I have been having a bit of a rest from blogging as I am unable to get on the computer until about 10. 15 pm most nights, due to my son sleeping in my craft room, he works nights.  By the time I have spent my time washing and ironing most days I'm too tired to be bothered.
Last week I decided to straighten up some of my craft stuff that I keep down stairs and re- organize it better. I kept losing where I had put things, so I was spending more time looking for things than crafting.
This week I couldn't resist buying  a craft magazine as there was a free set of Lavinia stamps on the front, so have been playing with my inks and some other Lavinia stamps that have not been out for a long time. I have managed to make four cards.

This is my favourite card and uses my new free stamps, I made the background using my duster brushes .
I added a bit of lace and a Tonic die.

This card was  made the same but used my older Lavania stamps.

Sorry I cut the bottom of the card off  in the haste to get my photo's taken. What am I like. This one is made with some of the new stamps, combined with some Cardio stamps as well. I then added little blak jewels to the flowers.

Here I have used my older stamps again.
I'll have to go now as I have been die cutting downstairs and left a lovely mess,  I need to tidy up then tomorrow I might get chance to finish a card I started today.
My friend took me to the garden centre today, so hoping that the weather will be nice so I can finish off my hanging baskets and tubs tomorrow.
Hope you are all having a good week. Thanks for dropping by. Love and crafty hugs x ChrisB


  1. These are beautiful - this is a magazine give away which I've not spotted yet but hopefully there are still some on the shelves!! I might be tempted yet again.

  2. they're lovely cards Chris - was very tempted myself but fairies not really my scene, so heroically resisted
