Well Hello from Bristol this Mothering Sunday. I have just watched Songs of Praise which was a blessing. I have been treated today but still miss my own mother , despite it being nearly 19 years since she went home. I feel for those who can’t be with their loved ones today, due to risk of viral infection, especially my own sister who is home alone with her low immunity :-(.
But to look on the bright side… In between distance teaching and marking my classes work, I think I will get in more crafting than usual over coming weeks and some time in the garden.
Greetings! My blog posts seem to be few and far between these days – I can only put this down to the pressures of work and family. I have three teenagers at home and I am a teacher. This week has been 1/2 term. so that has been lovely and I have managed to get some crafting in. This does mean that I will be spending the weekend working though…
But to more enjoyable matters. My DT card for Creative Moments is made using a digistamp called Stardust 3 , from:
I coloured the image using Promarkers and then dug out some very old stash to mount it. The papers are from Hot Off The Press – one of my favourite paper brands. I had a small amount of this paper left and cut around the flowers and butterflies to make it look as though the little figure is pepping out from behind the flowers in the garden. I finished off with a sentiment topper from Hunkydory and some iridescent glitter.
So, a fiftieth party of fizz and cake, for two friends who like running! I found these two perfect digis on Polkadoodles’ Etsy store and used backing card from Hunkydory. I cut some of the backing cards to use the bunting and cupcakes as embellishments. And di dthe inside too. (Apologies for the ascribbling, I should have photographed before writing), I then made a gift tag using the same Hunkydory kit.
Creative Moments has lots more fun cards at there Just fro Fun challenge this week!
I have made a huge batch of Christmas cards using Hunkydory’s Miracle of Christmas pack. This car is my favourite. It is not clear in the mage, but the frame around the main topper is raised on foam pads as it the sentiment.
Today’s card shows two delightful Mice Skaters who are pretty in pink! This digi is from
He is usually known for darker and more Gothic images and this digi could be coloured that way too, Ihave gone cute though! There is more pink inspiration on Creative Moments and you can enter the challenge there to win digistamps from Rick. The backing paper is from Hunkydory and the sentiment is made using a Die-ire die.
This week I have made a cards using a decorative sentiment from:
It does look like I have beautiful handwriting and am capable of wonderful calligraphy. Alas no…but who needs to? I printed and cut the sentiment digistamp and cut it out using a Spellbinder die. The card is assembled using Hunkydory “Bygone Times” elements and papers. Please take a look at the other DT inspiration and enter the challenge here.
