Hollyhocks......



This is a another of my sample cards I made when were were doing watercolouring in our craft club a couple of months ago....I've used Penny Blacks Hollyhock stamp layered the image up onto a Marianne Creatable die and a paper doily....backing paper is from SU.

Last night we went to the theatre to see the singer Russell Watson  but after sitting in our seats for almost half an hour after the performance was due to start we were told he had a throat infection and couldn't sing...I was so gutted...they are hoping to reschedule just hope we dont have to wait too long...

Its a beautiful day here certainly too nice to be sat on my PC but just finishing off a birthday card then off to patchwork....

Club night...


It was out club night last night and the girls made an Iris Folding card they either had the pink  (as above) and also blue....we hadn't done Iris folding for ages...
We had lots of samples on our table from the Stampin Up Moon Lake stamp set and the girls could select which one card they wanted to make or even just stamp lots of images to take home and make their cards there......here's just one of my samples...I used watercolour paper and kept the images quite subtle...

The weather is glorious here in Somerset today and I hope it is where you are...taking a crafting break for a few days... but need to also go fabric hunting as Grace's brother wants a Spider Man quilt.....one thing you can say my hands are never idle...lOl..lOl....

Pixies Snippets Playground week 170....

I've missed a couple of Pixies Snippets challenges  but managed to find enough snippets to use with this SU Young Vermillion stamp image that has beenin my box for ages...
The 'mesh' corners are from Tim Holts Mixed media dies...I also used the 'waste' as a stencil for the background which seemed to work well and also used an old Stamp in the Hand.stamp called 'field of sky' and added the little 'dots..
Foiliage is bits from a SU Wilson die Grand Vinery die....

Just noticed my cards not striaght....sorry

Hopefully the weather will improve a little bit for Easter as its still quite chilly...

Potting shed.....

I just love the paper pad called The Poptting Shed from Craftwork cards and with the die cuts you can makes  quick and easy cards..all elements except the die cut water spray, ribbon and button are from Craftwork Cards.

Its a horrible wet and windy morning down here in Somerset so its the craft room for me today...

Hopefully you all remembered to put your clocks forward an hour...it will be lovely to have the lighter evenings..
