About Me

My photo
Hi I'm Clare, and as you can probably tell by my blog name I love to craft. It is a hobby of mine which I fit in my hectic life whilst working as a teaching assistant in a primary school, looking after my son, daughter and hubby Gary. Not forgetting our two mad springer spaniels, Suzi and Jess.

A blog before bedtime.

No I couldn't suppress my creativity today if I tried! After whipping up cup cakes, lemon drizzle cake and cheese scones for the family, I slammed in the lamb roast, cleared away and returned to my craft table :-)

It was a quick effort really.  I wanted to try out some of my new cosmic shimmer mists ( as demonstrated by my aunt recently)  so I sprayed my mat and dipped and sprayed etc and ended up with some lovely backgrounds to make some cards. 

 Couldn't stop there, I die cut some card using an x cut die and inked a background using distress inks.  I used the Lavinia stamps to put on geese, willow leaves and textured edge in black ink.

  Yes the mica powders were allowed out again too! I embossed one of my pieces of sprayed card then applied versa mark and it had a touch more of mica too!

Hope you enjoy.

Love and hugs x x x x
