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 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.

Hello there! I have a post over on the Countryview Challenges post this month - the theme is Happy Birthday - and since my beautiful Lucy is 16 on the 13th I used this opportunity to make a card for her...Don't worry - she won't see it - she'll be too busy drumming!

Hello there! Well another fortnight has rolled by and its time for our Christmas Card club again - the theme this fortnight is Christmas rose - I love my hellebores in the garden and I love this theme - I have two very so similar stamps from Chocolate baroque and have used them to make 4 cards - I also made an upcycled card too - there was actually one in my cards from last year!
My mum also made two cards using the Christmas rose stamp from Chocolate Baroque.
So that's the Christmas Card Club for another fortnight! Have a lovely Sunday!

Hello there! Well another fortnight has rolled around and I am now officially broken up for the summer holidays - very excited about that as school is becoming a bit of a chore - infact I have handed my notice in and will finish at October half term - can't wait - I will need to look for something else to do though that can wait until September!
Christmas Card Club this fortnight is all about cuteness - cute christmas. I have stamped 4 cards and recycled two this time!

Hello there - well I'm chasing my tail again and getting things made at the very last minute - this time I've at least got the excuse that I was away with lucy in Oxford. A lovely bit of nostalgia for me and a chance for lucy to see where her mum and dad first met.
So here are my makes - I used recycled cards and made them into fancy fold cards - two easels and two z cards.

Well its been a busy week and now here I am at Countryview Crafts again with another travel challenge post.
Friday, 1 July 2022
Hello there! 1st July! How lovely! Time for a new challenge at Countryview challenges where the theme is travel. Today I have a twofer train travel post.
Both cards were made using Hobby Art stamps, coloured using clean colour pens.
The theme is very broad so why not use this opportunity to stock up on some travel themed makes?
You can link up your project - and get full details here.
Have a great day!
