It's the little things that matter most....

Hello! Hope you are all well! Well, looking out of the window of my craft hovel, the sun is shining, and my little bit of the world looks lovely today. Shame I have had to be in a conference room all day - but it is making me yearn for my holidays! I had a lovely weekend - including visiting my not too far away joy emporium (The PaperLane) on Saturday to see Clare Rowlands (Molly Blooms) on her demo day. Clare is running a workshop there next week, so I'm going to go to play, along with three good friends, so a day of craft and chatter is in order! Can't blinking wait! Lol!

I have made this card for my lovely friend Wendy (The Stamp Attic), as she is stocking Molly Blooms too! This should be winging it's way to Oxfordshire shortly, after I have got my act together and get more samples sorted! Lol! I love this Hero Art sentiment - thought it would be nice for a thank you card, or a card just to say 'Hi!'. This uses the gorgeous Prima Botanical papers - I have some flowers that match this paper....just can't bring myself to use them though!!
Well, off to continue the creative journey...(so can't take myself seriously saying that!!) Actually, I'm off to do the washing up! Lol! See  you soon!

Guilt Post No 1!

Hello All! This is a post that is totally inspired by guilt!! I cannot believe that it has been so long since I have posted on my blog! I'm glad that my blog is not an actual person, as I think I would be off it's Christmas card list by now! Lol! Still, the mojo has returned from it's round the world trip,  complete with a suntan - so I am glad to say that normal service should be resumed!
This card I have made for the The PaperLane. This stamp is from a Panduro Tilda set called Seaside. This set is quite different for me - colouring her in was fun - she is on Panduro Seaside papers too. I love her bag with her thermos and towel! Really quite sweet. I have coloured her with Copics.
The frame was from the Panduro set, with a Hero Arts sentiment inside. The frame has been edged with a little bit of sparkly pen, just to make it pop! You can see the shimmer on her dress - the whole card was spritzed with a shimmer spray to make it sparkle - can't help myself adding lots of sparkle! The button is from the En Provence buttons at The PL - if you look below you can see the sparkle and colours that run through the button too.
The little flowers are punched with a Martha Stewart Hydrangea punch, with a small dot of Viva Decor cream pen for the centres.
Right! Off to make a cuppa and then play with the goodies I have picked up today! Thanks for looking!
