Sweet Valentine Card




Hello thank you for stopping by, I hope you are well. Today I am sharing an idea for a very sweet Valentines Card, I found the chocolate hearts from Lindt, and thought they would make wonderful balloons. 

I made my card background by using aquamarkers spritzed heavily with water. I stamped the girl with balloons (minus her balloons) I also stamped a few tress for her to be flying past. Some glue dots worked well to keep the chocolate hearts in place, I am  not entirely sure just how long they will stay in place before being gobbled up!

I would like to enter my Sweet Valentine Card into the following challenges, thank you.

Animal Requiem



I was so happy to be able to go to the Animal Requiem at St Johns Church, Piccadilly. To watch the breathtaking service to honour all of our animal friends whom are no longer with us. Just a few days prior I was in hospital on oxygen after a medical procedure did not go very well. I was determined to attend in memory of My Tammy who died almost 19 years ago, I still miss her every day. 


Animal Requiem

I pinned her photo on the special Rembrance Board



I lit a candle for Tammy and my friends dog Charlie.


Alfie Boe was superb, the Requiem ended with him singing a reworking of “Blackbird” originally by The Beatles.
Rachel Fuller wrote the Requiem to honour and remember all of the beloved animals who are no longer with us.



The Altar


This is Tammy and myself many years ago. I had just come out of hospital, I had been in a coma from which I was not expected to survive. The drs told my mother to keep talking to me as I may be able to hear her. She talked to me about Tammy, Tammy, Tammy. I eventually came out of the coma, the prognosis for my future was not good, but I have lived much longer than expected. 

The Animal Requiem can be downloaded from iTunes, and there are lots of videos from the service on You Tube. 

I only have one hospital appointment next week, so I can hopefully get back to some crafting.Wishing my crafting friends a lovely crafting week xxx

Alice In Wonderland Lantern



A lovely crafting friend recently gave me this die set, and this is my first attempt at making a lantern. I decided to turn it into an Alice in Wonderland themed lantern, and included an artificial tea light inside. I selected some  stamps from my large Alice collection, and coloured them with watercolours.






Thank you so much for paying me a visit. I would like to enter my Alice Lantern into the following challenges

A look Back



Indigoblu have decided to discontinue their international Design Team. I have enjoyed creating for them over the last few years. I thought I would remember some of my projects which I have created for Indigoblu.










Thank you for supporting my work over the years. Take care xxx
