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.

Birthday Blog

Well yes it was my birthday yesterday and no I didn't make my own card but I am blogging a card that I made for my son, William, whose birthday it was a couple of weeks ago.


I used a stamp which is from a selection of my favourites from Bee Crafty Banksy range

For this card I used a selection of stamps from various companies.

  • Banksy inspired boy
  • Inkylicious chicken wire
  • Inkylicious splat stamp
  • Inkylicious rain drops
  • Imagination harlequin mask



My son has just turned 15 so the card was right up his street. Ususally when they are that age they are so very unimpressed by anything but he was very pleased with his card and I know that it will make it into his collection of cards that I have made for him over the years.


Just a quick blog from me today, I shall be back with my official Bee Crafty blog tomorrow morning.
Have a great weekend peeps!
Crafty hugs,
Clare x x x x
