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.
One of the things I love most about Polkadoodles’ artwork is the little toadstool embellishments that are found in almost every kit. So, I just had to include them in this card. This card took a lot of fussy cutting, which I normally avoid(!) but , it was worth it .
For God gave us a spirit not of fear but of power and love and self control.
The image I have used is from The Stamping Chef. It is coloured with Promarkers. I have used some old papers and embellishments from Hunkydory’s Antique Flourish range. The ribbon and gems are from my stash.
And to all the beasts of the earth and all the birds in the sky and all the creatures that move along the ground—everything that has the breath of life in it—I give every green plant for food.” And it was so.
Here is another card made with Hunkydory stash today. It is really simpled with die-cut pieces arranged onto a layered piece of decorated card stock.
