New Craft Stamper Design

My Craft Stamper arrived today, and it has had a revamp. The new style title is really good with the delicate swirls and splodgy font. I am going to enjoy discovering all the new things inside.
It came at just the right time as I am still not over my infection, but I've finished the antibiotics now, so hope I hope to feel better soon.
Happy Bank Holiday weekend everyone.

Butterfly Tree


I was originally going to make an apple tree for my fathers birthday, but I decided that a butterfly tree would look nicer. But I have since decided to buy him a cherry tree for his birthday. So I am now going to remove some of the butterflies and make some cherries to replace them.
I made the tree from old book pages. I punched out a flurry of butterflies from some pretty Dovecraft paper, and glued them carefully onto the branches.




I coloured the lovely Phyllis Harris little girl stamp with spectrum noir pencils. I placed her underneath the tree and onto a card base which I then covered in flowersoft.


Thank you so much for looking.

I would like to enter my Butterfly tree into the following challenges

New Lavinia Stamps Arrived!

Look what has arrived today! They are gorgeous, I am inspired with all sorts of ideas to create with them. I love the little toadstool, they have a few tiny stamps which are just £1.

I've just got to get rid of another infection, and then I can play.

I have something ready made to put in for the Craft Stamper challenge so I must blog that soon, or August will be over before I know it!

Cliff sings Faithful One at Cillas funeral, he did her proud


I remember as a child watching Cilla Blacks TV shows. 

Cliff sang beautifully at her funeral today, you could see that he had to swallow hard, but he did Cilla proud.

Lavender Tea Cup

This is my first attempt at making a tea cup! I have made an early start making my Christmas gifts. We have friends who always stop in on their way to the Lake District in October so we always give them their Christmas gifts then.

I used Lavinia Stamps Lavender stamp on the tea cup, and their flowers stamp on the saucer. I drew a gold line around the edges and then covered it in glossy accents to make it sturdy but also to give it a glossy China look...
I visited Fortnums and Masons for the first time on Monday, so I picked up, some of their famous tea to sit inside the cup.

Thank you so much for looking.

My birthday is in August, and to celebrate I am giving away a Clarity Stamp Stencil. Also included is a booklet of ideas on how to use it. Which is written by Barbara Gray. More info and to enter here

Miss Meadows



I watched the film Miss Meadows today, and it was very very good.  I highly recommend it.


"Prim schoolteacher Miss Meadows (Katie Holmes) is not entirely what she appears. Well-mannered, sweet, and caring, yes, but underneath the candy-sweet exterior hides the soul of a vigilante, taking it upon herself to right the wrongs in this cruel world by whatever means necessary. Things get complicated, however, when Miss Meadows gets romantically entangled with the town sheriff (James Badge Dale).

The above storyline is from IMDb
