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.

Happy birthday to you!

Just a quick blog from me today. Yesterday it was my aunties birthday. As a fellow crafter she has always encouraged and inspired me with my crafting. So of course a special make was in order.

With a lot of crafting going on I still haven't started sorted out the cellar. I'm going to have to pull my finger out if I want my own craft room, all this procrastination is not getting me any closer to achieving my own crafty space. I still have a few weeks left of the holidays so I am sure it will happen some time soon.


For this card I have used all Lavinia stamps.



I would like to enter this card into the following challenge: Lavinia stamp challenge # 8 Add some glitter


Thank you for taking the time to look at my blog. I love to hear your comments.
