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 an outreach support worker, looking after my son, daughter, foster son and hubby. Not forgetting our gorgeous springer spaniel, Suzi.

Father's Day blog

I am sure that last year I was far more organised for Father's Day.  By the skin of my teeth I've just about made it and completed my bundle of cards for this year.  It's funny but my hubby always ends up with loads of cards as I make one from both of the children, my daughter Sophie makes her own and also ends up bringing home the obligatory school made card.

I am starting to find male cards a bit easier now.  I challenge myself when crafty shopping to always find male orientated stamps and images and although very nautical, my male stash is starting to take shape.  That's not to say I don't need more! ;-)

I shall be back soon with an update on Oak House Studio's new challenge for the month.  It is well worth an entry as there is a fabulous prize of £40 to spend at the online shop where there is a great choice of stamps and the fabulous colour chemistry inks and stamp pads.  All of the above have been stamped using their ink pads.

That's me for now.

I hope you are all looking forward to a crafty weekend.

Big hugs,

Clare x x x x x
