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.

A well travelled card!

Well in true blue Peter style..... Here's one I made earlier. I started this picture when I went to visit my auntie in Chippenham a couple of weeks ago and finally I have got round to finishing off.

I used the Lavinia texture stamp and topped it off with some liquid pearls, the trees and the sentiment is from an inkylicious set. I added some ribbon and altered some card candy with some alcohol inks and die cut some flowers on photo paper and they had a splash or two of ink as well!

My hands are now a greeny gold colour along with nail stainage! My dining room table has been overtaken by crafty goodies (eating in the front room tomorrow) but had a marvellous time.

Thank you for your kind regards about my sons finger. Although he had a misfortune this week he was still able to go out fishing with my husband today and a worthwhile trip it was too. He managed to beat a club record and haul in a monster bullhuss of 13lb 6oz. His dad is of course very proud, as was I when he had stripped and showered so I could give him a celebratory hug.

Hopefully will blog again soon. I hope everyone is having a wonderful long weekend. Love and hugs. X x x x

    1. Thanks barb. I really must invest in some more stamps though. Keep coming back to the same ones. Is that a good enough reason to buy some more or do I need to justify it a little bit more ;-)

  5. Wow! That fish is almost as big as him lol! Lovely Clare, beautiful design and techniques used! And of course you need more stamps, not that there's anything wrong with using favourites over and over, but it's nice to have variety in order to experiment, has your Aunty taught you nothing? Lol xx
