Hello there - December 1st! How did that happen? I am here with the new Challenge for Countryview Challenges - and its a nice easy one - Christmas!
I have made some Christmas themed seeded cards using some lovely images from Chocolate baroque.

Hello there! How are you? I seem to be very busy with craft fairs but very glad to have finished teaching. I won't ever make a living at these fairs but its fun trying! I did one yesterday which didn't go so well - but I guess you have to take the rough with the smooth - and it takes time to learn what sells and where the best fairs are. At least it didn't cost me anything!
Today its another outing for the Christmas Card Club. The theme this fortnight is Christmas Crackers - I failed this time with the theme and have gone instead for anything goes.

How are you doing? I am over on the Countryview Crafts Challenge site today with a second make for the current challenge of Halloween or Harvest - this time I have done harvest. I found some seeded paper and have made some cards using this. Each card can be torn up and planted by the recipient! A card that just keeps giving!

Hello there! Well its time for yet another outing of the Christmas card club. This fortnight we want to see snowglobes - I think this is my mums challenge. I made 4 cards using a stamp from IndigoBlu with a beautiful snowglobe on it.

Hello there! I am hoping this publishes as I will be at work and unable to check when it goes live - sure it will though! Another fortnight has rolled around and the theme this time at Christmas card club is diecuts. I decided to use one that I had never had out of the packet - a scribbly tree from Tim Holtz - I love it - its a much bigger die than I thought - really pleased with having used it! I made 4 variations on a theme having already made a number of gel press backgrounds.

Well its October - I can hardly believe it! How did that happen? Anyway - the good news is that its time for a new challenge at Countryview Challenges - and the theme is Halloween - love it or hate it - or Harvest! My make is probably more Halloween but kind of Harvest too - with the Harvest moon.

Hello there! Its time for another Christmas Card Club outing. This fortnight the theme is Christmas trees. I am currently very busy making stuff for an art fair stall and have only had chance to upcycle cards this time. My mu has made cards using hunky dory toppers.

Hello there lovelies. Well its been a busy September already - I had my opening night in the village play on Friday night - and closing one last night. All was good and felt good to be performing again - our first in person play since lockdown ...we did a couple of radio plays but this was much more fun!
I start a new job today - in the village shop - and then I'm back to teaching on Monday - I wonder which I'll prefer??? Times are changing!
So this fortnight at Christmas card Club the theme is kraft - I have used a fabulous new design from Pink ink - not sure I like the kraft card treatment of the image - but \i love the design. It may return next fortnight!

Hello there! Well its time to start yet another month - oh my goodness - I wish time would stop racing away! That's the school holidays over - and back to work for me today - at least until the end of October when I will be leaving my current job - counting the days now!
Its time for a new challenge at Countryview Challenges and the theme this month is Seasons of mist and mellow fruitfulness. Here's my first make for the theme. A card I will use for my brother in laws birthday I think.

Well its been a busy old fortnight and I haven't had chance to make any new cards for this challenge this time - but I have recycled three cards from last Christmas for this theme - here they are.
