Bunny Burrow

I always wanted to live in a house built into the hillside when I was a little girl. We go down to Cornwall every couple of years and always visit a place called Hidden Valley Discovery Park  where you have a tonne of clues to follow to solve a mystery. The adults and the kids love it. The kids love finding the clues and watching the adults scratch their heads trying to figure it out. One year a clue was 7+8+5+9+1+0+7+6+88=9 We decided to go for a coffee as we were stumped! It was then my husband started to doodle and colour in the 0's on each number!!!!! Bingo!!! The answer was found purely by accident but had 6 adults staring at it for some time. We first went the year Jack was born and have watched it grow and develop over the years. A few years ago they built a hobbit hole and I swear it is just like this stamp!!

I purchased this pull tab die on a whim. It looked good but I am not sure I would use it. It frightened me a little and looked complicated. I was very wrong it was just so so easy.

Greeting Card Made with Left Overs

While tidying out some boxes I came across this image which I had stamped, coloured and fussy cut at some point but I had forgotten about, I have no idea what my original intent had been for it. But it is way to cute to be left unloved


Greeting Card Clearly Besotted July Release

Image
I was really excited to get my hands on one of the July releases from Clearly Besotted. I could not afford them all and found it a very difficult decision picking which set I wanted. I eventually settled on Tree house treasures. Here is my first creation with it

Greeting Card Namaste

Image
Todays handmade greeting card is yoga inspired. I  am really missing my yoga lesson, I turned up at my first ever yoga session with a BMI of just 17.3 and had never done any yoga in my life. My body was weak and as tired physically as was I mentally. I felt betrayed by my body, it had snatched my health and with it an awful lot of my fight. I am a runner, the world seems brighter and problems pale into insignificance as my feet pound the pavement but I had been told by my medical team that I must under no circumstances go running. My weight meant that I would be placing my heart under too much stain. I need to exercise for my sanity I wailed at my sister in law. Try yoga she tentively suggested. I laughed yoga, but that is too gentle I need to feel like my lungs are bursting....
She won me round and how wrong was I was. My lungs do feel like they are bursting at times as I tense every part of my body to stay in a position. But In the same session I can feel that odd calm as I focus pur…

Everyone needs a unicorn

Background Stencil Card

Image
Stencils are not something I normally reach for but I had an impulse buy in the early hours of the morning the other night. I normally avoid them, I am not sure if I think they are too fiddly. 
I had visited the Polkadoodles site to investigate 'stamp soup' which sounded very intriguing and came across this cloud and grass stencil. Of course a bit of stamp soup also fell into the virtual basket. But I digress 
So when they arrived I just had to have a little play....
