About Me

My photo
Hi I'm Clare, I live in the South West of England in the seaside town of Torquay. I adore playing with inks, paints and generally getting messy. It is the calm place which fits in between my hectic life whilst working as an outreach support worker, looking after my son, daughter, foster son and hubby. Not forgetting our gorgeous springer spaniel, Suzi.

Blogging In my Jim jams!

I thought Sunday was supposed to be a day of rest pffft! After the vast amount of housework (extra dust due to new bathroom being created) washing, cleaning and cooking...... You know the drill, finally after finishing the roast I have managed to get in and start crafting.  I was having a mess around last night and as a result this is what I ended up with.

The stamps are paper mania dragon flies, there were 3 on one stamp but I cut them all up so that I could use them individually.  the background is a mask which I inked with clear in then embossed with verdigris embossing powder

I layered up the dragonflies with some more die cuts and then embossed a square piece of card using a creative expressions mask and added some pearly dots.

I added some turquoise organza ribbon and made just a plain white flower and embellished with a sparkly flower.

Thank you for taking the time to visit my blog I am hoping to get around to everyone this week.

Crafty hugs,
