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.

Playing with the crazies!



What better to do on a drizzly Sunday afternoon than a little bit of colouring in!  Except once I'd finished colouring in these crazy birds I couldn't help but turn them into some birthday cards.  


Since I have been painting a lot my birthday cards box has somewhat depleted and needed to be replenished 


I used distress markers to colour in my birdies.  With a mixture of my Tim Holtz layering stencils and some other favourites I distress inked my background.


I also added some darker stencilling and some black stamping.


To the eyes, beaks and wings I applied some glossy accents for dimension.


To finish off I doodled with a Posca pen.

I hope you have enjoyed your visit today?  If you have I love to hear your comments.  You can leave these below.

Enjoy the rest of your weekend.

Crafty hugs,
