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 Fairies

Just a quick mid-week blog from me. It's my daughters birthday next week and I'm grabbing this opportunity, whilst she is on a sleepover at nannies house, to make her card well in advance.

I am enjoying my long awaited half-term but I fear that the list of need to do is outweighing the want to do list! Although I have booked myself an appointment at a spa on Friday, every girl needs a pampering once in a while......surely?

So trying to claw back some time I decided to make my daughters card this months lavinia challenge entry. Nothing like killing two birds with one stone.


I would like to enter the above card into the following challenge http://laviniastamps.com/blog/lavinia-stamps-challenge-10-autumn-colours/


Thank you for taking the time to look at my blog, I look forward to hearing your comments.
