Watercolour spray

Have had a very busy few days looking after my Grandaughter. She has been very good, but today I was lifting her and have hurt my shoulder.

Have just come into my craft room to finish a card I started yesterday. It's my friends birthday next week so thought I'd better get one made. I have used one of Lindsey Masons stamps. It is just a tiny flower head, but I really like it. Iused pens to colour the flower then spritzed it and stamped it onto watercolour paper. Then I drew in the stams and the leaves. I have backed it onto Elusive Image paper. The punch is a new one, Martha Stewarts arch lattice. It punched the mirror card brilliantly.

Sorry No pics

Quick christmas cards

At last found a few minutes to post some pics of the cards I made on hols of my quick Christmas cards.
I have also posted a pic of 2 dolls dresses and a little bag I have made for my grandaughter. She is just 18months old. I have bought her 2 dolls and a pram for christmas. So I am trying to kit them all out and also make some knitted things as well. I think I have my work cut out for me as I have also to make about 100 christmas cards as well.
I am tired at the moment , I am minding our grandaughter for 10hours a day for five days while her Mum and Dad are working, then I go back to work on Tuesday. I love having her and she is a joy to be with. We have lots of fun. Last week she had her first stamping session, she kept saying more, more for paper to stamp on. We both ended up covered in blue ink and needles to say ended up in the bath to get clean. Which was real fun.
Today I have been to Hand Made Heaven in Chorley with two friends. We went to watch Lindsey Mason demonstrating her designs for Personnel Impressions using lots of different pens and different techneques. She was very good and we had a very enjoyable afternoon.

I have just had three lovely days away over in Yorkshire at Hunmanby. It was great the sun was out all the time and it was lovely and warm. Visited Filey and Bridlington on Saturday. Then Sunday I visited a large car boot near to Scarborough and had a lovely time. I even managed to make a few quick small Christmas cards while I was away. Will try to take a picture soon.
I know I'm back home the weather as changed to normal wet and dull. Must get all the washing done somehow then I can get back to crafting.

Had a nice afternoon out with my best friend, having a good chat and a shop. Thought I'd come up here in the messy room and show her my blog. She's quite impressed, I'll get her to join in eventually. She also makes beautiful cards.

Here's a card I made for someone's Diamond Wedding.

Sorry posted the same one twice, promise I'll get the hang of this sooner or later.

I don't believe it!! I've done the same thing twice. What an idiot. I don't know how to remove them.

These are the ones I did earlier over a few weeks.

Hi thanks for your lovely comments. I have just managed to take pics of my cards I finished last night, they are both birthday cards.

I will also post some that I have done earlier.

Here is a card I made a few weeks ago using Elusive Image stamps.

First Post

Hi I am a keen craft blog hopper. So I thought it was about time I tried it for myself.
I have my own small craft room which soon becomes chaotic. I have been making cards for about 8years.
I live up North with my lovely Husband and we have two grown up children.
