Winter village at Christmas Card Club

 Hello there,

Its Christmas card club Sunday again and the theme this fortnight is winter village...I had great plans for this wonderful theme but sadly time is against me as always - so I have made only one very quick and not very impressive card using some gorgeous stamps from Hobby art.

Not so much a village as a farm but its the best I could come up with in time available. 
My mum made a lovely card using an older Clarity stamp with a design by Jayne Nestorenko

So there we have it! Looking forward to seeing what my team mates have come up with although there does seem to be less and less of us. I am wondering whether this will be the last year of Christmas card club.
Big hugs

Penguins at Christmas Card Club

 Hello there! I do hope you are well and happy! Things here are busy but luckily invigilating has finished now for the summer so that gives me a little more breathing space. Drama has also finished so although I am busy ...its not as stretched as it was!

This fortnight the CCC theme is Penguins - I treated myself to a Woodware stamp and made three cards...

I have stamped the images and cut them out then added them to pre existing gel press backgrounds - must make some more of these as they make for good cards I think.

Mum has been busy too....she has used a sweet poppy stamp and dies from her stash.

I hope you have a lovely Sunday!

Foxy friends

 Hello there - time for me to post again about 4 legged friends - this time I have gone for Mr Fox and his Friend Ms Fox.

I have used Lavinia stamps, distress oxides Lost Shadow and Hickory smoke and versafine clair nocture to create this card. A misty scene indeed.
Hope you have a great day!

4 legged Friends at Countryview Challenges.

 Hello there - July? Really? This year is just running away from me! Anyway, being the first its time for a new challenge at Countryview challenges and this time the theme is 4 legged friends. I have two very different takes on this theme - but each contains one of my favourite 4 legged friends.

For this first one I have included a Pink Ink image - I love this little guy and am rather fond of lizards - I have lots of them as ornaments in my home - hence my choice here.

My second make for this theme includes stamps from HobbyArt. I love these new farm scene sets and enjoyed putting this scene together using at least 4 different stamps. 

I can't wait to see what my team mates come up with!
You can find their inspiration and a linky to join in here.
Big hugs
