Fabric squares...

Good Morning all...
I have an inset day today so I should be cardmaking but I stayed a little too long after dropping my daughter to school to chat and join in with the Easter Egg raffle and now I am blogging!
So lets get on...
I saw these fabric squares in my local fabric store and couldn't resist...they were in a row of 8 for 50p...
 
I trimmed and then sewed them onto linen...cut and frayed the edges and then mounted onto two layers of co-ordinating card...
 
 I added glitter glue to the stems and gems to the flower centres and beads and sequins to the butterflies...
 
 


Just needed a change from colouring in stamped images...
Will be back to that soon as I have lots of new Wild Rose Studio DT stash to use.
 
If you love Wild Rose Studio then we are looking for 2 new DT members so check out the details and the stamps and come join a lovely team!
 
Creative Card Crew challenge is Spring so I hope these little cards are jolly enough! 
Back soon with lots more to show!

A sunny Saturday in Bognor Regis

Good Morning all
I know I should do some crafting today but I really wanted to be out and about and taking advantage of living by the seaside..


Breakfast at our favourite beach cafe...





 The beginning of the season is officially April 1st, but the weather was glorious   this morning so it felt like summer already.
This little blue train runs all day from one end of the promenade to the other.


 Lots of new apartment blocks are springing up along the seafront....
 I quite fancy living in one of these when I am older...


 I love these seaside shops and these colourful windmills.
Promise to do some crafting soon.....

Happy Mothers day!

Hi all...
Just wanted to pop on here and share another 
Mothers day card and hope that all the mums around the world have enjoyed a little bit of pampering today...


I started the day quite early with a cup of tea and a tin of chocolates from my daughters, then we set off to watch my eight year old sing in the school choir at a special Mothers day service in our local Church.
The children sang beautifully and then handed out posies of flowers...
 
Yesterday our school choir competed in the Chichester Music festival and won the Primary School Choir category...
They really are excellent!
 
 
 The rest of my day consisted of a little bit of crafting and then out for some food in Smith 'N' Western...Ribs and Chicken...Yummy!
 

 Relaxing now with some TV before bed and then another busy week...
Thanks for popping by..

A flower for Mum...

Good Afternoon everyone....
I'm back with a Mothers Day card...
and I've kept it along the CAS lines....

 White space with a single stem...I used all my daisy punches in various sizes, layered up with a pearl centre.

I couldn't resist buying these felt leaves from The Works...

Irridescent butterfly and K&Co alphabet tiles are great for finishing touches...
I also had to add lots of glitter!

Some challenges...
CraftyCatz...Mothers Day
Papertake Weekly...Mum/one for the Girls
Allsorts...Say it with flowers

Hope you have all had a good week...
It's nearly the weekend...so I'm really hoping that I can do some crafting.
It's been a couple of weeks since I had a good session in my craft room.
Wild Rose Studio have got lots of new stamps and papers, including Bella, who is a baby elephant. I am waiting for my DT parcel to arrive...so I can make some cards to show you...and look out for Paula Holifield, a very talented cardmaker who is the newest WRS DT member...
Thanks for popping by....

Lent Artwork for school....

Hi all...
Just sorting out some cards to show but first I thought I would show what I have been doing at school. 
Lent display with some artwork....
                                       Jesus goes into the desert....


The devil speaks to Jesus...
In our assembly, Father Andrew depicts the Devil as a woman with green eyes....
 and so begins the temptations.
Jesus is cold, alone and hungry....
Jesus proves his worth and the Devil gives up....the angels come to take care of him and Jesus travels again...


Our lenten path is filling up with footprints and I will photograph the whole display to show just before Easter...
Hope you like my drawings....
Back with some Mothers day and Easter cards soon...

Give us a hug...

Hello crafty bloggers...
Hope you are all having a nice week..
I can't believe it's a week since I posted a card...very naughty!
We had a lovely weekend away with friends who live on the Oxford/Cotswolds border so lots of fresh air walking to the pub....



This beautiful church is a stones throw from their house.

So here's a nice Spring coloured card using a Penny Black stamp.


Coloured with my promarkers...a touch of glitter..
lots of paper flowers and die cut swirls...


This glitter butterfly was from a Hobbycraft pack that I got in the sale...99p for a pack of 8...


I got these little pearls from Bunny Zoes.


Some challenges...

Delightful sketches...Spring colours

I've been very busy doing some artwork for school...I hope I can photograph it and show you soon...
I am selling at a Table top sale in school tomorrow...so fingers crossed it will be busy and the mums will come and buy before pick up time...
Thanks for stopping by my little blog.
Please leave me a comment and become a follower and I will do the same for you!
