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.
Hello everyone – I am sorry I have neglected you over the last few months, but I am back!
And I am returning full of the Christmas spirit with this seasonal cards. I have made dozens of Christmas cards and I find the faith cards sell so well at the craft fairs I attend, plus I can send those left to people I know.
I have made a card without a bow for the Creative Moments challenge, but as ever the theme is optional – you can enter here or do visit to take a look at what the rest of the DT have created. I am using a digi called Bethlehem with verse from Eureka. It is coloured using Promarkers in gradiated shades of blue, with a little metalic gold for the star and the stable – I love blue and gold at Christmas 🙂
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.
