Bright and Beautiful

Hello, how are you today? 

I have been having fun with Tracy’s stamps again, and this time I have combined  it with hanging flowers from Chocolate  Baraque. I used watercolours to create the background, and to colour the images. I think this lovely little lady is out having a nice spring walk in the park. 

Thank you for visiting me today, I hope you are staying safe, and enjoying crafting, it helps to take your mind off things for a while doesn’t it xx

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges

Wish Big

I’m back again already with another card this time made for challenges at Paperbabe Sketch Challenge  and  Happy Little Stampers Stencil Challenge. It is a very different card to what I normally make, but it is always good to try something different. It is more of a clean and simple card, I used a stencil for the stars. The Wish Big stamp is by Altenew. I found a lovely piece of ribbon in my drawer which helped complete the look for the sketch challenge at Paperbabe.

Thank you for stopping by today and please stay safe xx

Be Kind

Hello, I hope you are keeping warm and safe during these snowstorms. It does look so pretty when you know you don’t have to go out in it ! 

I have been keeping myself busy and trying to distract myself from the covid-19 nightmare by creating for several challenges. It is shortly coming up for a year since I have been staying home. Who could have ever imagined it would go on for so long, with so many precious lives lost. 

For this card I used  the lovely new stamps by Tracey Easson, and coloured them with watercolours. I used a combination of watercolours and Brushos to create the background.

Holding on to Hope

Hello how are you? It is a long time since I have posted as I have been unwell and unable to craft. 
I have recently started to craft again. I am of course still staying home, and like so many others I have since March last year. We are in another Lockdown here in the UK, and things have been much worse in my area than they were when the Pandemic first began. Who could have ever imagined over 100 thousand people in this country would lose their lives to this awful virus. 

I have been attempting some art journalling, and I decided to try and draw a swan, which is above. She holds a heart in her mouth with the word Hope on it. 

I plan to visit everyone’s blogs soon, and I hope to take part in challenges again.
Take care and please stay safe xx

Christmas Card and Gift in One


Hello and thank you for visiting me today, I hope you are doing ok in this very difficult time. Christmas is certainly going to be very different this year, we are now in High  Tier 2. I wish people would just follow the simple rules, or those of us who are vulnerable will never be able to leave our homes.

In the circumstances I wanted to make extra special cards this year to send to family and friends, so I have included a wooden bauble which can be detached from the card and hung up elsewhere if they desired.All the details about how I made it are on the Calico Craft Parts Blog

Please stay safe xx

The Witching Hour


Hello, I hope all is well with you today? I am continuing to stay home, and only going out for necessary medical appointments. There does not seem to be any light at the end of this very long  tunnel, so I will turn on my torch and just keep going.

I have recently made this Witching Hour Mixed Media plaque, which is currently hanging in our porch, ready for Halloween. It was fun and easy to create, more details are on the Calico Craft Parts Blog .

Thank you for visiting and Please stay safe xx

A Red Squirrel Visitor


Hello, I hope all is well with you today, we are lucky to still be having some sunny days here. I have missed  going to the local forest this year, especially now as Autumn will soon be arriving. Sadly the second wave of Covid has already started so I continue to stay home, as I have since March. 

I can’t remember the last time I saw a Red Squirrel as they are sadly so rare in the UK now. My sister sees them in the Lake District, but we don’t have any in London. Nether the less I have one visiting me today by the magic of crafting. I had a lot of fun making him, and giving him a lovely bushy tail. I have jotted down a few details on how I made this Autumn Tag on the Calico Craft Parts Blog. I hope you can visit.

Please stay safe, this virus is sadly not going away any time soon. Look after yourselves.

Thank you for visiting, hugs xx
