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

End of half term......... Boo hoo :-(


Well it's the end of half term and whilst many of you are looking forward to the school run on Monday it means that my alarm will be waking me to go back to work.  Still I have had a rather productive week with a few cards completed and a couple of new projects on the boil.




A friend of ours turned 40 last week so just had to make a card. I always find male cards quite difficult but over the summer I did invest in some male influenced stamps, in this case fish being the theme! 





 

I found some card that I had spritzed with cosmic shimmer spray then stamped my image, masked and stamped inkylicious crackle stamp over the top then added some sparkly embossing powders.




Well I do have some more projects on the go and despite going back to school on Monday I will hopefully find some time to blog.  My special little lady turns ten on Tuesday so will definitely be blogging her card at some point next week.

Have a crafty weekend peeps, big hugs!
