 If you go down to the woods today you better go in disguise. Todays Team Tiny YouTube hop involves shaped cards and it is ages since I have made a rocker card 

Sorry you feel like crepe

All good things must come to an end and as such this is my last post as a member of the Not 2 Shabby Design Team. The digital design team is being retired.

Sunset friends

 I do love a good sunset and who better to watch it with than your 4 legged fur friend

Bun Rab

My daughter Martha has a bunny that used to go everywhere and the floppy ears of this bunny remind me of that 


These two bed heads seem to be having  a bit of a stand off with the gulls. Which one will make it to the message in the bottle first 


 I was honoured to be asked to guest design for the fabulous Sweet November Stamps. They are one of my favourite brands



Sweet November Stamps Merwees and Fairwees always reminds me of my cousin. Growing up she always called me Care Wees instead of Claire Louise and even now she does it

Love is in the air

 These cute little moles are feeling the love but I am sure glad that they are not digging those mole hills in my lawn

Sweet November New Release

Crafty Purple Frog is the UK exclusive stockist of Sweet November Stamps and we have there being invited to participate in the Instagram hop to celebrate their new release. Being Mer-May it is of course mermaid themed. 


 So them cute cups are up again and this time it needs to be a scene card. They make me think of cocktails at some exotic beach bar!! Oh my, it has been some years....

Bes-Teas IG Hop

It is ages since I made a shaker card so thought what better way to celebrate the new release over at Not 2 Shabby then with a shaker.

A rebrand

 Well I will not begin to bore you with the problems I have had with technology since Christmas. After giving up and vowing to never blog again after having another major tantrum at the stupid computer, I walked away but have come back with more patience and a clear mind and I am finally back in Blogger!!

So what better way to celebrate than with a little rebrand? As I have developed myself as as artist I have found what I do and do not like to play with. Lets be honest my pens had to feature heavily in my branding.


This months cute digital release from Not 2 Shabby Shop is this extremely versatile pancake stack
