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.

Who said christmas can't be pink?

Well I made it. I am finally on my holidays!  After a week of being at school until 9pm every night I am totally exhausted.  I am so ready for my holidays I have lots planned, no trips as of yet but need to recharge my batteries this week.

Yes I know it's only July but I couldn't resist having a little play with this lovely christmas tree stamp from Bee Crafty.

For this card I have used:

I am entering this card into the following challenge : http://52cct.blogspot.co.uk/2014/07/christmas-in-july-blog-hop.html

I stamped christmas tree and christmas greeting onto my card and then heat embossed with black ep.  I brushed on my background in picked raspberry and then stamped around the edge of the card using black ink and the top of the christmas tree to create a border.  Finally I added liquid pearls and some glitter over the hills and then pearly dots to the sky to create a snowy atmosphere.

Thank you for taking the time to read my post today.  I am very much hoping to find my mojo and get my crafting back on track.  Hope to see you soon.

Big hugs,

Clare x x x
