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.

Wedding Season

Howdy folks. It's been a while since I blogged. I've been busy at work and with my children. After spending an afternoon at a &e with my son this week (another broken finger, second one in twelve months) and then a visit to fracture clinic, I am really glad of a 3 day weekend. In fact I think that a three day weekend should be compulsory, I'm sure many of you would agree.

One of my close friends was going to a wedding and asked me if I would make her a card. I took my inspiration from my auntie who has a fabulous blog glitterarti1.blogspot.com. She made a stunning card for her sister in-law and I decided to go along with that style with a few differences.http://glitterarti1.blogspot.co.uk/2013/04/as-promisedross-70th-birthday-card.html

I used my musical flourish embossing folder for the four panels in the background and the marriane creatables dies for the centre piece. Embellished with butterflies (x-cut nesting dies) and topped of with liquid pearls.

Hopefully my craft things will be littering the dining room at some point this weekend and I will have some more things to blog. Still have a project on the boil which I brought back from my visit to Barbara, time I pulled my finger out and finished it off!

Happy bank holiday. Love and hugs to you all. X x x
