Bah Humbug


This is most definitely not my own sentiment! I have made this for some one who is a real Bah Humbug person. I used a Christmas Carol stamp set, and stamped out the houses and Mr Scrooge, and coloured them all before fussy cutting and adhering them to my prepared canvas. I found an old fashioned lamp stamp too, and just in case things were not gloomy enough I added in Eeyore! 

I generously used texture paste smothered with fine glitter for snow, and added a small twig as a tree. After stamping and colouring some holly leaves at the top of the canvas, I flicked white acrylic paint over the scene as falling snow. Of course I did not forget to add the large Bah Humbug sign to the tree!

Thank you for visiting xx

Star Of Wonder



I have made this canvas for a friend, who lives opposite the golf club, so he often has foxes visiitng him. One winter he took many photos of a fox happily playing in the snow outside his house. So I tried to recreate that scene for this canvas.

I used a wood fox from Calico Craft Parts, and painted him with acrylics, and added a fluffy tail from some needle felting wool. A brick stencil was useful to suggest his house, and texture paste covered with glitter worked as snow. I also added a some twigs and trees, and my finishing touch was to add battery operated lights.

Thank you for visiting me today, how is  your Christmas crafting going. xx

Festival of Remembrance


It was an honour to attend the Royal Festival of Remembrance at The Royal Albert Hall yesterday evening. At one point it looked doubtful that I would be well enough to attend, but fortunately, I was able to pay my respects to all those including many members of my own family who fought and died for our Great Country. It was moving, beyond words. 
Lest We Forget





Her Majesty The Queen, and members of the Royal Family.


After The Queen had left, they played Land of Hope and Glory, and the armed forces mingled together and some picked up handfuls of the fallen poppies.

Moon Gazing Fox


It is good to be crafting again, after being very unwell. I am rather late with my second guest project for Calico Crafts, and I want to thank them so much for being very kind and understanding.  I love creating with their products which are fabulous, and there are so many to choose from! The possibilities are endless. There are more details about my Moon Gazing plaque over on Calico Crafts and Parts blog, so I hope you can pay them a visit. 

I also need to thank Happy Little Stampers for selecting my Never Lose Your Sense of Wonder watercolour card as a winner. For some odd reason, which I still have not worked out, I am unable to comment on some blogs and Happy Little Stampers is one of them. 

Thank you for visiting me today, I hope you all is ok with you, I will visiting everyone’s blogs soon. xx

In a world where you can be anything be kind


Another card featuring one of my favourite sentiment stamps, “In a world where you can be anything be Kind” I love swans, they are so elegant and majestic. We have a pair of beautiful swans  living on our local pond.

I used water colours to create my background, and various stamps. I added some brown fun flock to the reeds, to give them some texture. 

Thank you for visiitng, I would like to enter this card into the following challenges.
