clover


My children loved 'Guess how much I love you, as little kids, the illustrations were so soft and sweet ad one year they bought me a Nut Brown Hare for Mothers day. Anita Jeram illustrated the books and I have been desperate for some of the Colorado Craft Company stamps since I first saw her designs.

Serenity Blossom




This adorable fairy is from the new Serenity range at Polkadoodles. You all know how much I love toadstools so just had to have this adorable fairy

Honour Students

I always thought it would be absolutely amazing to attend a prestigious old school, with its fabulous architecture, so you can imagine my exciting when many moons ago I was accepted to The University of Leeds, I was actually gutted to find out that despite the beauty of some of the buildings on the outside they were very modern inside and the windows did not even match up with some of the floors. I remember being in one seminar room and the windows were at my feet. Lets hope these honour students are not disappointed 

Gned

So I made the decision that I would not be doing as many videos as they are so time consuming, I currently try to do one every day but planned to cut down to a few a week. Anyone I had already half recorded this adorable gnome before I even realised I was doing it

Happy Mail

I decided I would attempt to create a scene using my cute critter stamps. I am finding it very easy now to do them for the more human type of stamps. So why not the critters?


Flying By


One of the design team for Time For Tea Designs used this cover plate with rainbow colours behind it and it looked amazing so decided to give it a go

Forest Fairy

I honestly can not recommend the Kit and Clowder monthly colouring tutorials enough. I am learning so much and have so much confidence now, I literally can not stop colouring up these little scenes. 


Today Odette the beautiful little fairy is playing in the forest which is full of the joys of spring, she has her lovely bright dress on and is practicing balancing on a log over a babbling brook

Dancing with Fairy

I have so many ideas for the new clear stamps by Sweet November Stamps I literally can not get my ideas down fast enough. 

I needed to make dinner but got so enthralled in my colouring I got lost again and so I had a rebellion of starving dictators on my hands

Lets Have Coffee

 A super easy bit of inking today, using the caffeine critters from The Greeting Farm

Swing Card

This swing card is made using a slimline die from Time For Tea Designs. It is super easy to make and super effective

Thanks a Bunch

I adore this written background stamp and feel it will be very versatile. Today I have used it to create a thanks card

Shopping Friends

 I knew when I saw these three ladies that I wanted to colour them up into a shopping theme I just was not too sure how much detail to put into the background and started a couple of times but felt that it was just way to busy. I finally settled on just a partial shop doorway

How is he 12

So Monday morning I woke up to a 12 year old!! How I have no idea, I think I blinked and his childhood was over. He is mad on computer games, especially the switch, mainly as a result of Covid I fear as this was a way to play with his friends. But we do also play quite alot as a family. He is at quite an awkward age but I do think I nailed his card

Best Teacher

 One of the things that drew me to the Creating Chemistry set was its versatility it was suitable for valentines day, graduation and teacher. This year I am getting ahead of the game and have started the thank you teachers cards. I feel they have done amazingly in these strange times. My daughters teacher is teaching and holding online lessons while addressing the mental health needs of this very young population during times of uncertainty

Badger you for a cuppa

Love this sentiment it sounds so Yorkshire and as a Yorkshire lass I love that. Couple him with a bit of British countryside 

Caffeine Critters

A simple colouring/ scene building card today using Caffeine Critters from The Greeting Farm. I wanted them to be sat having a picnic and so decided to put the sentiment in a sign, inspired by a do not walk on the grass sign

Mirror Image Stamping

I have seen so many people take about mirror image stamping but I thought it would be so difficult, let me reassure you it is easy!! Stamp your image onto a silicone mat, lay paper over top and apply pressure. Finished

Crafty Purple Frog The Sett

I was super excited when I saw that Crafty Purple Frog were releasing badgers. I love badgers remind me of Wind in the Willows. I was even more excited when I discovered that the veil could double as a smoking jacket. I have some big plans for this regal creature.

Peek a Wizard

 You all know just how Harry Potter mad my little girl is, so when I saw this stamp by Penny Black, I needed it. It has to be the longest time I have had a stamp without ever inking it up, it has sat unloved for at least 3 weeks, while I have been killing myself desperately trying to decorate our new garden room and get that up and running as a permeant craft space and family games room.


But we are getting somewhere, the plumber is here today and I will be under his feet in there, so I stamped this up, boiled the kettle and have settled down to 30 minutes me time. Long over due....
