Dance love smile

Sunday Stampers put a frame on it .
Used distress inks and stains abandoned coral mermaid lagoon cracked pistachio dried marigold wild honey seedless preserve dusty concord tumbled glass squeezed lemonade .
Used Kaiser Kraft stamps and a swirl from paper artsy .
The butterfly and flowers are Tim Holtz large alteration dies .
Made a change from Browns and purples .
Crackle accents on the frame and treasure gold here and there .
Think I would have put some more flowers on but I ran out of time ,really enjoyed doing this and finally cracked my rose centers thanks to Pauline Wheeler visiting our Lovely town .
Had a really couple of bad days so this cheered me up .
Happy days xx

Never ending card

So Saturday's workshop at Craftmania with the very talented Jamie Rodgers had us making this never ending card .
It's was surprisingly easier than i thought it would be .
It started life as 4 rectangular pieces of card strategically stuck together then most of the time was spent decorating it .
It's called never ending as you can just keep on opening it .
It's fun !

As you can see many different sides

Long time no Blog

Ok so haven't been on here for a while time sort of stood still last year with my Mum being diagnosed with Altzeimers and sorting out things for her with the rest of the family . Followed by shingles and a major operation in May . But there were good time my Daughter got married in June and my Son got Married in August it was so nice to see and be part of their wonderful days . The rest of my year I spent learning to crochet at our local craftmania shop going to workshops there for paper crafting and meeting some wonderful people which is what I needed . So hopefully Incan get back to blogging regularly again instead of haunting Facebook 😊. So here is a selection of everything I have done last year and you are getting it all at once . Good to be back .
