Rainbow Bridge

Hello I hope all is well with you today. I’ve ventured outside of my home just three times since March and that was only for much needed  medical appointments. I certainly miss going out. It is difficult to see an end to all of this isn’t it. 
Today I am sharing a Rainbow Bridge card which was going to be published in the July issue of Craft Stamper, but sadly the magazine has now closed down. I thought I would still share the card  as Pet Loss is a subject very close to my heart, and it may bring some comfort to someone xx

Take care and please stay safe xx

A little sharing Book case

Hello, how are you today? I am not sure how widespread this is, but where I live some people have been hand making little bookcases from boxes etc and placing them in their front gardens. They fill them with books for others to take or swap. I am not a book reader myself, but this is such a nice idea I thought I would make a miniature version using Calico Craft Parts Punch and Judy Kit and Graphic 45’s Mother Goose papers. I am not sure if the Mother Goose range is still available as I have had it for quite a number of years 😁 There are more details about my little bookcase on the Calico Craft Parts Blog

A Dream

Hello, I hope you are well, and surviving the difficult times our world is going through. I don’t ever dream but if I did,  I think I would be whisked up, up and away in my wheelchair by a cascade of beautiful butterflies. This imaginary dream inspired me to create my wall hanging, more details are on the Calico Craft Blog today. 

Please stay safe, this beastly virus is far from gone xx

Hello how are you, during this very different Summer? Ive not been out since early March when my dr  called me and told me to stay home. So when the weather has been nice enough I have been spending my summer in the garden. Our sunflowers are my inspiration for this card.

I stamped my lovely little girl approximately halfway up the slimline card, and fussy cut around her top part and then cut straight across the card. After water colouring the inside of the card which would now be visible, I water coloured the little girl and the remaining  part of the front of the slim card. She is carrying sunflowers, but you can never have too many sunflowers, so I die cut some more in plain white card and water coloured them. I adhered some to the inside of the card, and also some on the front of the card. 

Thank you for visiting, please stay safe xx

Summer Garden

Hello, how are you today? A summer garden is my inspiration for my project over on Calico Craft Parts Blog today. I used some dried rose petals from our own garden for the pathway up to the door. I used a heart for the door as home is where the heart is.
Thank you for visiting, and please stay safe xx
