About Me

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.

Clare DT- Value of a moment

Good morning fellow bloggers. It's a lovely sunny morning here in Torbay which is fabulous after the torrential downpour we had yesterday. Long may the sunshine remain! I am here with my weekly Bee Crafty spot and this weeks card does have a bit of a summer feel with it's beachy scene.



For this card I used:

Wordage - Value of a memory stamp

Beautanicals - Ferns

Inkables heart template

Distress inks

Just a clean and simple card this week brushing my distress inks through the inkables template. I also stamped some ferns through the template to create some depth. Once I removed the inkables heart i continued stamping with the fern and finally I stamped the sentiment.

I am finally on my holidays and hoping to be blogging a little more frequently. I have however had the inconvenience of breaking my elbow this week! Fortunately it was my left arm and as I am right handed it shouldn't hold me back too much. I am feeling a little foolish though! When you announce at A & E that you injured yourself rollerskating you get that all knowing look. Oh dear, at my age I really should know better!

Thank you for taking the time to stop by today. I will hopefully see you in the week with some more crafty moments. Remember you can leave your comments below and follow by clicking on one of the links above.
