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.

Courage Dear Heart



“But no one except Lucy knew that as it circled the mast it had whispered to her, "Courage, dear heart," and the voice, she felt sure, was Aslan's, and with the voice a delicious smell breathed in her face.”

 C.S. Lewis,  The Voyage of the Dawn Treader 

 I used watercolours  to create my background and versafine black ink to stamp over the top.

Golden Wings


Well the sunny weather has certainly returned with us here, with temperatures up to 31c !

I have been relaxing doing some drawing and painting. I used the Paperbabe template for my face and neck, I altered it a little and then drew the rest. I discovered that I am not too good at drawing fairy wings! I used a gold pen to draw in lots of little details on the wings to try and improve them !

I would like to enter her into this months Paperbabe Challenge “Gold” her earrings and hair pin thingy are also gold.

Let’s hope this lovely weather lasts, thank you for visiitng me today xx
