A Lazy Saturday


I'm trying to find my mojo again.  So I treated myself to some stamps from Polkadoodles and from Trinity Stamps (at Dies to Die For).

I've just been having a simple play today.  Pro Markers, Watercolours, Die Cutting and Stenciling.  And I have to say I'm pretty happy with the results!

Hope you're having a fun day!

Flowers for a Birthday


I've been having a play with a new set from Stampin' Up! called Pretty Perennials.  I love this kind of stamp set where you can just stamp randomly.   The flowers and leaves in this set are lovely. And I love the flamboyant "happy" as the focal word. 

I might make these in different colours.  I think the flowers would work really well as the front cover of a diary or notebook too.

I hope you're having a great day, whatever you are doing!

Monochromatic with a splash of colour


Well where has the time gone since I last blogged?  I think this has been the longest time away ever for me!  Probably a number of factors to consider... not least a global pandemic sadly. 

My craft space also now doubles as a work space so it feels less like somewhere to escape to.  Other family interests and hobbies have had to stop as they just can't be done with social distancing etc. so there's less "me" time.  And probably the biggest factor, despite trying to have a massive clearout of stuff I just simply wont use anymore (which I did last year!) I still have toooooo much and I can never find what I'm looking for, or I forget I've got it!

I'm going to try though.  Try to do some more tidying, and try to do some more crafting! 

I have been busy making candles - votives, tea lights and wax melts though, so the house does smell gorgeous.  And recycling the wax melts to make tea lights means nothing gets wasted!

This is the first card I've made in ages.  And I felt like a beginner making it.  I didn't even stamp the greeting!  I am quite happy with the water coloured flowers though.
