOFY set of stamps and made a card that I gave my mum for her birthday!
I started with a distress oxide background and stamped the stems and leaves on to it. I used distress oxides and inks to add further colour to the leaves and stems. Next I used brushos and created a red/orange background and stamped on the flower heads and then fussy cut them. I then coloured the centres in brown and added the heads to the card..
I also added the sentiment from the stamp set and some Chocolate Baroque bees...
Here's a proper close up of the flowers...love these flowers!!!
Hope you enjoy this piece and might even join us in the challenge!
