My day at Clarity Cumbria

Hello there! How are you? I hope you are well. I am good apart from a sore leg - I think I did something whilst running Sunday morning - decided to rest my leg today so hopefully that will help! That and my foam roller!!!

I've got my makes from Clarity Cumbria to share with you today. Its was a lovely day - we all had lots of fun!

Here's my notebook I made - really had lots of fun doing this! The colours all came from indigoblu luscious powders plus a little gilding wax.

The stencils I used were a combination of Tim Holtz and Clarity. Many of the bits and bobs were from prima, some Tim Holtz plus a couple of shapes from NZ!

This was a lovely card to make - i first randomly gessoed on kraft card then when it was dry I used stencils and distress inks to complete the background - plus a posca pen. The butterfly is from Clarity as is the friendship stamp!

A lovely day was had by all. Sunday was good too. Penny had her first gymnastics competition - she did really well - sadly not good enough to get a podium place but I think she was brilliant! Her best friend came first - that could be a bit tricky!!! Seriously though she was very pleased that her friend did so well!

Have a great Monday!
