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 a teaching assistant, looking after my son, daughter and hubby Gary. Not forgetting our two mad springer spaniels, Suzi and Jess.

The start of things to come........

Yippee! The Easter holidays are here and not too soon. Owing to my current situation (after a little surgery of a delicate nature :-/) I am unable to sit on my toosh for too long so my crafting is limited to short spurts. This is not the card that I started today but it is one that I have managed to complete.  Before I went into hospital on Thursday I ordered a wee stash of stamps from bee-crafty (a stand I completely overlooked whilst I was gleefully filling up my basket with new distress ink colours) and low and behold on my groggy return from said outing I was greeted by a lovely envelope filled with my goodies.  

Like I said it was a very quick card but hopefully I will be blogging a little more regular this week.  I hope you have enjoyed looking at my blog, I love to hear your comments and thoughts.

Crafty hugs,
