About Me

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.

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
