Creative Moments Challenge – Anything goes

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.

My DT card for Creative Moments this week is made using a digistamp called Flower Doodles from

I coloured the image using Promarkers using really subtle colours.  It was then mounted on a 7 x 7 ” patterned card.  I have decided which friend will get this card.

Creative Moments Challenge – For the Girls!

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.

Creative Moments Challenge – Spring colours

Apparently, Monday was the first day of spring.    Hmmm…it was wet and windy here in Bristol, but the sun came out eventually.

My card today, for the new Creative Moments challenge uses a digistamp from

I coloured the sweet fairy and her friends using Promarkers and embellished with some wooden lasercut toadstools, which are also coloured.  The sentiment was typed onto the page before printing – all ready for Mothering Sunday, next weekend. The wings were printed separately to allow me to shape and decoupage them for dimension.

Creative Moments challenge – Autumn colours

I have recently bought a set of watercolour pencils and have used them to colour this image.  The backgrounds were printed from a digikit called Thanksgiving that was free from Daisytrail some time ago.  All elements have been distrssed with Ranger Vintage photo ink.
